Transcript of AGRARIAN REVOLT
Agrarian Uprisings of (1745 - 1746)
-The Agrarian Revolt was a revolt undertaken between the years 1745 and 1746 in much of the present-day CALABARZON (specifically in Batangas, Laguna and Cavite) and in Bulacan, with its first sparks in the towns of Lian and Nasugbu in Batangas. Filipino landowners rose in arms over the land-grabbing of Spanish friars, with native landowners demanding that Spanish priests return their lands on the basis of ancestral domain.
The refusal of the Spanish priests resulted in much rioting, resulting in massive looting of convents and arson of churches and ranches. The case was eventually investigated by Spanish officials and was even heard in the court of Ferdinand VI in which he ordered the priests to return the lands they seized. The priests were successfully able to appeal the return of lands back to the natives, which resulted in no land being returned to native landowners.
One of the earliest revolutionary leaders in the history of the Philippines was Diego Silang. To put an end to the tyrannical Spanish regime in Ilocos, he forged an alliance with the British forces. He visualized an independents Ilocano nation in the northern part of the Philippines.
Diego Silang y Andaya was born to Miguel Silang and Nicolasa Delos Santos, on December 16, 1730 in Aringay, Pangasinan
He was a witness to the abusive management of the Spanish officials and friars over the native indios during the early phases of his life. Perhaps, this is one of the events that shaped his mind and fueled his revolutionary desires.
He served as a helper and messenger of Fr. Cortes y Crisilo, the Castillan parish priest of Vigan, Ilocos Sur
