SALUNGGUHIT

By Flon Faurillo / Bulatlat

Paper Lifting 

Amid widespread public outrage, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo announced March 3 the lifting of Proclamation No. 1017, which placed the country under a state of national emergency. The said proclamation led to intensified crackdowns on oppositionists and the media, greater aggression against the exercise of civil liberties, and the detention of a number of political leaders most notably Anakpawis (Toiling Masses) Rep. Crispin Beltran. The Anakpawis solon is still behind bars, while the crackdown on oppositionists and the media continues and suppression of civil liberties is sustained. This shows that the lifting of Proclamation No. 1017 was simply a paper lifting.

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