President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo has just declared the Philippines under a State of National Emergency. This is after the government has just foiled another coup attempt by some top-ranking officials in the AFP to topple the government early this morning. Meanwhile, militant activists are on their way to the EDSA shrine to “commemorate the EDSA 1 Anniversary”. This is despite the announcement this morning that all rally permits were cancelled. If you are like me who are still stuck in the office, you can monitor the developments via the eradioportal where you can listen to live feedcasts from various radio stations.
