STOP STICKY FINGERS FROM PERFORMING IN SOUTH AFRICA
Knowledge is our greatest ally.
Spurred by the #MeToo #TimesUp #BlackLivesMatter and countless other movements, the abused, oppressed and disenfranchised are finding their voice and banding together to fight for their right to better representation, visibility and inclusion but most importantly, safety.
music festival, Rocking The Daisies made a groundbreaking move in
South Africa recently with the creation of a "Ladies Camp" at their forthcoming event. This is a camping area that aims to provide a safe space for
all women and women-identifying individuals to seek refuge throughout
However, this forward-thinking move has unfortunately been overshadowed by their decision to book a band from Australia called Sticky Fingers. The frontman of this band, Dylan Frost, has been involved in countless incidences of racism, aggression and abusive behaviour towards womxn. In light of these allegations, festivals around the world have cancelled their upcoming performances, the band has been blacklisted by Triple J in Australia and multiple feature articles have been written about why promoters cannot be complicit in booking and supporting this band.
This petition is a call for awareness about this band and their frontman, and to appeal to Rocking The Daisies to remove them both from the main festival and from headlining a second event in Johannesburg on the same weekend.
sign the petition and share it with those who will do the same.
