Angel Locsin, Nanawagan na Pakawalan ang 6 na Jeepney Drivers na Arestado

Published

on

On June 3, six jeepney drivers were arrested after rallying on the streets. The drivers were asking for financial aid from the government, after being jobless throughout the community quarantine in Metro Manila. However, instead of receiving support and assistance, the six jeepney drivers who took to the streets were jailed and will be facing charges.

Authorities claimed that the drivers violated the community quarantine rules by protesting on the streets. Their arrest caused an outcry on social media, especially since some high-ranking politicians also violated the quarantine, like General Debold Sinas. But unlike the drivers, Sinas is still walking scot-free.

In this situation, the true victims are not just the arrested drivers, but their families as well. Without the breadwinners, who will provide for their families’ daily needs? For this reason, Kapamilya actress Angel Locsin appealed to the hearts of the people on social media.

The award-winning actress used Twitter in order to make her voice heard. Angel asked people in a position to ‘be considerate’ of the drivers’ situation, citing that they only protested because they were desperate for help. Moreover, Angel also claimed that without these drivers, their families will surely go hungry.

“Please, if you cannot help them, let them go home. They just want food for their families. Maraming gutom. Sabihin na nating may natanggap pero hindi natin alam kung enough na ba yun para sa pamilya nila para mapilitan silang lumabas. Konting puso and consideration.”

Meanwhile, to fight their case, a licensed lawyer who’s also the daughter of a jeepney driver pledged to help the six drivers, more popularly known as PISTON 6. The lawyer is also a top-notcher during the 2019 bar exam.

It has been a month since the Kapamilya network went off air. On May 5, the largest broadcast network in the Philippines went off air following a cease-and-desist order from the National Telecommunications Network. The NTC and Solicitor General Jose Calida cited the Kapamilya network’s lack of franchise to continue operate.

Since then, the Kapamilya network has been appealing in order to get their operations back and working. For a month, all of their operations on television and radio were halted. Tapings were put on hold, and 11,000 of ABS-CBN’s employees were uncertain of their future.

Ever since ABS-CBN has gone off air, the network channel’s screen was pitch black. For the avid fans of the Kapamilya network, this served as a reminder that free speech has been stifled by the administration. But earlier this week, it seems like there’s a light at the end of the tunnel with this recent development.

In a report from Philippine Entertainment Portal, it was stated that ABS-CN’s screen is now showing the network’s logo. And while there is still no news about the network’s franchise, ABS-CBN loyalists claim that their logo is a sign of their comeback.

On the other hand, the ABS-CBN executives and artists are still continuing their fight in order to get their network back in business once again. On June 3, their fight for the franchise renewal is still ongoing in the congress hearing.

Many artists and fans are also campaigning for the network’s franchise renewal. Among those who showed support for their home network are Angel Locsin, Coco Martin, Kim Chiu, Ogie and Regine Alcasid, Liza Soberano, Kathryn Bernardo, and many more.

Single Mother na COVID Survivor, Pinalayas ng Walang-Pusong Landlady

Published

Amid the community quarantine in Metro Manila, President Rodrigo Duterte urged rentees to allow the moratorium to their tenants. During the COVID-19 crisis, many people were left unemployed, which is why most of them couldn’t pay their bills as well. Among them is this single mother who is struggling to pay their rent during the coronavirus outbreak in the Philippines.

GMA News reported the sticky situation of Mary Glen Dosal, a single mother who is renting an apartment in Barangay Batasan Hills, Quezon City. Aside from being jobless due to the pandemic, Dosal was also infected with COVID-19. However, after recovering, she also had to deal with her nagging landlady.

In a video, we can see Dosal and her landlady’s heated exchange. The landlady was forcing her to pay her Php 7,000 rent and leave on June 15. According to the landlady, it has been two months since Dosal paid her rent. Even though she just came back from the hospital, the landlady wasted no time in nagging her.

In order to avoid more conflicts, the single mom and her three kids decided to leave the home for good. The barangay officials helped mediate between Dosal and her landlady and asked Dosal to find another place instead. To ease her burden, the barangay officials asked her to not pay the rent.

“Kung maririnig mo’yung sobrang sakit na pati personal na buhay ko nadadamay kasi naririnig ng mga anak ko e. Wala na po akong trabaho. Galing pa ako sa sakit, may tatlo pa akong anak, single mother po ako. Sa’n po ako kukuha?” Says Dosal, who was teary-eyed during her interview.

On the other hand, the Department of Trade and Industry, amid the coronavirus pandemic, lessors cannot evict their tenants or forced them to pay missed rents. Under the law, they shall be given a 30-day grace period until they are finally able to resume their livelihood.
