Manila jeepney drivers call on mayor Isko to allow them back on the streets

Members of the Bacood-Stop and Shop-Quiapo Jeepney Drivers and Operators Association demonstrate Wednesday in front of Manila City Hall as they call on mayor Isko Moreno to allow them back on the streets for them to earn a living and feed their families. Amid the pandemic, however, jeepneys were taken out of the streets to prevent the spread of the coronavirus but drivers bewail the government’s indecision could also kill their families from hunger soon other than the dreaded Covid-19 disease.
