Music 4 Justice

8 Jun

As part of the movement to demand justice musicians and hip hop artists from around the world have joined forces to support the Khulumani Support Group and its campaign for corporate accountability. We’ll be adding their songs and giving updates about their activities on the Music 4 Justice page – so check that out for your dose of Hip Hop activism!

A BIG thank you to the guys on the ground who have been driving this part of the campaign! Watch this space for details of the CD Launch this Friday…

One of the key organisations helping out with the music is NomadicWax an African-focussed hip hop and social activism record label. Check out this BBC article about the label and some of its other work.

Here’s a sneak-peek of some of the international artists that have contributed to the album:

– Italian Hip Hop artists Zero Plastica and El V and the Gardenhouse

– US Hip Hop artist Zee Santiago

– Ugandan Hip Hop activist Babaluku

All this alongside fantastic SA musicians from across the country…

Join the movement. Listen to the music. Take action to demand corporate accountability.

      Hi Moeketsi,

      You make a very good point about the unfairness of applying an age rule to the special pensions – this is something Khulumani has been lobbying government to change!

      Please do contact the Khulumani director at marje@khulumani.net so that she can follow up with you about your specific situation.
