Angel Locsin joins fellow Kapamilyas at the “Caravan para sa Prangkisa” for ABS-CBN franchise renewal.






May 5, a cease and desist order was issued againts ABS-CBN because of its expired franchise. The network immediately complied with the order and goes off the air since. People, especially the employees and artists of the network have been long calling for the Congress to tackle the franchise renewal which finally happened last May 13.


Almost every week, ABS-CBN bosses face the congress for their plea of granting the network a franchise. It took them 12 hearings clearing all the allegations and proving that they are worthy of such. It has been a tough fight for the network and on July 10, their fate has been decided, they have been denied of the franchise with 70-11 votes in favor of the opposition.


ABS-CBN employees, their supporters and artists fought for the network until the last day. On the votation day, they gathered together for a caravan from ABS-CBN compound to the House of Representatives. They are doing this with the hopes of being heard.




Angel Locsin who has been very vocal of her support to her home network for more than a decade did not fail her colleagues who are counting on her. She showed up at the caravan with a plea “Give us a chance to be better” written on her banner.


It has surely been a long and tiring journey for ABS-CBN, its bosses and employees. They in fact set a record for having the most number of franchise hearings to date. They were able to clear all the alleged violations thrown at them but in the end, 70 representatives chose not to side with the network and its 11,000 employees.


It sure is a big set back for the people who have been relying to the network and we bleed with them, we are hoping that one day, we’ll see our favorite Kapamilya network on free TV over again.
