"Fagen served in the 24th Regiment of the U.S. Army, but in November 1899 defected to the Filipino army. He became a successful guerrilla leader and his capture became an obsession to the U.S. military and American public. His defection was likely the result of differential treatment by American occupational forces toward black soldiers, as well as common American forces derogatory treatment and views of the Filipino occupational resistance, who were frequently referred to as "niggers" in a seemingly inverse code-switching of the term at the time by white American forces."


Your lies end our lives
Our hands meet your demands
Your wealth grows as we decline

At your beck and call
Your profit at the cost of all
Fear keeps everyone in line

This system of exploitation
Is headed towards evisceration
Relief from our suffering and pain

The people are unafraid
They have everything to gain
They have nothing to lose but their chains

We are your servants no more
We won’t fight your white man’s war

The master’s house will be dismantled
The old society left in shambles

Protracted People’s War
Two Stage Revolution
From the countryside to the cities
This will be the solution
