Hip Hop for Social Change
The power of the people is much stronger than the people in power. Hip Hop is a social invention for increasing the participation of youngsters who are often left out of community development processes.

Why firefighters are against free trade - Le Monde diplomatique - English edition

Why firefighters are against free trade - Le Monde diplomatique - English edition | Hip Hop for Social Change | Scoop.it
The French demonstrators in the Nuit Debout movement (Up All Night) hope that a convergence of struggles will enable them to extend their appeal beyond the young and university-educated, and become part of an international dynamic. One of their campaign issues — the rejection of free trade treaties — may help those objectives. The intricacies of trade agreements often discourage protest, as it is very hard to know which stage of the process to scrutinise most closely, or which apparently (...)

Online social change: easy to organize, hard to win

Online social change: easy to organize, hard to win | Hip Hop for Social Change | Scoop.it
Today, a single email can launch a worldwide movement. But as sociologist Zeynep Tufekci suggests, even though online activism is easy to grow, it often doesn't last. Why? She compares modern movements -- Gezi, Ukraine, Hong Kong -- to the civil rights movement of the 1960s, and uncovers a surprising benefit of organizing protest movements the way it happened before Twitter.

A'shon Hatch's curator insight, September 14, 9:43 AM

Getting to the business in this industry is what it's all about. These days to be a mogul, entrepreneurship is the innovation of the rap game. Artists taking their brands to the next level outside of the music, and influencing generations to come to be proactive and gaining full control of their careers. Look to the future, and do ya thing so you can remain on top.

Pour la philosophe belge proche de Podemos, il est urgent de renouer avec une vision conflictuelle de la démocratie, sous peine de glisser sur le terrain de la morale et de faire des adversaires politiques des ennemis irréconciliables.
