Example text

In 1945, in exchange for desperately needed American assistance, a reluctant Philippine Congress accepted the terms of the Bell Trade Regulations Act, which gave American citizens “parity rights” with Filipinos for the ownership and exploitation of all Philippine natural resources.  Thus, when independence was formerly granted on July 4, 1946, not all was well in the newly freed nation.  More ominously, significant imbalances between rich and poor remained.  The party soon attracted the Page 20 allegiance of a new generation of activists, students, and a few remaining leaders of the old Huk movement.
