    The Kataastaasang, Kagalanggalangang Katipunan ng mga Anak ng Bayan or KKK or The Katipunan was a nationalistic secret society was founded to oust Spanish colonialism in the Philippines in 1892. From what I remember during my high school history classes which was some time ago, the KKK was influenced by the Propaganda Movement. However the difference was the KKK wanted to do so in more physical and violent means through armed revolution while the Propaganda Movement wanted to do so through peaceful means. It basically took the place of La Liga Filipina which was founded by Dr. Joese Rizal and Bonifacio was also a member of. After the arrest by leading members of La Liga, Bonifacio was convinced that peaceful reformation was futile and decided to take matters into his own hands, thus the KKK was born.
