Unfortunately, even the second report was left ignored by the governor general. The Calambenos were left to continually suffer the retaliations of the Friars for even reporting their troubles, and the Calambenos were getting evicted from their homes. It was evident during this time that the Spanish government did not care about the well-being of the Indios, and Rizal was deeply affected by it.
Rizal said his farewells to his family and friends at the yearwhere he departed for Europe once again. Along the route to Europe, he stopped by at Japan to live at the Spanish Legation.
There, he met O Sei San, a Japanese woman whom he had expressed his interest. But Rizal was headed for Europe, and so he said sayonara to his Japanese lover. America could not give Rizal any form of inspiration or leisure. He once again departed, now aboard the ship City of Rome, headed directly to London, in Europe. In London, he stayed with an English family. There he met Gertrude Beckett, yet another woman who grew fond of Rizal.
It was also meant as an attack on Spanish beliefs regarding ancient Filipinos, who were thought of as savages and cavemen. After Rizal finished his annotated history of the Philippines, a new organization formed, the La Solidaridad, founded by Mr.
In the La Solidaridad, Rizal found his medium for expressing his hatred to the friars and the Spanish government in the Philippines. He wrote the The Indolence of the Filipinos, expressing that the Indios had, at one time, a rich civilization with various international relations, rich culture and diverse knowledge of crafts.
He once again noted that the indolence of the Filipinos were caused by Spanish colonialism, mainly due to the abuses of the encomenderos. In this article Rizal expresses his thoughts regarding Filipino women, that they should not always be under the beck and call of the friars, and that they should inculcate to their sons the notions of national pride and courage. The last of the three well known articles in the La Solidaridad is the Philippines a Century Hence, where in Rizal tried to predict the future of the Philippines.
He noted that eventually, the Philippines would separate itself from Spain, an event that will become inevitable if the Philippines were not assimilated and made as a Spanish province.
While Rizal was in Europe, the attacks of the Friars intensified, more and more Filipinos were evicted from their homes in Calamba. The Rizal family also lost their case in the Supreme Court and they were evicted from their homes. Rizal by now felt great hatred towards Spain, and independence seemed to be the only option. The foremost work of Rizal in his second voyage of Europe is his highly controversial novel, El Filibusterismo. He had been working on this sequel of Noli Me Tangere after its publication, and after the troubles that he experienced regarding the leadership of Filipino expatriates, he devoted more time to writing and revising the El Fili.
Rizal had gone through many difficulties in its publication, but still he was determined to see it finished. In the El Fili, he attacked not only the Spanish friars, but the Spanish government officials as well.
At this stage of Rizal life, he was sure that for the Philippines to prosper and gain relief, the Philippines must endeavour to separate itself from Spain. The articles that he wrote for the La Solidaridad, his literary works, and his second novel were all aimed towards the uplifting of Filipino nationalism and the awakening of ideals that are deemed to be against colonialism and foreign domination.
Rizal, at this stage of his life, now holds the title of a revolutionary, and he will not not shrink from the idea of independence, unlike before. He left both letters to his friend Dr.
Lorenzo Marques of Macao and asked that those letters be published after his death. The two letters spoke of his love for his family and for the Philippines, that his death was a way to liberate them from their miseries. His family will be liberated from the burden that his actions have put upon them.
And that his country will be liberated from the oppressors that have stayed in his country for much too long. Though every part of the letter was striking, perhaps the summarizing parts were placed on the last lines: They will then be able to return to our country and be happy in it.
Whatever my fate may be, I shall die blessing her and longing for the dawn of her redemption. Rizal, in his novel El Filibusterismo, expressed his views on how the Revolution should take place, in the immortal words of Padre Florentino: When a people reach these heights, God provides the weapon, and the tyrants will fall… What is the use of independence if slaves today will be the tyrants of tomorrow.
The revolutionaries, as Rizal as stated, must have a clear goal that encompasses future generations, and this goal must be the thrust of the revolution.
