Many revolution arouse, but all have failed.
In 1889, a group of Filipino mestizos in Barcelona, Spain established the Propaganda Movement.
Among its members were Marcelo H. del Pilar, Antonio and Juan Luna, Graciano Lopez Jaena, Mariano Ponce, and Jose P. Rizal.
The group's objective was to fight the Spanish Government and the friars who control it by exposing their corruption and atrocities to the Filipinos through writing on their own newspaper La Solidaridad. But due to internal affairs, one of its leading members Jose Rizal left the group.
Jose P. Rizal, an optalmologist, a popular writer and an active reformist wrote two novels called Noli me Tangere (1887) and El Filibusterismo (1891), both are about the social status of the Philippines under the Spanish regime.
When Rizal returned from Europe to Philippines in 1892, he established the La Liga Filipina. Its goal was to implement reforms inside the colony. Despite its avowed aims for peaceful reforms, the government felt threatened by its existence and had it disbanded.

When Rizal was arrested, the La Liga Filipina was divided into two factions, the conservatives formed Cuerpo de Compromisarios which pledged to continue supporting La Solidaridad while the radicals led by
