The Ongoing Revolution in The Philippines Explained

Why Is There an Armed Revolution Going on in the Philippines? In 1898, after 300 years of rule, Spain sold The Philipines to the United States for $20million.

Powerful landed dynasties and corporations now control  much of the country. Revolutionaries have been fighting for true independence and access to land throughout this time.
