Micasa Asks SA Government To Secure Black Lives In South Africa. The passing away of the late George Floyd in the United States of America has caused a stir around the world.
The passing away of the late George Floyd in the United States of America has caused a stir around the world. This has also made way for South Africans to see the people of colour in the country that were allegedly killed by the South African National Defence Force and the South African Police Service during lockdown. Micasa has asked the South African government to protect black lives in the country.
The music band laid out their frustration in regards to the passing away, while naming the ones that passed away in South Africa. The names included people such as Collins Khosa from Alexandra, Petrus Miggels, Sibusiso Amos and Adane Emmanuel. The group wrote a message in support of ‘Black Lives Matter’. “Having a voice comes with responsibility of knowing the power behind that. Although we can’t physically do much right now, we can bring things to the light. These names you see here are not just names, these are people killed by those we’ve entrusted to protect us,” says Micasa.
The music group went on to say, “To the leaders of our country-stand, speak up and take action. This cannot continue. We have so much to lose if we break the unity we have so long worked to build.” The group say human greed is killing the species. “Classism is hurting us. The desire for superiority. We are species that needs some serious introspection.”
