But Spain resisted all attempts to change. What they reaped was even more agitation and finally, their expul sion. The spark that ignited the canon volleys finally arrived with the arrest and trial of propagandist Dr. His public execution at dawn by a firing squad at the field of Bagumbayan in Luneta in December gave fresh momentum to simmering Filipino rebels to finally resort to arms and expel the Spaniards in The Revolution that soon ensued is also heralded as the first anti-colonial independence movement in Asia.
