Transcript of LA SOLIDARIDAD
Members of La Solidaridad
In order to find a venue where the desire of the Propaganda Movement towards achieving assimilation can be expressed, La Solidaridad was established. The first issue of La Solidaridad came out on February 15, 1889. Published fortnightly, it served as the principal organ of the reform movement for 6 years.
In general, its funds came from the Comite de Propaganda in the Philippines. Rizal was first offered the position of its editorship. However, he declined because he was very busy annotating Antonio de Morga's Sucesos de las Islas Filipinos in London. In the end, Graciano Lopez Jaena showed interest in becoming the editor.
On April 25, 1889, La Solidaridad published the letter entitled "The aspirations of the Filipinos" which was written by the Asociacion Hispano-Filipina de Madrid. It pursued desires for:
-Representation in the Cortes
-Abolition of censure
-An expressed and definite prohibition of the existing practices of exiling residents by purely administrative order, and without a write of execution from the courts of justice
On December 15, 1889, Marcelo H. del Pilar replaced Graciano Lopez Jaena as the editor of La Solidaridad. Under his editorship, the aims of the newspaper expanded and drew the attention on politicians and even Spanish ministers. Using propaganda, it pursued desires for:
-That the Philippines be a province of Spain
-Representation Filipino priests instead of Spanish friars in parishes and remote sitios
-Freedom of assembly and speech
-Equal rights before the law
After years of publication from 1889 to 1895, La Solidaridad had begun to run out of funds. It ceased publication on November 15, 1895, with 7 volumes and 160 issues.

The La Solidaridad is composed of filipino Liberals exiled in 1872 and students attending Europe's univerisities. The organization aimed to increase Spanish awareness of the needs of its colony, the Philippines, and to propagate a closed relationship between the colony and Spain.
Headed by Galiciano Apacible, it laso issued a newspaper of the same name which was published in Barcelona, Spain on February 15, 1889. It was edited by Graciano Lopez Jaena and later on by Marcelo H. del Pilar.
