State of emergency, I'd presume.
Marshall law is something similar, isn't it?

Avoiding confusion & misunderstanding:

"Marshall Law" = an Australian television series.

The homophone "martial law" = military rule by military authorities on an emergency basis.

Angelique, is correct, "estado se sitio" imposed by the military in emergency situations.

Estará relacionado con sitiar en el sentido de rodear una ciudad de tropas para que ni entre comida ni salga la gente, ¿verdad?
