Has to be said in a time where most people think political radicalism is negative, nasty, bullying  facebooking and twittering with a 'politically radical' wrapping, or that watching and listening to 'concious' music etc, that actually building our struggles is actually about DOING and BUILDING in our communities in at the grassroots and also the other plank is RE-building our internationalism which is in a pathetic and cowardly state for the most part.

The other point is that we need to critically reflect on why we are constantly using western dance music sounds to convey a message of internationalism, when the white power structure is using exactly the kinds of forms to conduct a so far successful cultural genocide against our peoples languages, culture, ethics, dress, dance etc.

I thought it was bigger than hip-hop, but too often it seems hip-hop is bigger than all these other important problematic dynamics.
