MANILA – The National Historical Commission of the Philippines and the City Government of Manila will lead the commemoration of the 125th Anniversary of the Founding of La Liga Filipina on 3 July 2017, 8:00 a.m. at the La Liga Filipina Historical Landmark, Ilaya, Tondo, Manila. 

Wreath laying rites will be participated by Manila Mayor Joseph Ejercito Estrada, NHCP Acting Executive Director Ludovico D. Badoy, Division of City Schools Superintendent Dr. Wilfredo E. Cabral, Jose Rizal’s descendant Mrs. Amelia Garcia-Yulo, and First District of Manila Barangay Chairman Siada Ang, Jr. 

Rizal organized the La Liga Filipina upon his return to the Philippines on 3 July 1892. According to the constitution that Rizal prepared, the organization aimed: to unite the whole archipelago into one compact, vigorous and homogenous body; mutual protection in every want and necessity; defense against all violence and injustice; encouragement of instruction, agriculture and commerce; study and application of reforms.

Because of this movement, the Spanish authorities were alarmed and they ordered the arrest and deportation of Rizal to Dapitan. The Liga became inactive but it was reorganized through the concerted efforts of Domingo Franco and Andres Bonifacio. Its aspirations remained the same, but it was agreed that all should contribute to support La Solidaridad in Spain.

However, due to the differences in principles among its members, the La Liga Filipina was dissolved and led to the formation of the Cuerpo de Compromisarios and the Katipunan.

The NHCP is the national government agency mandated to promote Philippine history through its museums and publications, and preserve the nation’s historical heritage through conservation and the marking of historic sites and structures.
