In accordance with his declaration of Martial Law, President Marcos signed General Order No. 4, imposing nightly curfew for all Filipinos from 12am to 4am with the justification of preventing “wanton destruction of lives and property, widespread lawlessness and anarchy, and chaos and disorder.” People who are found outside their homes after curfew will be summarily arrested with possible detention in military camps. This curfew would not be lifted until August 1977, almost five years later.
