      Lightbulb Mos Def, dead prez, and the Coup to perform at the World Social Forum


      0 Not allowed! Not allowed!
      Progressive hip hop artists Mos Def, dead prez, and
      the Coup will perform on Tuesday,
      January 24th at the opening session of the World
      Social Forum in Caracas, Venezuela. On Wednesday,
      January 25th the Trio of artists along with members of
      the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement will be
      participating in three workshops.

      The first workshop is being conducted by the People's
      Hurricane Relief Fund and Oversight Coalition from
      8:30 am - 11:30 am is entitled "The Right of Return:
      the Work of the People's Hurricane Relief Fund and
      Oversight Coalition". The second workshop to be held
      from 12 - 3 pm is entitled, "Hip Hop and the Black
      Liberation Movement in the United States". The third
      workshop will be held from 7 - 8 pm and is entitled
      "Political Prisoners in the United States". The Trio
      will also be performing Wednesday night at a free
      community event for the people of Caracas and the
      international delegates to the World Social Forum.

      The Trio of artists represents a delegation of the
      Black August Hip Hop Collective, which is a collective
      of hip hop artists organized by the Malcolm X
      Grassroots Movement to support its annual Black August
      Hip Hop Benefit Concerts. The Black August Hip Hop
      Benefit Concerts raise awareness and funds in defense
      of political prisoners in the United States from the
      Black Panther Party, the Black Liberation Army, the
      Republic of New Afrika, and the MOVE organization. The
      delegation is being organized by the Malcolm X
      Grassroots Movement, ANHK Marketing, PODER (People
      Organized to Win Environmental and Economic Rights),
      and Grassroots Global Justice.

      The Black August Hip Hop Collective delegation is also
      pursuing the possibility of hosting the 9th Annual
      Black August International Hip Hop Exchange in
      Venezuela in August 2006. Black August 2006 and the
      9th Annual International Exchange will focus on
      building international solidarity, particularly from
      Latin America, for an international tribunal to pursue
      justice after Hurricane Katrina against President Bush
      and the United States Government for their human
      rights crimes against the predominantly African
      American and working class communities of the Gulf
      Coast. The international tribunal on Hurricane Katrina
      is being pursued by a broad coalition which includes
      the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, the Peoples
      Hurricane Relief Fund and Oversight Coalition, the
      Mississippi Disaster Relief Coalition, and the Black
      Activist Network on Hurricane Katrina.
