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.

That being said, they were extremely worried when April Boy was rushed to a hospital in Antipolo. According to JC, they arrived at 4:00 pm but it took the hospital more than two hours to admit them. By that time, the singer was already so weak that he needed a nebulizer to help him breathe.

His scheduled dialysis did not push through because the hospital claimed there was another patient in need of dialysis. A few hours later, April Boy’s condition worsened until his body finally gave up.

“Lumobo yung tiyan niya, masakit daw kanina tiyan niya tapos tinurukan ng gamot sa tiyan. Maya-maya umano na yung dila niya, lumobo yung tiyan. Nakikiusap ako na idialysis na,” said Madelyn, the singer’s wife. According to Madelyn, the dialysis would surely make a difference in the singer’s condition.

Because of these revelation, many people can’t help but think that there was some negligence in the hospital’s part. As of now, the singer’s remains are interred at his restobar in Marikina City. Fans are still waiting for the update about his funeral.

On Instagram, Taberna recently shared that his daughter agreed to shave her head. One of the side effects of chemotherapy is hair loss, so Zoey opt to just shave her hair altogether. According to the news anchor, he still cries everytime he watches the video of his daughter shaving her head.

“Nung pumayag si Zoey na magpakalbo at nalaman kong pumunta na sa ospital ang misis ko kasama si Ate Tet, umalis muna ako. Akala ko ay malakas na ako. Marupok pala. May video habang kinakalbo si Zoey. At tuwing makikita ko iyon, hindi ko mapigil ang pagpatak ng aking luha,” wrote the anchor on Instagram.

Aside from Taberna, Rossel and her sister, Helga, also looks after Zoey. In spite of the challenges they are facing, the couple is not losing any hope. In addition to that, he also explained that he admires Zoey’s courage.

“Nakangiti siya pero alam kong durog na durog ang puso niya nu’ng nag-umpisang malagas ang kaniyang buhok dahil sa chemotherapy. Ang wala o maikling buhok ang isa sa dahilan ng insecurity ni Zoey. Pero nu’ng makita kong ipinost niya, nagpaalam ako na ipo-post ko rin. Hanga ako sa tapang ng aming panganay.”
