France-born, Chilean hip hop poetess Ana Tijoux sheds light on the ongoing conflict happening in Chile regarding the student movement in this latest video “Shock,” from her album La Bala (US release, early 2012; Chile release, Nov. 1st, 2011). The video voices how the youth see the actual education system as an unjust sociopolitical and economical model. What is shocking is that not many artists who have the position to influence masses are doing much to highlight a fucked up reality. Thanks Anita for doing so. ¡¡¡Ámonos resistencia creativa!!!
