The Katipunan was born of an idea; The idea that the Filipino people could live free. An idea forged in blood among brothers set ablaze by the thirst for freedom An idea that spread in secret and exploded in indignant revolt. A single idea That gave birth to many heroes Gave life to a nurturing motherland And gave rise to an indomitable people. It was an idea that started a revolution - An idea that shaped our history forever. The Katipunan was a true testament to the power of ideas To a tiny spark’s power to start great fires To an ideal’s power to stop even the deadliest of tanks Today, the spirit of the Katipunan comes alive once more. We invite you back to the birthplace of revolutions To listen to new voices with new things to say To set new spirits on fire To open up new perspectives And inspire new dreams We rekindle the fire of the Katipunan With new revolutionaries Facing new challenges Facing them head-on with their ideas Ideas that are worth spreading. We invite you to Katipunan To witness new revolutions. Welcome to TEDxKatipunanAve.
