SALUNGGUHIT

Shadow of the Past 

Facing continuous protest actions in the wake of the killing of the impeachment complaints against her at the House of Representatives, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo is again raising the bogey of “destabilization” against her opponents. She has used this to justify a “strict” implementation of the “no permit, no rally” policy. At the same time state forces are again on a rampage, with no less than four political killings reported by human rights groups over the last month alone. This combination is reminiscent of Martial Law, the 33rd anniversary of which was commemorated last Sept. 21.
