The 1872 Cavite mutiny was anticipated by removing long-standing personal benefits to the workers, exacting personal taxes from the Filipino labourers, and requiring them to perform forced labour like ordinary subjects.
Izquierdo replaced governor-general Carlos Maria de la Torres some months before 1871, immediately rescinded Torres's liberal measures, and ad imposed his iron-fist rule. He was in the office for two years, but people will remember him for his cruelty to the Filipino and the martyr priests. The mutineers seized the fort and killed the Spanish officers. Fearing a general uprising, the Spanish government sent a regiment under general to recover the port.
It was said that mutineers got their cue from manila when they saw and heard fireworks across the manila bay, which was a celebration of the feast f the lady o Loreto. When the archbishop and the priest refused to cooperate, the Spanish court-martial on February 15 went ahead and maliciously found the three fathers guilty of treason for investigating the Cavite.
Two days later, the priests were put to death in Luneta. Once the fort was back under Spanish control, ignores ordered all Cavite mutineers to be executed.
Dr. Pardo de Tavera, a Filipino scholar, and researcher wrote the Filipino version of the bloody incident in Cavite. In his view, the incidence was a mere mutiny by the native Filipino soldiers and labourers of the Cavite arsenal. They turned out to be dissatisfied with the abolition of their privileges. On January 20 1872about 200 men comprised of soldiers, labourers of the arsenal, and Cavite-headed sergeant residents rose in arms and assassinated the commanding officer and Spanish officers insight. The insurgent was expecting support from the army, but that did not happen. After two days, the mutiny was declared subdued.
Tavera believed that the Spanish friars and Izquierdo used the Cavite mutiny as a powerful lever by magnifying it as a full-blown. A conspiracy involving not only the native army but also included residents of Cavite and manila, more importantly, the native clergy to overthrow the Spanish government in the Philippines.
The central government of Spain welcomed an educational decree authored by Moret promoted the fusion of sectarian schools run by the friars into a school called the Philippine institute. The friars, fearing their influence in the Philippines world is a thing of the past, took advantage of the incident.
