Την ώρα που εκατοντάδες χιλιάδων Αιγυπτίων πολιτών διαδηλώνουν με επίκεντρο τις πλατείες του Καϊρου και της Αλεξάνδρειας ζητώντας την παραίτηση του προέδρου Μόρσι που ένα χρόνο νωρίτερα είχε διαδεχθεί στην εξουσία το καθεστώς Μουμπάρακ, μια χορωδία από εννέα τραγουδιστές και τραγουδίστριες, μέλη του συγκροτήματος των Zajel, σπουδαστές στην πλειοψηφία τους του Κονσερβατορίου Μουσικών Σπουδών του Καϊρου στο Zamalek και μέλη της Οπερας του Καϊρου, ηχογράφησαν το τραγούδι «Motamaredeen» («Επαναστάτες») για να υποστηρίξουν το αντικυβερνητικό κίνημα Tamarod που αυτές τις μέρες συγκλονίζει την Αίγυπτο.

Σκηνές από την εξέγερση των κατοίκων του χωριού Wukan στη νότια Κίνα που από τον Σεπτέμβριο ζητούν δυναμικά την επιστροφή της γης τους που η κυβέρνηση έχει δεσμεύσει για να την παραδώσει στους επενδυτές προς «αξιοποίηση»… Την ίδια στιγμή και ενώ το περιοδικό Time ανακαλύπτει στην πλατεία Συντάγματος της Αθήνας τον σκύλο Λουκάνικο  ως πρόσωπο της χρονιάς, σε εκατοντάδες πλατείες πόλεων ανά τον πλανήτη, από τη Μαδρίτη, το Κάιρο, τη Μόσχα, το Τορόντο, το Τόκιο ως την Ουάσινγκτον, η άμεση δημοκρατία και η επανοικειοποίηση του αγαθού του δημόσιου χώρου γίνονται αίτημα που απλώνεται αγγίζοντας όλο και περισσότερους ανθρώπους που συνειδητοποιούνται απέναντι στη μονοκρατορία των «αγορών». Το παρακάτω video δημιουργήθηκε από ακτιβιστές του κινήματος Occupy Wall Street, πέρασε από την έγκριση της γενικής λαϊκής συνέλευσης της 20ής Δεκεμβρίου στη Νέα Υόρκη και αφιερώνεται στους ανά τον κόσμο υπστηρικτές του κινήματος ως ένα μεγάλο «ευχαριστώ»…

«Jan. 25». To τραγούδι γεννήθηκε σε ένδειξη αλληλεγγύης στον εξεγερμένο λαό της Αιγύπτου συμβολίζοντας το πνεύμα της αντίστασης των νέων του αραβικού κόσμου και των όπου γης καταπιεσμένων.

Από τους MCs:  Freeway, The Narcicyst, Omar Offendum και Amir Sulaiman. Τραγουδάει η καναδή Ayah ενώ στην παραγωγή είναι ο αμερικανοπαλαιστίνιος από τη νότια Καλιφόρνια  Sami Matar.

Οι στίχοι:

«First they ignore you
Then they laugh at you
Then they fight you
Then you WIN»
– Ghandi
OMAR OFFENDUM:
I heard em say
The revolution wont be televised
Aljazeera proved em wrong
Twitter has him paralyzed
80 million strong
And ain’t no longer gonna be terrorized
Organized – Mobilized – Vocalized
On the side of TRUTH
Um il-Dunya’s living proof
That its a matter of time
before the chicken is home to roost
Bouazizi lit the…
and it slowly ignited the fire
within Arab people to fight it
From Tunis to Khan Younis
the new moon shines bright
as The Man’s spoon was
as masses demand rights
and dispel rumors of disunity
communally removing the tumors
of rotten 7ukoomas 
we’re making headway
chanting down the dictators
getting rid of deadweight
opening the floodgates
like the streets of Jeddah
bawwabit il-thawra maftoo7a
oo ma ba2an sid’ha  
we’ve been empowered to speak
and though the future is uncertain
man at least it isn’t bleak
when our children can be raised
not in a cage – but on a peak
the inheritors of mother earth are meek
Freedom isn’t given by oppressors
It’s demanded by oppressed
Freedom lovers – Freedom fighters
Free to gather and protest
for their God-given rights
for a Freedom of the Press
we know Freedom is the answer
The only question is…
Who’s next?
AYAH:
Time to push, and we aint falling back now
Time to fight, because we are all we have now
Do you hear? 
Calling out for back up
Try to keep a look out for better days
THE NARCICYST:
Weathering the storm, pleasure to be born,
news media disseminate at heaven’s gate’s level of alarm…
3rd Person Dictators couldn’t sever them till dawn
3 mill in your streets, We will live in Peace….
you will see it.
But First God Rest the soul of those who choose to be free
from poverty they rose
knee deep in robbery
souls will plummet and burn like Mohammed Bouazizi…
All I see is…
Al-Jazeera Logos,
Pillars of the State can now hear their own souls,
Karma waits for no man,
your presidential charm and armor break,
out of place in your own homeland,
Now Dip like Mezza..
imagine a million human march to Gaza,
From Qahira to Baghdad, siyasatkom saa7ira…..
3alamat Al-akhira…
AYAH:
Time to push, and we aint falling back now
Time to fight, because we are all we have now
Do you hear? 
Calling out for back up
Try to keep a look out for better days
FREEWAY:
And that’s where the beef ends
you should learn a lesson from oppression where it begins
black white yellow it don’t matter what race
before you break us you can push us off the Deep end
different country same struggle we even
contemplate on squeezin when our kids ain’t eating
only other difference is it’s hot all year round there
winter time and your kids ain’t freezing
but we all starving all grieving
and the people with the power ain’t got heart enough to feed us
follow the procedures and I study my Quran
this is modern day signs we just waiting on Jesus
you should be the teacher of Quran to your kids
instead of wasting time watching Kelly Ripa and Regis
this is Egypt
home of the ruins last time we needed change it took Musa to move em
operation get rid of the pharoah
now we getting rid who ain’t willing to share no
bread with the people we are all equal
true men of God, Fear God, don’t fear no
person that’s walking on the face of the earth
if he got a tank, knife, gun, bow or an arrow
long as there’s breath
then there’s still hope left
so let hope rise like the eye of a sparrow
AYAH:
Time to push, and we aint falling back now
Time to fight, because we are all we have now
Do you hear? 
Calling out for back up
Try to keep a look out for better days
AMIR SULAIMAN:
wont be just niggas
wont be just spiks
a rabs pakis rednecks and hicks
the leaders aint helping them feeding their kids
the leaders helping pigs eating their kids
got me back on my Elijah eating to live
run up in the white house like i got a key to the crib
the house and the senate
ousted in a minute
takes these streets to wall street
this ones for kemit
they on that ghandi
they on that che though
but that che turn cairo fuego
Hard for the press to find a Scapegoat
When evey man woman and child at the table
They think they John Adams
They think they Ben Franklin
they want democracy
what them arabs thinkin
the world leaders now can see when
keep people from eating
the people will eat them
AYAH:
Time to push, and we aint falling back now
Time to fight, because we are all we have now
Do you hear? 
Calling out for back up
Try to keep a look out for better days

