Spanish Colonization: 1567-1923
From 1567-1923, Spanish settlers began colonizing the island(s) of Summik and the bigger island Sakaria. This colonization of the spanish was known to be very brutal, corrupt and unfair as most pure Sakarian blood people were known to be discriminated and abused by the Government and what was known as the 'Padre Del Plomo' which were priests in the Churches which sometimes had more power then the government and abused their power to abuse citizens and to take more money for their wealth. This situation was similar to its neighboring country; Philippines who at that time was also colonized by the Spaniards.
People were often accused wrongly and executed in public areas or what was known as 'Plaza Central' infront of hundreds of people. Corruption was very apparent with examples of farmers forced to give kilograms of harvest to the government without pay and then the government would resell it for a higher price. People were often wrongly accused for doing things such as murder, stealing or assaulting.
Freedom of speech was very limited as people who spoke against the issues of the government or the 'Padre Del Plomo' were executed or abused.
Views of Spanish to Sakarians from the government were not equal, Spanish people or 'Peninsulares' were seen as smarter, good mannered or richer while the regular Sakarian citizens or 'Verdedaro' were seen as poor or uneducated.
Execution of Akayi Alifonso Santiago Y De la Cruz : 1920
In 1920, a Sakarian priest named 'Akayi Alifonso Santiago Y De La Cruz' or commonly known as 'Akayi Santiago' was publicly executed using the garote method in the 'Plaza de Okurada' (Okurada Plaza), the execution was witnessed by thousands of people (including his family and friends).
The reason why as to he was executed was because he was wrongfully accused of protesting and talking bad about the government, he was also accused of helping Ayarankein Braew carry out a revolution (which happened a few years after his death) and kill Padre Del Plomo; 'Juan Martiago Sanchez' (who was the highest amongst all Padre's at that time).
Before his death, his final words were:'Cuando llegue el amanecer, dime si Sakaria ha sido liberada de este dolor, avaricia, tristeza, corrupción y abuso. Ese día es cuando volveré a levantarme para ver cuán maravillosos, magníficos, fuertes, inteligentes y valientes pueden ser los sacarianos y desafiar a todos aquellos que les impiden tener libertad. Adiós y nos vemos cuando el sol brille sobre toda esta nación.'
('When the sunrise comes, tell me if Sakaria has been freed from this pain, greed, sorrow, corruption and abuse. That day is when I will rise again to see how wonderful, magnificent, strong, smart and brave Sakarians can be and defy all those who stop them from having freedom. Bye and see you again when the sun will shine over this whole nation.')
After saying this, a civil guard shouted
'Deja de tonterías, ejecútalo como!' (Stop this nonsense, execute him now!) in which afterwards he was killed and his body was thrown out in a field.
This execution is what many historians and people say was the rise of the Sakarian revolution and hatred against the Spanish.
