  Diego Silang - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Diego Silang y Andaya (December 16, 1730 - May 28, 1763) was a native Ilocano revolutionary leader who conspired with British forces to overthrow the Spanish in the northern Philippines and establish an independent Ilocano nation.
His revolt was fueled by grievances stemming from Spanish tributes and abuses, and his belief in self-government, that the administration and leadership of the Roman Catholic Church and government in the Ilocos Region should belong to trained Ilocano officials.
While Silang initially wanted to replace Spanish functionaries in the Ilocos with native officials, and volunteered to head Ilocano forces against the British, desperate Spanish administrators transferred their powers to the Catholic Bishop of Nueva Segovia (Vigan) who in turn rejected Silang's call.

Silang was born in the barrio of Canlogan, Santa, Ilocos Sur, on March 19, 1731.
Silang was able to muster a fighting force of 2,000 men armed with assorted weapons – Spanish muskets captured from the enemy bamboo spears hardened in the fire (bikal) bows and arrows (pana), blowguns (sumpit), bleded weapons (bolos, draggers, and swords), and head axes (wasay).
Silang, the leader and last survivor of the lost rebellion, was brought to Vigan, where she was publicly hanged on September 20, 1763.

Diego Silang the first liberator of the Ilocos, was born in Aringay, La Union, on December 16, 1730, the son of Miguel Silang of Aringay and Nicolasa de los Santos of Vigan.
In 1757, at the age of 27, Silang married a rich young widow, Maria Josefa Gabriela, a native of Santa, Ilocos Sur.
She proved to be a fitting mate for Silang, who was then rising to prominence in Vigan as the leader of kailanes (peasants) who were deplorably oppressed by the Spanish authorities and their rich mestizo satraps.

Amidst this widespread difficulty both in the Ilocos of Diego Silang and in the Tayum that the novel literarily reconstructs, the novel categorically states that Kapitan Pena uses his position to enrich himself and that he exploits colonial social structure and hierarchy to accomplish this.
At the time of Silang and of the uprising, the term Filipino did not yet apply to the likes of Tacio and had not acquired a political meaning, that is, to refer to all the “sons and daughters of the country” regardless of racial origins (B. Anderson in Quibuyen 88).

As a resident of BCDA, Diego Silang Village, Taguig, there's no month or quarter that no life has been taken away, along C5, just across our village due to no overpass provided to the residents of this village.
Recently, as I've said almost all the residents of BCDA Diego Silang Village are army & policemen, there's this policewoman has been hit by a truck....so from the pedestrian lane where the policewoman was crossing, perhaps assuming that the truck would slow down, but it never did.
If this continues years from now, without overpass provided to Diego Silang Village residents, I can't imagine how many families would suffer this great distress and horrifying caused of death of their love ones.
