hip-hop solidarity

This fantastic video by Rebel Diaz tells about HIJOS in Guatemala's fantastic success at keeping memory and dignity alive. For two years now they've shut down the armed forces day parade and instead held marches in memory of the 50,000 killed in the war (largely by the army). For much more on the story of that, with great photos, see this post at mimundo. Rebel Diaz was at the last vigil to close the SOA. They're amazing, check them out.
