Reacciones del Rock y Metal por la muerte de George Floyd

Por Karina Báez O.

La repercusión a nivel mundial por la muerte de George Floyd a manos de un policía en Mineápolis, Estados Unidos ha desatado una ola de manifestaciones y protestas en contra el racismo, xenofobia y los abusos policiales que viven las minorías raciales en el mundo.

Claramente la música no podría quedar al margen de comentarios y impresiones sobre el acontecer mundial y hemos querido rescatar algunos de los mensajes de músicos del metal y el rock de todo el mundo.

The fact that it took this long, and people had to resort to protesting and rioting in order to get some semblance of justice… is disgusting. It is the year 2020. We have to change as a human race. We need new leadership that will encourage and inspire unity and equality instead of division and violence. We as individuals need to practice kindness and love, not selfishness and hate. We are all living on this globe together. Treat others as you’d want to be treated and help where you can instead of hurt. And if you get your panties in a twist over the notion of LOVING ONE ANOTHER…then YOU are part of the problem. Let’s draw a hard line NOW! Out with the old dinosaur mentalities, and let’s start brand new, with new eyes to view the world as John Lennon imagined it. “Imagine there's no heaven It's easy if you try No hell below us Above us only sky Imagine all the people living for today Imagine there's no countries It isn't hard to do Nothing to kill or die for And no religion too Imagine all the people living life in peace, you You may say I'm a dreamer But I'm not the only one I hope some day you'll join us And the world will be as one Imagine no possessions I wonder if you can No need for greed or hunger A brotherhood of man Imagine all the people sharing all the world, you You may say I'm a dreamer But I'm not the only one I hope some day you'll join us And the world will be as one”
