Bruce Springsteen cancela su concierto en North Carolina como protesta por la ley que ataca los derechos de los transexuales.


Estos días el Estado de Carolina del Norte en EEUU está que arde ante la iniciativa legal que ataca al colectivo LGTB (Lesbianas, gays, transexuales y bisexuales) dejándolos totalmente desprotegidos ante la normativa de que los transexuales tengan que utilizar lavabos que sean de uso exclusivamente del sexo 'originario' del mismo. Este paso atrás en la libertad ha sido la causa principal de que Bruce Springsteen se ponga del lado de los que protestan contra esta medida y haya cancelado su concierto en este Estado.


El músico ha colgado su decisión en su página Facebook explicando los motivos de la misma:










A Statement from Bruce Springsteen on North Carolina
BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN·VIERNES, 8 DE ABRIL DE 2016

As you, my fans, know I’m scheduled to play in Greensboro, North Carolina this Sunday. As we also know, North Carolina has just passed HB2, which the media are referring to as the “bathroom” law. HB2 — known officially as the Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act — dictates which bathrooms transgender people are permitted to use. Just as important, the law also attacks the rights of LGBT citizens to sue when their human rights are violated in the workplace. No other group of North Carolinians faces such a burden. To my mind, it’s an attempt by people who cannot stand the progress our country has made in recognizing the human rights of all of our citizens to overturn that progress. Right now, there are many groups, businesses, and individuals in North Carolina working to oppose and overcome these negative developments. Taking all of this into account, I feel that this is a time for me and the band to show solidarity for those freedom fighters. As a result, and with deepest apologies to our dedicated fans in Greensboro, we have canceled our show scheduled for Sunday, April 10th. Some things are more important than a rock show and this fight against prejudice and bigotry — which is happening as I write — is one of them. It is the strongest means I have for raising my voice in opposition to those who continue to push us backwards instead of forwards.
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band’s Sunday April 10th show is canceled. Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.
