Show of support for ABS-CBN

A large crowd of ABS-CBN supporters and employees gather at the network’s headquarters in Quezon City on Saturday, as they gear up for a candle lighting ceremony and noise barrage calling for the resumption of operations after it was denied a fresh franchise by the House committee on legislative franchises. House Deputy Speaker Luis Raymund "LRay" Villafuerte, one of the 70 lawmakers who voted against the franchise, said if the lawmakers who denied ABS-CBN's license bid are re-elected in 2022 and the network re-applies under the leadership of the same executives, "they might experience the same scenario where they will be again denied.”
