GOMBURZA Execution Scene


"GOMBURZA is an acronym for Fathers Mariano Gómez, José Apolonio Burgos, and Jacinto Zamora, three Filipino priests who were executed on
February 17, 1872 at Bagumbayan in Manila, Philippines by Spanish colonial authorities on charges of subversion arising from the 1872 Cavite Mutiny.
Their execution (by garrote) left a profound effect on many Filipinos; José Rizal, the national hero, would dedicate his novel El Filibusterismo to their memory".

"The uprising by workers in the Cavite Naval Yard was the pretext needed by the authorities to redress a perceived humiliation from the principal
objective, Father Jose Burgos (as seen on the right, below) who threatened the established order..." ( Source: ).

Here is the actual place where they were executed: .
Their remains currently lie in peace at the Paco Cemetery.

We must forever be aware that racism, discrimination, and intolerance are the same evils of today that martyred the three priests --Gomez, Burgos, and Zamora long long time ago. We must strive to be united in developing an open, humane, compassionate, and cosmopolitan society and nation of modern Filipinos in order for us to survive and progress as a country.

You're right, I just saw a copy of the original a few weeks ago in a museum - their picture was on the cover.
"El Filibusterismo" it is! (meant to update, but so many assignments have made editing take a back seat lately). :-)
