Baron Geisler Gives Message To Pres. Duterte, Congress About ABS-CBN Franchise Issue
ABS-CBN FRANCHISE ISSUE – Kapamilya actor Baron Geisler appealed to President Rodrigo Duterte and the congress to renew ABS-CBN franchise.
The ABS-CBN network which is led by the Lopez family is currently having an issue regarding the renewal of its franchise which will expire next year March 2020.
President Rodrigo Roa Duterte criticized the network for allegedly not showing his 2016 campaign that he paid.
In a previous article, actor Robin Padilla negotiated with the 74-year-old chief executive regarding the ABS-CBN franchise issue.
The video of Baron Geisler was shared on the Facebook Page of Defend Job Philippines. The actor said the government must move on to the “miscommunication” in 2016. He said lots of people will lose their jobs if the President won’t sign the bill granting its fresh franchise.
“Lahat tayo ay umibig, nasaktan, napasaya, napa-iyak ng mga shows ng ABS-CBN. Hindi ito magagawa kung hindi dahil sa mga laborers na ito. Ipaglaban natin ang karapatan nila. Ipaglaban po natin ang buhay nila. Mahigit 10,000 po ang mawawalan ng trabaho. Isipin niyo po iyon,” he said.
Baron Geisler also asked the netizens to support their appeal to the government so that they may continue giving entertainment to all the Filipino people.
“Kung talagang nagmamalasakit ang gobyerno sa atin at sa mga laborers na ito. Tulungan niyo naman kami. Hindi kami nagmamakaawa kasi alam naming na karapatan naming na magserbisyo at magtrabaho at kumita para mapasaya ang mga tao at mga taga-gobyerno…”
“Lumaki ang ABS-CBN… 65 years niyo na pong kasama [tapos] tatanggalin niyo?” he added.
Baron’s message to the president and the congress elicited mixed reactions from the netizens. Here are some of their comments on the post:
@Jay-r Cajolo: “10k lang kayo, Pero Million n tao yung niloloko ng network nyo.”
@Bono Akio: “It’s about sustainability. Ika nga no one should be left behind. Agree with Baron… The government can do better than this. I take a leap of faith.”
@Aljon Gante Balinon: “Disappointed ako sayo baron”
