- Florence Masebe has shared two parts video clips of her submission to the parliament on Twitter in which she fights for actor’s rights
- In the first clip, she pleads for economic rights and the end of exploitation of actors by broadcasters and producers
- In the second clip, Florence preached on behalf of all actors in Mzansi, using her own experience as proof of the ongoing issues
Award-winning South African actress Florence Masebe has called for the government to support actors and help the entertainment industry.
Taking to social media with two clip of her speech, Florence expressed how she believes the situation has only gotten worse. Actors deserve economic rights and she will not stop until that day comes.
“Giving economic rights to actors is not a mistake, it is something that should have been part of the system all these years but unfortunately the focus of our industry is never the actor it is always the pockets of the broadcaster and the producer while zero consideration is given to actor’s earnings and dignity.”
Florence went on to state that actors are being exploited and need to be protected by legislation.
“My next plea to this committee and parliament is that you please save us and the future generation from the blatant exploitation of actors by broadcasters and producers who for many years have taken advantage of the lack of education and information among many of us.”
In the second clip, Florence expressed how she speaks on behalf of many actors in Mzansi who are struggling, and that her own struggles are proof of the deep routed issues actors have been facing for many years.
“My reality speaks to an environment of an actor in this country… not America, not Europe and not any other place but here at home. My input may be that of an individual but I strongly believe that my sentiments here are representative of the voices of many audio-visual performers, actors who have not had the opportunity to put forward a submission to this committee and make their voices heard.”
