Discussion on the blackout has been suspended pending a final decision of the Supreme
Court: a 120-day temporary restraining order was issued in September against the law.
It seems that there's relatively broad-based support from editors in the Philippines,
with a few opposes, but the discussion is still open if people want to join in.

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?

Subject: [Advocacy Advisors] Tagalog Wikipedia considering protest against the Cybercrime
Prevention Act of 2012
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.
