Tunisian rappers create union
Tunisia's new "National Rap Union" will be linked to the General Confederation of Tunisian Workers (CGTT), organisers announced Thursday (October 10th) in Tunis.
The union's secretary general, Wajdi Bouzaidi, said the group aimed to defend the rights of rappers.
Tunisian rapper Klay BBJ is serving a six-month sentence for insulting the police. Rappers Mustapha Fakhfakh and Aymen El-Fikih will stand trial next month for allegedly clashing with the police during the June trial of fellow artist Weld El 15.
