August 22, 1977, the Curfew Imposed Under the Martial Law was Lifted

When the Philippines was placed under Martial Law through Proclamation No. 1081 on September 21, 1972, “appropriate control measures were adopted to achieve the objectives thereof, including the maintenance of a curfew.”

General order No. 61 states that “the degree of social and economic stability that the application of said control measures has achieved now, in turn, necessitates the relaxation of said control measures to meet new requirements, in keeping with the total government program on reform and development.”

Hence, On August 22, 1977, President Ferdinand Marcos ordered the lifting of curfew throughout the country, “except in such places where conditions warrant the continuation of curfew upon grounds of military necessity and national security and/or peace and order considerations.” The actual signing of the order though was on August 21, 1977.
