From Red Bull on youtube:

Charlie Ahearn, director of the 80s Hip Hop cult movie Wild Style brought the Wild Style Tour to Japan, they conquered the scene! Charlie Ahearn supported the producers of the clips in acquiring the original footage from back in the days. He will be in Japan in November to watch the Red Bull BC One and to see how Hip Hop culture evolved since he and his gang established it in the 80s.

Uneven Global Cotton Fields…
Nov 2010 16

This video highlights the reason why we believe in Fair Trade.

You can download the Fairtrade Foundation report “The Great Cotton Stitch-Up” here.

Harriet Lamb, executive director of the Fairtrade Foundation, said: “This report reveals one of the greatest trade injustices of our time. Ten million farmers are locked into poverty while trade distorting subsidies are paid out by the EU and the US. It is incredible that EU cotton subsidies are worth more per pound than what cotton trades for on global markets. This is why we are calling on the EU to eliminate its cotton trade distorting subsidies and to include this urgently needed measure in the new Common Agricultural Policy reform process launching this week. In Mali, we’re working with one co-operative of 8,000 members who have been able to earn 50% more by producing and selling organic Fairtrade cotton. As a result, 95% of their children are enrolled in school compared with a national average of 43%. This is what a small uplift in farmers’ income can achieve. It is time to end the Great Cotton Stitch-up.”
