Sandblast for Saharawis at Roundhouse on 6 June

I blogged in December 2011 about Morocco's appalling occupation of Western Sahara. That post has today prompted a welcome email from Sandblast, whose website explains that it is: "an arts and human rights charity working with the indigenous people from Western Sahara, the Saharawis whose identity and culture is threatened by the impact of exile and Morocco's occupation. It is our mission to empower the Saharawis to tell their own story, promote their own culture and earn a living through the arts." They're having this event at London's Roundhouse Studio Theatre on Wednesday 6 June 2012, to launch Studio-Live, a project that aims "to facilitate the flourishing of a music industry in the Saharawi refugee camps based in SW Algeria and give opportunities for young talent to express themselves through music", with ticket money from the event going towards the project.
