The famous and top Kapamilya stars suddenly became a rallyista to show their support for their home network.
Regardless of the heat of the sun, these ABS-CBN artists didn’t hesitate to stay on the street holding their placards.
Different statements, bigger and deeper meaning.
ABS-CBN supporters and workers, including celebrities, headed to Congress on Friday, July 10 to urge lawmakers to vote in favor of the renewal of ABS-CBN franchises.
At the gates of Batasang Pambansa, Piolo Pascual and Kathryn Bernardo were seen holding signs.
“Defend Press Freedom” and “Stand with ABS-CBN workers.”
Also present was actress Angel Locsin as part of a “solidarity caravan,” which began at the ABS-CBN complex and headed to the House complex in Batasan Hills, Quezon City.
Angel, who starred recently in the ABS-CBN teleserye The General ‘s Daughter, was seen holding a sign that reads “Give us a chance to be better.”
Wildflower actor RK Bagatsing and Sandugo star Elisse Joson held up a sign that said “Kapamilya Forever.”
Vice Ganda on the other hand, was seen standing on a jeep holding a sign that says, “Para Sa Inyo To Madlang Pipol.” While roving around the streets.
Accompanied by her non-showbiz partner Luis Garcia, a Soldier’s Heart actress Nikki Valdez also headed for the demonstration. Wearing special masks reading “Kapamilya Forever.”
Host Bianca Gonzalez also entered the caravan for unity. Adding red, blue, and green streamers (the iconic colors of ABS-CBN) to her car.
Magandang Buhay hosts Momshie Karla Estrada, Melai Cantiveros and Jolina Magdangal are also present on the caravan.
After 12 hearings, the House Committee on Legislative Franchises voted against the bill seeking to grant the embattled media giant a franchise.
This is indeed a very sad day for our Kapamilya. Let’s just wait and hope for the best to come.
