Against The Erasure of Migrant Communities and Their Stories from ROAR, a CNA Documentary

This petition is drawn up in support of Migrants Band Singapore. The band was to be featured on CNA's musical documentary, ROAR, for their collaboration with the musician, Subhas Nair. As a result of removing Subhas from the documentary, it is likely that the stories of Migrants Band Singapore will also be silenced. The documentary is set to air on 3rd and 4th of August 2019.

Featuring Migrants Band Singapore in a documentary about music making and performance lifts up a community that lives on the margins of society, and brings their talents and voices to a larger platform.

Erasing the narrative of migrant communities from the documentary sends the message that their stories do not matter, and that they are disposable. Their stories need to be told, and as an audience, we demand to hear them.

CNA is a deeply respected and influential media platform, and we sincerely hope that they can reconsider their position on the matter.
