Soundz of the South to host hip-hop & poetry event & Arts Update

We also spoke to Khusta Sijora - From Soundz of the South. Soundz of the South or SOS is a network of activists who use hip-hop and poetry to spread revolutionary messages, raise consciousness and critique neo-liberalism. The aim of the network is to facilitate and encourage a process of self-organisation against neoliberalism within communities as part of the broader struggle to emancipate us all.
