Politically and socially outspoken trio Fever 333 have announced details of what they’re calling a livestream demonstration this evening (June 3rd 2020) online for all to view.
Named ‘Long Live The Innocent’, the livestream comes in the midst of a large number of protests in many parts of the world in response to the injustice of the recent death of George Floyd, who was killed by asphyxiation when an officer pressed his knee on Floyd’s neck for approximately nine minutes whilst handcuffed and restrained on the ground.
This is what frontman Jason Aalon Butler had to say of the idea behind the livestream.
“This is a concentrated effort to encourage people to go beyond awareness and take action. With localized efforts in the name of justice for a specifically targeted group of people in this country, this will serve as an artistic activation as well as a platform to activate necessary measures for social and racial reformation.
The advantages we predict we will see if crossing demographics musically in preset to proliferate a message that MUST find its way over the barriers of genre. Music and art have served as the catalyst for socially inclined movements for as long as we can remember, but for some reason, at a time where we are now granted the ability to see how deeply flawed our system is, we have slowed the charge for change. FEVER 333 has dedicated its entire platform to that change from its inception with its music, activism, even its own charity fund that sees a percentage of proceeds funneled from all profits the project receives. This is not a marketing method this is a tool for change. Please consider widening this message for the people with FEVER 333 by joining us in this effort.”
The livestream begins today from 3:00PM (PST)/11:00PM (GMT) and can be streamed below.
All proceeds from the stream will benefit Black Lives Matter and the Minnesota Freedom Fund.
