KKK document signed by  Bonifacio

1896 - The Supreme Council of the Philippine secret   society-turned-revolutionary-government Kataastaasang, Kagalanggalangang Katipunan nang manga Anak nang Bayan (KKK), rules that Balangay Mahiganti, a KKK branch in Ermita, Manila, be elevated to the status of a Sangguniang Bayan (Sb.); Andres Bonifacio y de Castro, as the Katipunan's Supreme President, discusses the  newly elected officers' duties, subsequently explaining why the Katipunan's Supreme Assembly has decided to require all KKK sections to remit fees paid by new members and those promoted to a higher grade to the Supreme Council; the decision comes less than six months before the Katipunan transforms itself into a revolutionary government and prematurely launches the valiant Philippine Revolution against Spain under the leadership of Bonifacio following discovery of the society's existence by the colonial authorities; the KKK was founded by Bonifacio, et al., in July 1892 after patriot and reformist Jose P. Rizal was ordered arrested by the hated Spanish authorities.
