42374243-5870-4F8A-A748-6791A25EDB8B.jpegMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The 1987 Philippine Constitution is crystal clear: the President may, in cases of invasion or rebellion, declare Martial in parts of, or, the entire country. 

When elements call for the “overthrow” of the governmennt, that constitutes rebellion.

Well, student activists at the University of the Philippines across the country have publicly called for such overthrow.  They even have a giant memo to show for their intention (see photo).

So today, Duterte signed a still unnumbered proclamation imposing Martial Law at all U.P. campuses nationwide.
