Description

Manila, 1603

The Spanish government saw the rapidly growing Manila-based Chinese community as a threat. Tensions in Manila grew until 1603 when the Chinese rose in an 18-day rebellion over a rumor that the Spaniards were planning to poison their water supply. More than 20,000 Chinese died in this first of several massacres at the hands of Spanish soldiers, Tagalog and Pampango volunteers. The massacres continued until the 19th century.
