MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The 1987 Philippine Constitution is clear clear: the President may, in cases of advance or rebellion, announce Martial in tools of, or, the whole country.
When elements call for the “overthrow” of the governmennt, that constitutes rebellion.
Well, tyro activists at the University of the Philippines opposite the country have publicly called for such overthrow. They even have a hulk memo to show for their goal (see photo).
So today, Duterte sealed a still unnumbered commercial commanding Martial Law at all U.P. campuses nationwide.
