   The Commonwealth Government, established under the Tydings-McDuffie Law, was inaugurated on November 15, 1935. Under this government the Filipino people were placed on a probationary period for ten years to determine whether they were capable of running their own affairs. The commonwealth was terminated on July 4, 1946 when, under the administration of President Manuel A. Roxas, the Stars and Stripes was pulled down and the Philippine flag was hoisted alone on its staff, signifying the end of the American colonial regime in the Philippines. In a proclamation issued by President Harry S. Truman on that day, the United States government announced its recognition of the independence of the Philippines as a “separate and self-governing nation.” The independence recognized by the United States on June 4, 1946, was the same independence proclaimed by General Emilio Aguinaldo on June 12, 1898, in Kawit, Cavite. In other words, the United States did not grant but merely recognized the independence of the Philippines. General Aguinaldo, who was still living on July 4, 1946, was quoted as saying that the United States merely “restored” the independence that was forcibly taken from the filipino people during the Philippine-American War, 1899-1901.

   The Commonwealth Government had barely passed the half-way mark when Japanese militaries, on December 8, 1941, attacked the American naval base at Pearl Harbor, thus involving the Philippines in the Second World War. President Manuel L. Quezon fled to Corregidor, then to Australia, and finally to Washington, carrying on the fight with his Commonwealth-in-exile. In the meantime the Japanese installed the Second Republic under President Jose P. Laurel as the enemy occupation of the Philippines continued up to the early part of 1945.

MARIANO N. CASTAÑEDA

-  1944

   In an effort to win the Filipino people over to their side, the Japanese Military Administration set up the Second Philippines Republic on October 14, 1943, with Jose P. Laurel as president. All the world knows that this was not a free, independent, and sovereign republic because it was controlled by the Japanese military, and the country remained occupied by the enemy. At any rate, the Japanese-sponsored Second Republic was a clear propaganda victory over the United States which, under the Tydings-McDuffie Act, had committed itself to recognize Philippine independence at the end of the 10-year transition period on July 4, 1946.