Rizal and Lucia went to the customs house, after which they settled down for a while in the Hotel de Oriente. It was also believed that Andres Bonifacio is a great admirer of Rizal. Sometime after Rizal conducted his meeting for the Liga Filipina, Rizal was arrested for possession of subversive documents.

The authorities then planned to exile Rizal in Dapitan, an island in the northernmost parts of Mindanao. Rizal reached Dapitan on Julyas a prisoner, he found it a sleepy town and he wanted to wake it up, with the help of his friend Father Sanchez. The statutes stated that: Union of the archipelago into a compact, vigorous, homogenous body. He especially wanted to practice in Dapitan, the 4th and 5th statutes of La Liga Filipina. In one of his letters to Father Pastells he said: During his stay in Dapitan, he was visited by Dr.
Pio was ordered by Andres Bonifacio to invite Rizal in leading the Revolution. Rizal declined for he knows that the Filipinos are not yet ready for such a revolution.
He showed his adherence for his principles and convictions. Pio that a country should be ready before it begins to strive for its own independence. And for a country to be ready to have independence, education is necessary. The leaders should know what they really want to be sure that if one of them gets corrupted, they will be the ones to kick him out. He showed this in his novel El Filibusterismo, when he failed the revolution of Simon.
But showed that there is still hope if the Filipinos can just like be Padre Florentino. He was an educated man; a man who knows how to use wealth and knowledge to his advantage. Here was a budding friendship born of an intimate love for all things Philippine Guerrero In his biography of Rizal, Leon Ma.
Guerrero remarks, "It is a charming and, in its own way, fascinating correspondence Four months into the correspondence, Rizal mustered the courage to suggest that they exchange photographs. Blumentritt readily obliged, while Rizal sent a self-portrait done in crayon Guerrero It was also to Blumentritt that Rizal sent one of the earliest available copies of his Noli Me Tangere Guerrero; see also Rizal to Blumentritt, 21 March summarized in Ocampo The Meeting After five years in Europe, Rizal longed for home.
On this way back, however, Rizal took an extended tour of Europe, visiting such places as Prague and Vienna, Stuttgart and Munich, Geneva and Basel, Rome and Marseilles before heading to the Philippines. The tour made it possible for him to spend a few days in Leitmeritz to finally meet his Austrian friend.
This visit lasted a mere four days. Accompanied by his wife and children, Blumentritt met the two travelers at the train station and helped them check in at the Hotel Krebs.
Blumentritt would meet up with his Filipino guests after breakfast and take them around the city. Each day would end with dinner at the Blumentritt home. Before finally leaving Leitmeritz, Rizal left a pencil sketch of Blumentritt, as a memento of their all too brief but memorable encounter Guerrero That such is the case is evident in an emotional letter Rizal wrote to Blumentritt two days after leaving Leitmeritz, "…my heart was full, and I asked myself: What have I done to deserve the friendship and sympathy of such kind souls I will also bear in mind my good friends in Leitmeritz and I will say Arriving back in the Philippines in AugustRizal kept his Austrian friend informed of events and conditions in the Philippines.
He wrote about his medical practice, which he engaged in so as not to be a burden to his family. He spoke also of the fear of his family and friends, of how he would avoid calling on friends so as not to put them in any danger, and of how everyone wanted him to leave the country.
Here are four of the most pervasive mysteries surrounding him. Rizal was the father of Adolf Hitler. To this day, he is revered with a street and statue in Wilhelmsfeld. In fact his novel, Noli Me Tangere, was first published in Berlin in Rizal certainly made an impact in Germany. Perhaps they had a torrid affair that led to a monstrous love child?
Is it a bit of an overreach to say that Rizal named his beloved character, Maria Clara, after Klara Polzl? There is no substantiating evidence to prove that Rizal was gay, although many point to his relationship with author Ferdinand Blumentritt as being unusually close. Was he the reason that even after so many international conquests, he was never able to pass on his greatness? We can only speculate.
