Free Izzedine

In support of Izzedine, a young moroccan student from Taza, arrested because he was demonstrating. He has been held in jail since his arrest, on 1st December 2011 and tortured. He began a hunger strike on 19 December in protest at his arbitrary arrest and treatment and is still on hunger strike today, 4 months later. Here is a petition to help ask for his release or at least make his case known. #FreeIzzedine

Hip Hop Maghreb

Hip Hop Maghreb: a brilliant site just launched with a regular tv programme presenting crews and their videos. Below is their programme 1. Am totally hooked on this. The samples these guys rap to are excellent.

Can't wait for Maghreb mixtapes.
