Angel Locsin’s stance on ABS-CBN Closure: “Hindi ako uupo at mananahimik”

Earlier this afternoon, National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) orders ABS-CBN to halt its broadcast operations following the expiration of its franchise. This means that more than 11,000 employees of ABS-CBN and its subsidiaries will lose their source of income and it was rather heartbreaking as this shutdown of the Philippines’ biggest broadcast network comes at worst possible time amid pandemic.

Amongst many personalities who spoke up against the government order to close ABS-CBN's broadcast operations, Philanthropic actress Angel Locsin also disapproves of the decision as it will cost even more Filipinos their livelihood. “Hindi ako uupo at mananahimik,” she said on her Instagram story.

On her Instagram feed, she also posted an animated emoji embracing the ABS-CBN logo and wrote:

Para sa kapwa. 
Sa panahon na kailangan ng hanap buhay ng mga tao. Let’s be considerate and ask ourselves kung makakatulong ba ang mga desisyon natin sa lalo na sa panahong ito. 
To ABS-CBN, isang karangalan po na naging bahagi at nakasama ko po kayo. Mahal ko kayo

Para sa #MalayangPamamahayag 

On another post, the actress also said:

May 5, 2020. 
Araw na hindi malilimutan. 
Isang mahigpit na akap sa mga mahal ko sa ABS-CBN. 
mahigit 11,000 ang hindi makakatulog ngayong gabi 💔 

The law has to be followed but more than that,  it should protect its people - that includes their jobs that provides food on their table most especially in this already trying time due to the coronavirus pandemic.
