      Rap Artsit K'Nann Beaten By Club Security in Sweden
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      K'naan is featured on the new song by M-1 of dead prez called 'Till We get There'

      The Tradgarn venue and Swedish Security in Gottenberg have been responsible
      for racially assaulting an International Touring Band. Here are some of the
      reasons why you should boycott this venue and enforce a firing of the
      swedish "security" guards:

      On the evening of March 14th, 2006, Somali/Canadian recording artist,
      K’naan, and his manager, Sol Guy, were physically attacked by security
      guards working for the Tradgarn venue in Gothenburg, Sweden.

      Guy and K’naan are currently on a European tour as the support act for
      Grammy Award winning reggae star Damian “Jr. Gong" Marley.

      1. Having completed the show that evening they were leaving an area of
      Tradgarn venue when K’naan was shoved out the door by a security guard and
      told that they had to leave.

      2. Confused by the security guard’s actions, Guy replied that they still had
      equipment and computers in the venue and needed to access another part of
      the venue in order to gather their things. In an effort to avoid further
      unprovoked physical assault Guy attempted to walk around the security guard.
      Rather than act in the professional manner required of his position, the
      security guard instead chose to rally his colleagues in violence.

      3. While K’naan was restrained and assaulted by two security guards, Guy was
      dragged into a kitchen area by two other security guards and subsequently
      kicked and punched in the ribs, jaws, head and face.

      4. He was then handcuffed and made to lie on a dirty floor littered with
      bits of glass.

      5. The Gothenburg city police were called and upon their arrival took only
      the security guards statement and then arrested Guy without explaining what
      it was that he was being charged with.

      6. Upon arrival at the police station Guy was strip-searched and
      incarcerated in a pitch black cell, isolated for approximately three hours
      before he was allowed to make his statement.

      7. Guy remained in custody for approximately six hours in total at which
      point no charges were filed and he was released. While we are not privy to
      Swedish law, we view the actions of the Gothenburg police as unjust.

      We feel that the action of the security guards of Tradgarn venue were not
      only unprofessional, arrogant and unjustifiably violent but also racist in
      nature. Guy and company were not random crowd-goers but performing artists
      contracted to work that evening! The disrespect, violence and racism
      demonstrated by the security guards of the venue can at no point be
      justified.

      We call for the termination of the employees in question and for the boycott
      of future use of the venue. Our experience at Tradgarn was undignified and
      scarring and we will not silently endure this kind of injustice, lest the
      next brother that comes along endure such obvious hatred.

      Of course, some of the very large national touring acts can afford to put up
      with the racist acts of the Tradgarn; still, most of the bands, concert
      goers, managers, and decent human beings would benefit by boycotting the
      Tradgarn and playing different venues.

      If the undersigned would please leave comments of personal anecdotes and
      observations of the Tradgarn (must be personal or factual, please don't say
      rumors).
      Thank you,
      one love

      Sincerely,
