There was a proposal for this blackout to occur on English Wikipedia for readers the Philippines.  Did that get closed?

Tagalog only accounts for 3.7% of readership from the Philippines.

Are other websites blacking out in the Philippines?

The Tagalog Wikipedia community is considering a blackout in protest of the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012. Here is an English translation of the notice:

NOTE: Please encourage all the community to join Wikipediang Tagalog talk about the proposed pagsasansala (blackout) of Wikipediang Tagalog against Republic Act No. 10175, or the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012. Please participate in the ongoing conversation in the Cafe. Thank you.
