119th Celebration of Philippine Independence

Philippine independence was proclaimed on June 12, 1898 in the presence of a huge crowd at the ancestral home of General Emilio Aguinaldo between four and five in the afternoon in Cavite El Viejo, now known as Kawit.

This event was highlighted by the following: unfurling of the Philippine national flag sewed in Hongkong by Marcea Agoncillo, Lorenza Agoncillo and Delfina Herbosa; playing of the Marcha Filipina Madalo, by the San Francisco de Malabon marching band, as the country’s national anthem which was composed by Julian Felipe; and the reading of the Declaration of Philippine Independence which was written by Ambrosio Reinzares Bautista.

The proclamation of June 12, however, was later modified by another proclamation done at Malolos, Bulacan, upon the insistence of Apolinario Mabini. Mabini objected to the original proclamation as it basically placed the Philippines under the protection of the United States. (Philippine History and Government for College Students. Revised Edition. Carlito D. Garcia, EdD.Mandaluyong, Philippines: Books Atbp. Publishing Corp., 2015. Pages. 107-111 you can also visit, http://filipino.biz.ph/history  /declaration.html, for the full text of the Declaration of Independence.

This year’s celebration opened with a long parade participated by civic groups and government employees of Kawit, Cavite, the hometown of Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo. Sen. Panfilo Lacson is the Guest Speaker with the Theme: “Pagbabagong Sama-Samang Balikatin.” Secretary of Tourism, Wanda Corazon Teo is also present together with Cavite Congressmen and local officials.
