State of siege

Situation in which the freedoms and rights of citizens are suspended and the military forces are mobilized and ready. The state of siege is decreed when the internal security of the country, or of a region, is under threat of immediate risk, as in the case of a major insurrection or rebellion. Under these conditions, the military authorities are given more powers and duties, and are now dealing with matters normally assigned to civilian authorities. Sometimes, however, the state of siege is decreed only because the government intends to stifle the opposition and concentrate more powers in its hands.
