As we all know by now, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has declared Martial Law on the province of Maguindanao while we all are hoping that her father's soul, former President Diosdado Macapagal, is not turning on his grave nor wishing to be dead once again.
Straight from Inquirer.net is the full text of PGMA's report on the declaration of Martial Law, sent thru her secretary Eduardo Ermita - same as what she did on the proclamation, she sent Ermita to do the dirty work, so it will not be herself on the history books nor on the file videos of new networks. Duh.

Anyway, on other issues aside from Martial Law, the government has issued some guidelines on the implementation or enforcement of the said thing, as can be seen here, and Manuel Quezon III said they may have just taken those from old files way back 1972. So resourceful, don't you think?
Just for fun, here are the videos of both declarations:
