Emergency/Martial Law in the Philippines. All rallies

with violent dispersal. Six progressive
congresspeople including GABRIELA Women's Party Liza

are under threat; warrants have been issued for their
leaders. Media organizations have been "cautioned,"
and at least one - The Daily Tribune - has been
closed.
