Rizal's Spanish biographer Wenceslao Retana and Filipino biographer Juan Raymundo Lumawag saw the formation of the Katipunan as Del Pilar's victory over Rizal: "La Liga dies, and the Katipunan rises in its place. Del Pilar and Rizal had the same end, even if each took a different road to it." Captured Katipunan members (also known as Katipuneros), who were also members of La Liga, revealed to the Spanish colonial authorities that there was a difference of opinion among members of La Liga.One group insisted on La Liga's principle of a peaceful reformation while the other espoused armed revolution.The name "Katipunan" comes from the full Tagalog name for the society: "Kataastaasan Kagalang-galang na Katipunan nang mga Anak nang Bayan" (Highest and Most Respectable Society of the Children of the People).
On July 7, 1892, writer José Rizal was banished and exiled to Dapitan in Mindanao.
That night Bonifacio, a member of the La Liga Filipina; with Plata, Diwa, Diaz, Arellano, and Dizon, founded the Katipunan in a house on Azcarraga St.
This organization was part of the late 19th century Propaganda Movement in the Philippines.
The founders of the Katipunan were Deodato Arrellano, Teodoro Plata, Valentin Diaz, Ladislao Diwa, Andres Bonifacio, and Jose Dizon.
The towns/cities which supported the Katipunan cause were given symbolic names, such as Magdiwang (to celebrate) for Noveleta; Magdalo (to come) for Kawit; Magwagi (to win) for Naic; Magtagumpay (to succeed) for Maragondon; Walangtinag (never-diminished) for Indang and Haligue (wall) for Imus–all are in the province of Cavite.
which was presided over by Bonifacio, Jacinto and Pío Valenzuela.In planning the revolution, Bonifacio contacted Rizal for his full-fledged support for the Katipunan in exchange for a promise to rescue Rizal from his detention.In May 1896, a delegation was sent to Emperor Meiji of Japan in order to solicit funds and military arms.The Supreme Council was headed by an elected president (pangulo), followed by the secretary/secretaries (kalihim); the treasurer (tagaingat-yaman) and the fiscal (tagausig).To distinguish from presidents of lower sanggunian or councils (below), the president of the Supreme Council was called the Supreme President (Tagalog: Kataas-taasang Pangulo; Spanish: Presidente Supremo).(now Recto Avenue) near Elcano Street in San Nicolas, Manila.Despite their reservations about the peaceable reformation that Rizal espoused, they named Rizal as honorary president, without his knowledge.was a Philippine revolutionary society founded by anti-Spanish colonialism Filipinos in Manila in 1892; its primary goal was to gain independence from Spain through a revolution.Documents discovered in the 21st century suggest that the society had been organized as early as January 1892 but may not have become active until July 7 of the same year; that was the date that Filipino writer José Rizal was to be banished to Dapitan.The Katipunan's existence was revealed to the Spanish authorities after a member named Teodoro Patiño revealed the Katipunan's illegal activities to his sister, and finally to the mother portress of the Mandaluyong Orphanage.Days after the Spanish authorities learned of the existence of the secret society, on August 1896, Bonifacio and his men tore up their cédulas during the Cry of Balintawak that started the Philippine Revolution of 1896.
