Why is this important? What is the historical context?[edit]

The article needs a section (from someone more knowledgeable than I) about the historical context of the Cry. What led up to it? What were the immediate causes? What were the immediate and long-term impacts? Obviously it is very important because it is a national holiday, and so this article should tell readers why it is so important and what is its meaning to current-day Filipinos. --Bruce Hall (talk) 00:52, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

From the article: "the Cry of Balintawak (Filipino: Sigaw ng Balintawak, Spanish: Grito de Balintawak) was the beginning of the Philippine Revolution against Spanish rule". That pretty much sums it up. –HTD 02:06, 29 August 2011 (UTC)
This article definitely needs more context for those with limited knowledge of Philippine history.--Iloilo Wanderer (talk) 07:26, 12 August 2013 (UTC)

Cry of Balintawak?[edit]

Is "Cry of Pugad Lawin" or "Cry of Balintawak" more consistent with WP:Commonname? I almost always hear of it referred to as the latter and would support renaming it. Google searches are not definitive but I note that the latter has 30% more Google hits than the former, and much of the reference to the former name says something like "now known as the 'Cry of Pugad Lawin'" which would indicate that the Cry of Balintawak is the more common reference. --Iloilo Wanderer (talk) 07:33, 12 August 2013 (UTC)
