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.

Before one points a finger to others, look into the mirror or soon one may end up a King without clothings.

Capitalism will eat democracy -- unless we speak up

Capitalism will eat democracy -- unless we speak up | Hip Hop for Social Change | Scoop.it
Have you wondered why politicians aren't what they used to be, why governments seem unable to solve real problems? Economist Yanis Varoufakis, the former Minister of Finance for Greece, says that it's because you can be in politics today but not be in power -- because real power now belongs to those who control the economy. He believes that the mega-rich and corporations are cannibalizing the political sphere, causing financial crisis. In this talk, hear his dream for a world in which capital and labor no longer struggle against each other, "one that is simultaneously libertarian, Marxist and Keynesian."

A'shon Hatch's curator insight, September 14, 9:57 AM

Tribe was truly a deep inspiration to hip-hop in an era of "gangsta rap". Allowing us to feel free and connect with the eclectic sounds and styles they kicked. The influence and impact will resonate for centuries, and we will remember Phife forever, as he shall live on through his intrinsic flow of dopeness.

Banksy work in Calais 'Jungle' shows Steve Jobs as migrant - BBC News | Hip Hop for Social Change | Scoop.it
Jan Servaes's insight:

Banksy said "We're often led to believe migration is a drain on the country's resources but Steve Jobs was the son of a Syrian migrant.

Apple is the world's most profitable company, it pays over $7bn (£4.6bn) a year in taxes - and it only exists because they allowed in a young man from Homs."

Plat op de buik

Plat op de buik | Hip Hop for Social Change | Scoop.it
De Europese Unie sluit een pact met Turkije over de opvang van vluchtelingen. Maar de prijs die Europa daarvoor betaalt, is onaanvaardbaar hoog.
Jan Servaes's insight:

Ten gronde is gisteren in Brussel duidelijk geworden hoe veel – of hoe weinig – die veelgeroemde Europese waarden eigenlijk nog voorstellen. We betalen liever een fiks bedrag om geen vluchtelingen meer binnen te krijgen. En we geven de sleutel aan een regime dat mensenrechten, vrije meningsuiting en de rechtsstaat met de voeten treedt.
