La Liga Filipina & Exile to Dapitan
The making of the La Liga Filipina was the solution that Rizal thought of to stop the oppression of the Filipinos against the Spaniards. This aims to protect the Filipino people, to avoid the abuse of the Spaniards and most especially to unite the Filipinos. Rizal hopes that in creating the La Liga Filipina, it would put a stop to the abusive Spanish rule.  In the time that the La Liga Filipina was already created, he was already thrown in Dapitan because of some charges such as the one responsible for the two novels, Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo, which was obviously against the Spanish rule and was also blamed being the leader of the Katipunan. He then won the lottery and was able to buy a land near the Talisay shore. He and his love interest, Josephine Bracken, also got married. They had a child but sadly died. During these times, one of Rizal’s views was the importance of education. He strongly believed that education would be the solution to put a stop to the injustice of the Spanish rule.

Rizal organized La Liga Filipina, a secret organization, on July 3 1892. It aimed to change the way the government was run in a peaceful way. In July 7, 1892, less than a week after the La Liga was organized, Captain General Despujol ordered Rizal's exile to Dapitan, on suspicion of his involvement in rebellion. In Dapitan, he opened a school with fourteen(14) pupils. On December 29, 1896, he wrote the Last Farewell, and was executed in Bagumbayan (now Luneta) the next day.
