La Republica Filiina

On September 15, 1898, La Republica Filipina, an independent and nationalist newspaper founded by Pedro Paterno, was published in Mandaluyong.

La Republica Filipina hoped to achieve national unity under a democratic Philippine Republic. It ceased publication in early 1899.

Other nationalist newspapers came out, including La Independencia, which served as the mouthpiece of the Philippine Revolution, and El Heraldo dela Revolucion, which was General Emilio Aguinaldo's revolutionary government's official publication.

La Independencia, edited by General Antonio Luna, was first published on September 3, 1898 and it continued to appear daily until November 11, 1900.
