Hundreds of supporters, employees, religious groups, party-list and ordinary citizens gather in front of shuttered ABS-CBN network at its main headquarters in Sgt. Esguerra Ave. Quezon City Tuesday, 21 July 2020.

Actress Angel Locsin, one of several die-hard ABS-CBN stars, was spotted in the middle of Tuesday’s mass protest.

Now on their eighth straight day of concerted action, the demonstrators continue to protest Congress’ denial of the television network to get a fresh new 25-year franchise, displacing them too off their once lucrative jobs in the process.

Citing various violations on its franchise contract and other technicalities, lawmakers voted ABS-CBN out from getting a new franchise, 70-11.
