“Restaurants have reopened, airlines have been operating, places of worship have also been permitted to reopen.

“Let’s not even start to talk about all the videos that have surfaced of political rallies happening, clearly neglecting all safety precautions.

“Right now, we don’t see anything but a government that contributes little or nothing to its creative sector and continues to attempt to stifle the sector in every way.

“Thousands of people have been left without any way to earn for several months.

“The entertainment industry must be allowed to gradually get back in business!! Let’s start with cinemas reopening”
