What should you do in case you get arrested or harassed

In order for us to know and understand our basic rights in these troubled times of our democracy, the Free Legal Assistance Group (FLAG) has updated its primer, "Know Your Rights!" to help the public in times like this.

The primer talks about the powers the President may employ under an emergency situation, the nature of lawful and unlawful arrests, and some guidelines on what one should do once he or gets arrested, among other things.

Check out the group's post.

You could download a PDF version of the primer here or here.

Aside from offering the FLAG primer, the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines has also listed some similar tips in its blog.
