159th Bonifacio Day
November 30, 2022 PLMun Comm
The Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Muntinlupa (PLMun) joins the nation in commemorating the 159th birth anniversary of Andres Bonifacio.
Bonifacio Day is a national public holiday in the Philippines celebrated every 30th of November to remember the birth anniversary of one of the countryâ€™s heroes, Andres Bonifacio. He was born on November 30, 1863. He was one of the founders of a secret society of revolutionaries commonly known as the Katipunan. Acknowledged as the â€˜Father of the Philippine Revolution,â€™ he initiated the Philippine revolution against the Spanish Empire.
Bonifacio is remembered on his birthday, rather than the date of his death (as in the case of the main national hero, JosÃ© Rizal) as he was executed by the Filipino revolutionary government and not by the Spanish.
Up to this day, Andres Bonifacio's life is celebrated and commemorated for his bravery and love for his country. He remains an inspiration, in his life struggles and achievements as one of our nation's heroes.
