The Fires of Revolution: Shared History, Shared Destiny

Teresita Ang See

Abstract

This lecture underscores the mutual help and support that existed between the Chinese and the Filipinos as early as the 19th century. Chinese records, for example, are replete with writings of Chinese revolutionaries in praise and admiration of the Filipino revolutionaries who dared to fight not just one but two foreign white colonizers. This shared history reflects even more clearly the closeknit relations between the Filipinos and the Chinese as well as the common history and a common destiny they shared.
