  Spanish Reign of Terror The flames of the revolutionary movement that seeks to change the existing social and political order gained momentum and evidently became a threat to Spanish authorities. In order to sow fear to the people and crushed the rebels, the Spanish soldiers resorted to the reign of terror entering indiscriminately houses of the suspected rebels through force in order to secure evidence against those who were directly involved in the uprising. Meanwhile, Governor-General Ramon Blanco issued a decree on August 30, declaring the provinces of Manila, Cavite, Batangas, Laguna, Bulacan, Pampanga, Tarlac and Nueva Ecija, in a state of war and placed them under Martial Law. The decree provided that “any person accused treachery on those against the present form of government”  will be tried by the military court, the decree provided for a proviso, that “those who would surrender to the Gov e rnment” within 48 hours after the publication of the decree” would be turned over the military court, except the leaders of the Katipunan.. Some Katipuneros took advantage of the proviso, but they were forced at the point of a bayonet to squeal about the secret society and its member for fear of pain to be inflicted. Hundreds were arrested and incarcerated in Fort Santiago. Torture by way of hanging the suspect, or the used of electric machine whose wires were connected to the feet and hands of the suspect were employed. Suspects in the provinces were hauled to Manila to suffer inhuman punishment. Hundreds of heads of families were shipped to the Spanish penal colony in Africa to receive what the Spaniards considered their “just punishment”. Several types of human violations against  the Filipino people were employed by the Spaniards. There were suspected Katipuneros who were executed in Cavite, Bicol, and Capis; but the most infamous injustice was executed by the Colonial Government at Bagumbayan Field (now the Rizal Park) on December 30, 1896. These executions did not deter the Filipinos to fight with intense passion up to the last drop of their blood. In spite of the Spanish terroristic policy to stop the revolution through imprisonment, torture and execution of the Katipuneros, the flames of the revolution did not stop the Filipinos to fight the Spanish tyranny.  Republic of the Philippines  Laguna State Polytechnic University    Santa Cruz- Main Campus Santa Cruz, Laguna S.Y. 2014-2015 Major 19: Philippine Nationalism (Written Report) Topic: Spanish Reign of Terror Submitted by: Talabis, Sumer Anne V.
