Sometimes an artists takes it upon themselves to give voice to the voiceless. Those without a voice are sometimes furry, sometimes not, sometimes on four legs, and sometimes not.

Sometimes, a whole group of artists come together to collectively lend their voices to those who have none. Flaex and Flo Hillen have made such a tour in the new year and its something you don’t want to miss if you like great music and animal rights activism.

Supporting acts include IFEEL (who we interviewed not too long ago), Andy Jones and Queen V.

Check out these amazing artists who are not only brilliant at what they do but also use their voices responsibly.

Music, after all, is utterly tied to activism.

Moroccan Rapper Gets 1 Year Prison Sentence For Insulting The Police

Moroccan artists have long had to face serious oppression and attacks on to their freedom of expression. The latest victim of Moroccan government and police system is rapper Gnawi (real name Mohamed Mounir) who recently rapped on a track that criticizes the government and the economic division that young and older people experience on a daily basis.

The track’s lyrics cover a lot of ground and even criticize the king of Morocco which is a criminal offense in the country.

Apparently Gnawi can appeal the court’s decision. We at Shouts call upon the Moroccan government to stop oppressing free speech and artists’ freedom to create and work.

One can only wonder why governments are so afraid of music. After all, they are the ones with the big weapons – how much can a rap song harm them? A protest song is supposed inspire the masses though, and if successful, the people who listen and take the message to heart can join hands and tear down fascist governments.

That must be why governments put singers in prison. To prevent such possible damage to their powers. That is also why we must all keep on singing, and fight for the rights of those currently locked up.
