The Country Under 1017

With all the funfare about the supposed to be Coup last week, the President placed the entire country under a State of Emergency (Proclamation 1017) — sounds familiar, especially to those who are already alive when Martial Law was declared by Marcos.

Some luminaries and known Arroyo critics had already been arrested since Friday, including Prof. Randy David.

Over the weekend, the Palace also asked the media (TV, Radio, and Print) not to cover events that may spark the masses ideology.

Yesterday, the Daily Tribune has been placed under the control of the government, citing reasons that the paper promotes ideas for the public clamor to go against with the government.

My question now is this: When will the government start censorship of the internet, the Pinoy Bloggers in particular? When will this stupidity end?
