Volleybelles Join ABS-CBN’s Battle for Franchise Renewal
Volleyball stars are encouraging their fans and supporters to join a signature campaign started by the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines (NUJP), urging Congress to renew the ABS-CBN broadcasting franchise.
Among those who signed for the 1 million signature petition launched by NUJP via the petition site Change.org were Gretchen Ho, Chloe Cortez, Kyle Negrito and Carmela Tunay.
As of this writing, the said petition has garnered almost 150,000 signatures. To some personalities, the threats against ABS-CBN are also threats to their dreams.
But more than that, it is a threat to the press freedom.
I’ve been an ABS-CBN fan since I was a kid. I’ve seen many dreams come true because of the work that’s been done. Proud to be a #Kapamilya.
Please help us keep the network alive, as well as save jobs by signing this petition! https://t.co/vtFhJFxmn8