Hip hop από την αιγυπτιακή εξέγερση..

Στίχοι του κομματιού σε αγγλική απόδοση:

«I’m against the government, I’m against the ruler and I’m against its authority.

I’m against bullying, I’m against oppression, and the rope of injustice is long.

I’m against the government, and I have a thousand reasons…

…Your blood, they’ve been spilling it.

Your religion, they’ve been targeting it.

Your portion of this world, they swallowed it…”

Eνα rap για την Αίγυπτο και το λαό της που διαδηλώνει στους δρόμους… Aπό τους Men seeking prophets. Οι στίχοι:

Sitting on street corner coffee shops
like my pops did
and his pops before him
no hope
playing cards and checkers
bubble double apple smoke
3 like brothers
thick like thieves
but mere
wolves in sheep coats
turned keynote
speakers
screaming at streets
through loud speakers
old army blokes
revolt for the people
but seems the sequel
in now everybody broke
Nasser choked in 67
trapped
both dead and alive
heard the clap
napalm, bombed from the heavens
thank God
he was gone
3 years later
but next came his neighbor
same fava bean, different flavor
able to toss his boss to the side
Saddat, with no pride
shook hands with the devil
I swear, it made my mama cry
its fitting that he died
shot by his right hand
second in command
same plan
same sin
history
like windmills spin

Chorus
controlled currents between continents
gave ships routes to cruise
gave the world pens and paper
later, Naguib Mahfouz

conceived numbers, and algebra
wowed the world with our tombs
Ancient studies in Alexandria
vast volumes of world views

May day! May day!
It’s a state of emergency
urgently gather your family
convert your currency
currently 81
14th, the Tenth month – Sadat ‘s assassinated – crazy though
shot’s to the face like fellatio
hostile takeover, insatiable sense of ownership
Mubarak took over the ship reigns – kung fu grip
ordered it to strip bare – porno chicks
his sons got rich – big figures
everybody else got ditched – grave diggers
three decades, like the flame of my life-span flickers
corrupt state figures with fingers itchy on the triggers
looked left, gave rights to highest bidders
the brightest minds bought plane tickets left it behind
who can blame them though?
a place where cops bust more shots than criminals
minimal opportunity, scholars serving McDonalds for minimum wage currency
it don’t make sense!

Chorus

Its the nature of politics, where most don’t want to bother with
A lot of kids in college never paying homage to the Land of their fathers, and mothers — then you got the opposite,
most want leave their land and join the Economic architects –
even though its hearts against everything that your parents fought hard to protect
And I sit back, I gotta connect and think facts – The conquest of men, in my mother land — Egypt!
stand up to the monarch and spend,
in the name of the impoverished in ending
this poverty trend, that’s extending to all of the lands across
it started with post modern European promise and when,
the Ottoman fell, then the Communists,
came selling calm, but then hell followed, Egypt started eating from the bottom of barrels
Israel, came and caused a problem and well,
Uncle Sam came and told him, «there’s no option to fail!»
Got em a nuke arsenal, while
Egypt stayed uneducated and hated, mind’s invaded,
the heated debates heard in every newspaper we read and we say «whats really going on??»
its time for my people to wake, quake the region and make peace,
for the reason we can lead it to great
go to history, take a read and relate —
see that deep, deep, down — we are the same
