Pedro Paterno - autonomist/traitor

1899 - During the Filipino-American War, Pedro Paterno and Felipe Buencamino, "autonomists" dubbed by Gen. Antonio Luna as traitors  to Philippine independence,  present to the invader North Americans their  "peace" proposals; on the same day, more than a year after the  imperialist United States invaded the fledgling Philippine  Republic, Gen. Arthur MacArthur, assigned to be the military 'ruler' of the Philippine Islands by the imperialist Uncle Sam, plays the propaganda game  by issuing an 'amnesty' decree to the native defenders  and calling  the rightful war staged by Filipinos as 'insurrection' against  the US.
