As social awareness and political consciousness evolved in the nineteenth century Spanish Philippines a need for radical change became necessary. At first, the Filipinos requested reforms but, as their requests went unheeded, charismatic and visionary leaders arose from their ranks and united the masses in a more am.bitious crusade--independence. The previously docile population became fierce fighters successfully opposing their former colonial masters. In retrospect, this event was a classic example of the results of socio- political evolution, and a forecast of Southeast Asian history. The Philippine revolution consisted of two phases--the insurrection against the Spaniards, and the revolt against the Americans. Continuity between rhe phases was provided by an organization known as the Hong Kong Junta. The object of this thesis is to analyze the Junta, determine its purpose, and measure its impact.
