STATEMENTS OF SUPPORT
Right now, Tate’s integrity is in the dock. Its most vulnerable and diverse workers have been put in plight. This is the time, of all times, for Tate to say NO to the lowest paid paying the highest price.
True radicalness happens when those with power use it to support those without. And compassion is always the most radical act of all.
Tate, don’t justify these cuts so valiantly. Don’t look on coolly while people suffer. If the system doesn’t work for everyone, dismantle the system decisively. Rehabilitate it.
