SALUNGGUHIT

By Flon Faurillo / Bulatlat

Net

Beleaguered by protests left and right against unjust economic impositions and calling for her removal from office, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo issued Feb. 24 the day the 20th anniversary of the EDSA I uprising that toppled the Marcos dictatorship was being commemorated Proclamation No. 1017 declaring the Philippines as being in a state of national emergency. It paved the way for crackdowns on government opponents as well as media agencies covering their activities and issues. Though the proclamation has been lifted, the government has admitted that the crackdown will continue.

Salungguhit literally means to underline; figuratively, to underscore or highlight.
