Clubbing TV is supporting DJ Rebekah in her fight against rape, sexual assault and many other issues in the Dance Music Industry ! It's time to speak out!
Today, we, Clubbing TV, are supporting DJ Rebekah in her fight against rape, sexual assault, sexual harassment, unwanted attention, misogynistic, sexist obstructions, and many other issues taking place in the Dance Music Industry. We are supporting every single person in the music industry who is taking part in this fight. We are encouraging every brave soul who is going to stand for this. We are writing this post #ForTheMusic and for all of us.
There are already around 3 000 signatures in 2 weeks. A lot of actors in the music industry are gathering, but it is not enough. We invite you to participate. Whatever is your nationality, your gender, your color, your religion, your belief, your age, whether you are part of a minority or not. Every single one of you is called to help, to share, to talk about it, and to highlight these unavoidable problems we are facing today.
As Rebekah said: “In the last weeks we have seen our community divided. Willful ignorance, slut-shaming and mistrust of victims’ testimonies in the face of systematic and rampant abuse has left many of us questioning if those founding values of love and freedom that we all came for, have finally been lost to a status quo which allows for an abuse of power, which encourages it, glorifies it even. There are predators in OUR scene- and this must not be tolerated any longer.”
Each and every one of you can make a difference. Together we are stronger. Fight for what you think is right. Sign the petition, share it, tell a friend, act if you witness, make a change. It is time to speak out!
Do it #ForTheMusic pledge which:
– Ensures artists, employees, and audiences are protected against sexual harassment.
– Guarantees employees of the industry a safe workplace.
– Demands artists and performers to end the culture of silence, be allies, and to speak out when they witness sexual harassment happening
– Holds clubs accountable for ensuring a safe space for performers, employees, and audiences free from sexual harassment.
