Ang Republika Federal sg Kabisay-an (The Federal Republic of the Visayas)

Historical Facts obviously omitted or deliberately hidden in our School History Books
(Source: History Reborn"The Federal Republic of the Visayas" -by: dinggol a.divinagracia*June 12, 2007)

*That Spain had already formally surrendered to the Federal Republic of the Visayas even before Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo was proclaimed Philippine President in Malolos, Bulacan on January 23, 1899. That our Independent Visayan Republic, had never been under the authority and jurisdiction of Aguinaldo's "Katagalogan" Republic in Luzon.

excerpted: "...A paper written by Jose Manuel Velmonte, a research associate at the UP Third World Studies Center, found that the Visayan revolutionary elites not only had sophisticated political ideas but also resented attempts by Malolos to assert its authority. A Tagalog military expedition sent by Malolos to Panay to assert its presence was met with hostility. The Luzon force led by Generals Ananias Diocno and Leandro Fullon was regarded by the Visayan revolutionaries, led by the Visayan supremo, Gen. Martin Delgado, as an ''invasion'' force ..." (Source: Inquirer-1999- 06-13 "View of revolt in provinces spurs revision" By: Amando Doronila)

According to Dr. Luis C.Dery, an eminent Filipino Scholar: "Expounding the extent of Aguinaldo's Philippine Army; the Bangsamoro nation's Mindanao, Sulu, and the rest of its islands never fell under Aguinaldo's politico-military control and sovereignty. In fact as late as August 1898 much of northern Luzon, southern Luzon, the Visayas, and Mindanao remained outside of the control of Aguinaldo's Republic. Thus, several military expeditions were sent to these places to bring' them to recognize the First Philippine Republic."

*That the 1898 Treaty of Paris preliminaries, should not have included territories of the sovereign "Visayan Nation"; the confederation of both the Central and Western Visayas Cantonal Governments by virtue of Spain's formal surrender prior to this U.S. and Spain treaty of peace (Paris) and the $20-million buy-out. Spain had no more legal rights to sell. In legal parlance "nemodat quod non habet” -meaning “you cannot give what is not yours”.

This diplomatic "Faux pas" that was supposed to be officially consummated and became legal and internationally binding only on APRIL 11, 1899 should, or rather must be rectified.
*June 12, 1898 -Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo proclaimed Philippine Independence from Spain in Kawit, Cavite --but never won the war against Spain, as explained in the infamous betrayal --the "Mock Battle of Manila of August 13, 1898".

*Nov. 6 & Dec. 23, 1898 -Spain formally surrendered to both; the Negros Republic that merged (Dec. 2, 1898) with the Federal Republic of the Visayas based in Iloilo (respectively)

excerpted: "...These two nations, from a purely legal point of view, are COMPLETELY LEGITIMATE UNTIL TODAY. This could imply that the Manila-based Tagalista-oriented Unitarian central government of the Philippines in the Visayas and Mindanao is an Occupational Government, that ultimately originated from an invalid Treaty of Paris...."

Ergo! we won our battle-scarred freedom and legitimate independence and became a sovereign nation. The "First" Republic in the whole of Asia, but was nipped-in-the bud by the ugly Americans. A diplomatic faux pas, a political blunder and a travesty of history! --dinggol.d~~~

2010 CPU Global Grand Reunion
JULY 1, 2, 3 2010


Fellow Alumni and Friends,

Come and join in the fun, fellowship and camaraderie with “old” and new friends.

Come to relive treasured school day memories and make new ones. Come to show your support for the school that provided excellent education and training. Come because you believe in what Reunions are all about—bridging the separation brought about by time and distance, so that we can once again celebrate as one body, our Central Spirit.

I thank God that we are able to make the 6th Global Reunion a reality in San Francisco, CA USA on July 1, 2, & 3 2010. Your presence is vital to the success of this endeavor. Please send your registration early to avail of special pricing in both registration and lodging. Invite your friends and family to join you—the more, the merrier.

Our theme: Enrichment in Times of Change. Even as we remember our past, let us look with anticipation and joy to the years to come; more importantly, let us appreciate the blessings we enjoy today, and make special moments with those whose lives are entwined with ours, through our common heritage and God’s love.

I look forward to seeing you next July. May God bless our plans.

I had written Dr. Ted Robles and Mr. Rey Cordova, CPU President and President of the CPUAA--MM chapter respectively, to inquire as to the process to use to provide aid to our country men and women in the wake of Ondoy and the possibility of more severe weather in the near future. Following is the relevant excerpt of the message I received tonight from Dr. Robles:

We at CPU are encouraging our constituents to donate for flood relief. Cash donations will be consolidated by our Outreach Office then channeled through Faith Baptist Church in Quezon City. I am going to discuss with the VP's how the University can help.

This event gives me an opportunity to roll out a significant break through for our FOAA efforts to facilitate the charitable gifts of our US-based alumni. Effective immediately, all donations channeled through the CPUFOAA for charitable purposes are tax deductible under section 170 of the Internal Revenue Code, as we have been determined as EXEMPT FROM FEDERAL INCOME TAX UNDER SECTION 501(c) (3) of the Code.

Therefore, please advise your members, other alumni, family and friends to send their donations to our attention, CPUFOAA, 440 S. Maple Avenue, Unit 2-S, Oak Park, IL 60302, and make the check out to Central Philippine University Federation of Overseas Alumni Associations, Inc. (CPUFOAA). In the Notes section of the check, please note the recipient/purpose, and in this instance, Flood Relief will suffice. The CPUFOAA will remit all donations in its entirety to Central Philippine University to be distributed to the appropriate agency in the Philippines for the use of the flood victims. All donations will be duly noted and confirmations will be sent to the donors by ourselves, as well as, acknowledgments from CPU and/or its associated agency/ies. We will make arrangements with CPU to release equivalent funds in the quickest possible way so aid could be timely.

I appreciate any and all efforts to support the urgent and massive need back home. To the extent that you and your circle of influence are able, please be generous with your donations. Most importantly, continue to take the people in need to the Lord in prayer, as He alone can offer true deliverance.

Praise God from whom all blessings flow--He is faithful and is with us through plenty and in want. Who knows, in these hard times, good fruit for His purpose may come about.

Best to you and yours, Perla
