February 4, 1899 - The Philippine uprising against U.S. imperialism begins. This is how the “democratic” U.S. responded to the people’s just demands.
“The Philippine-American War of 1899-1913 (also known as the Philippine Insurrection) was the bloodiest colonial war ever fought by a white power in Asia. Also during the sixties the Philippine-American War was referred to as “the first Vietnam,” the death of 1.4 million Filipinos has been usually accounted for as either collateral damage or victims of insurrection against the imperial authority of the United States.”
