- (Reprint from NJ.Com, Jersey City) -

The polymath and patriot who fought for Filipino rights during the Spanish colonial era was honored at Rizal Park where Jersey City Mayor Jerremiah Healy and Councilmen Steven Fulop and Peter Brennan were knighted into the Order of the Knights of Rizal.

At the event, a wreath was laid in honor of Rizal, whose actual birthday is today, June 19.

Also, members of the Filipino community hosted a special birthday party for Rizal at City Hall, complete with traditional Filipino cuisine. They also staged a mock trial where Rizal was convicted of inciting revolution and sentenced to be executed.
