La Liga Filipina

03 July 1892. Tondo, Manila. Jose Rizal establishes the "La Liga Filipina," a nationalistic civic organization that sought, among others, to solidify efforts at seeking redress for injustices committed by Spain against Filipinos. Elected president of the society was Ambrosio Salvador. The founding of the Liga led to Rizal's arrest by the guardia civil and to his subsequent exile to Dapitan.
