Pearl Thusi has spoken up on police violence against black people in particular.
The media personality has called on young people to take a firm stand against femicide and abuse of women and children.
The Queen Sono lead actress took to social media to let her peeps know that despite the change in government, the struggle still continues.
She shared pictures of the Soweto Uprising on Instagram and captioned her post:
"The more things change, the more they stay the same. The powers that be may have changed, but the struggle continues."
The stunner urged today's youth to be inspired by the youth involved in the 16 June, 1976 Soweto Uprising in order to change issues that affect Mzansi nowadays.
"We come from a lineage of brave fighters. We should not be fighting so many years later but this memory should not only remind us, it should inspire us to create and sustain a change that the next generation can build on. No more fighting the power. We must learn to be the power."
Pearl also urged the youth to act against femicide and police brutality.
"Women are killed. Police are still specifically violent with black people. Are we a generation willing to die for justice? Or are we willing to watch our fellow citizens, especially women and children, be abused and murdered by our very own?"
