ABOUT

This website opened on 2 November 2013 in commemorating in Sydney the sesquicentennial birth anniversary of the Philippine hero, Andres Bonifacio.

Readers and other members of the community are encouraged to submit materials related to the life and works of Andres Bonifacio.

The radio festival, one of the highlights of Sydney’s celebration, is aired with the support of the Philippine Consulate General in Sydney – the main organiser of the film screening of “Paglilitis ni Bonifacio” in Sydney.

The radio festival is a four-part series to be aired from 8-9pm by Radio Dalisay community radio programs over 99.3FM 2NBSB. Airing is November 3, 10, 17 and 24 over Radio Dalisay and other community radio stations including the national SBS Filipino radio.

NOTE: Due to public demand, the radio festival extended to December 8 with two additional episodes (December 1 and December 8).

The film “Paglilitis…” is a 2010 indie film by late Mario O’Hara, and an entry to the 6th annual Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival.

Andres Bonifacio was a Filipino nationalist and revolutionary, and often called “Father of the Philippine Revolution”. He was a founder and later Supremo (supreme leader) of the Katipunan movement which sought the independence of the Philippines from Spanish colonial rule and started the Philippine Revolution.
