Is the revolution over?

November 30, 2006. Today marks the birth anniversary of one of the Philippines’ greatest national heroes, Andres Bonifacio, the proletariat revolutionary who lead the armed revolution against Spain. Unfortunately for him, ambitious local elites took over the momentary victory and persecuted him. Unfortunately for majority of Filipinos today, lives are still shackled in poverty and pseudo-democracy. The promises of his revolution have not been fulfilled.
