Defending press freedom

ABS-CBN supporters and employees light candles in front of the network’s compound in Quezon City on Friday, as they continue to call for its resumption of broadcast operations. The international organization World Broadcasting Unions urged the Philippine government on Wednesday in a statement to give ABS-CBN a franchise to "restore the free flow of information to Filipinos", especially as the country battles the COVID-19 pandemic.
