In a now deleted post ANOHNI said that Brexit is an opportunity for the rich to get richer while the poor struggle to survive
ANOHNI has penned an essay discussing Britain’s recent decision to leave the European Union. The singer has said that she believes the decisions will only serve wealthy people, nationalists and racists.
“Brexit is not the wisdom of the poor at work; it is a prison riot, and those with the keys always win. The legitimate frustrations propelling poor and working class people to vote “leave” are not going to subside as a result of this catastrophe. It is exactly during the cover of a crisis such as Brexit that the richest get even richer and bury their spoils in some far away land, while the poor eat each other’s faces,” She writes, “People haven’t lost their jobs and securities over the last 30 years because of the EU. They have lost them for the same reason that they have lost them in US, because legislation protecting the interests of the majority of people has been cruelly and systematically thinned, while a corrupt mogul media, wearing the lambskin of the poor, advocates for the stinking rich exactly by misleading and manipulating working class minds and votes.”
She goes on to discuss the idea that Brexit will allow multinational corporations to exercise more power over the UK and the United States role in the referendum. “The EU is… the only international governing body capable of having any significant influence over the United States and its actions. We forfeit a seat at the table of those conversations with volatile power at our own peril.” She says, “Brexit is the latest casualty in 25 years of United States’ criminal foreign policy, lack of accountability, and grotesque international negligence. Until the world perceives justice has been done, no balance can ever be restored. When will those responsible be held to account?”
The statement is just the latest in a long line of musicians who have taken to social media to speak out against the vote.
