Grammy-nominated Chilean rapper Ana Tijoux joined forces with Palestianian emcee Shadia Mansour in the new song and video “Somos Sur,” which dropped earlier this week.
“ ‘Somos Sur’ is about the importance of resistance, not only in Chile, but around the world,” Tijoux told Rolling Stone. “Global resistance movements, whether in Latin America, Africa or the Middle East, are fighting against the same patterns of violence that have repeated themselves throughout history. Which means many of these groups share a similar set of demands. We are asking for a free Palestine just like we’re asking for an independent Wallmapu in Chile, without police control.”
