De La Salle University was clad in red, green, and blue last Tuesday night "in solidarity" with ABS-CBN.

Red, green, and blue are the colors of the Philippines' biggest network.

The Taft-based school also called on the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) to grant provisional authority so that ABS-CBN could continue its operations.

This, after the NTC ordered the media organization to cease and desist from broadcasting on television and radio.

Last Monday, ABS-CBN's franchise expired as the House of Representatives was yet to tackle the bill for its renewal.

A day later, the NTC then backtracked on its earlier commitment to grant provisional authority and as such, the country's top broadcaster was forced to go off the air.

Nonetheless, ABS-CBN has vowed to remain true to its vision and mission. "Sa gitna ng pagsubok na ito, mananatili kaming tapat sa aming sinumpaang tungkulin bilang mga lingkod ng bawat Pilipino," President and CEO Carlo Katigbak said.
