Commemorating his patriotism as he initiated to oust the colonizers in our country, Andres Bonifacio’s legacy is celebrated annually on November 30 and declared a NATIONAL HOLIDAY.


Led the Philippine Revolution against the Spanish empire, Andres Bonifacio is known as the “Father of the Philippine Revolution”. Unlike José Rizal, who is remembered on the day of his death, Andrés Bonifacio is commemorated on his birthday. The reason is that he was executed by his fellow countrymen and not at the hands of foreign colonizers because of the charges of sedition and treason.
Let us value his contributions through revisiting our Philippine history, reviving nationalistic and patriotic attitudes by participating in nation-building activities, and showing love to our fellow countrymen through respect. These are one of the few manifestations of him worthy of being emulated among our youths.
