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.

The Europe we don't want - Le Monde diplomatique - English edition

The Europe we don't want - Le Monde diplomatique - English edition | Hip Hop for Social Change | Scoop.it
The Eurogroup and the International Monetary Fund have crushed the hopes of a youthful movement that sought to transform a nation and rouse a continent. Beyond the shock that events in Greece have given supporters of the European project, there are other noteworthy features. The EU is becoming increasingly authoritarian, as Germany imposes its wishes and obsessions unchecked. Though founded on a promise of peace, the EU seems incapable of drawing lessons from history, even when recent and (...)
Jan Servaes's insight:

Once Greece raised big, universal questions. Now it has revealed the true face of the Europe we no longer want.

Griekenland en EU: bestraf de verantwoordelijken! | De Bron

Griekenland en EU: bestraf de verantwoordelijken! | De Bron | Hip Hop for Social Change | Scoop.it

Vervolg de verantwoordelijke bestuurders – Griekse en Europese, openbare én private - zoals dat in elke rechtstaat hoort. 

Eenmaal die vervolging en bestraffing plaatsvindt, wordt de Griekse crisis wél oplosbaar. Of blijft het wachten op Godot?

Jan Servaes's insight:

Prosecute the responsible decisionmakers - Greek and European, public and private - as is to be expected under the law.

Once prosecution and punishment effected, the Greek crisis is indeed solvable. Or, better waiting for Godot?
