Here’s a video that everyone should see. Its clear that the international media has a bent towards the US and Europe, and the recent explosion of the dastardly Somali pirates in the news is no break from the norm.
Check out this video interview of K’naan, a Somalian hip hop artist (his album the dusty foot philosopher is dope), as he sheds a little clarity on the larger situation @ hand.
Neither BFO–nor does he–condone the actions of the pirates. However, the issues he brings up merit some further inspection: dumping of Nuclear waste in Somali waters, illegal fishing and other abuses.
Definitely a fresh twist on what the news is bringing you nowadays.
