About ...



(C) Sorrowdy (OEF 2015)

Music enthusiast and vegetarian for most of my life. For well over 20 years I have been working in the nonprofit/advocacy sector, for a couple of years also as a freelance translator and a music journalist (which is kind of going back to my roots, i.e. Jazz Section /1974-86/). Hobbies include "extreme" music, photography, computers/IT, travel, early medieaval history...

Hudební nadšenec a vegetariánka po valnou část svého života. Přes 20 let pracuji v neziskovém sektoru, v posledních letech navíc jako překladatelka a hudební psavkyně (což je obloukem návrat ke kořenům, Jazzové sekci /1974-86/). Koníčky jsou omezeny časem, v každém případě zahrnují zejména "extrémní" hudbu, fotografování, IT, cestování, raný středověk...

Mixtapes for Aceh Punx - I

Published on April 9, 2012

Message from the organizers:  THIS MIXTAPE DEDICATE FOR HUMAN RIGHT IN ACEH! On Saturday December 11th 2011, 64punks ranging in age from teenaged to mid 30’s were unfairly arrested at a show in Aceh on the island of Sumatra in Indonesia. Over 200 punks were at the show in support of a benefit for orphans. After arrest the punks were forced to watch as they and their friends were forcibly stripped of their haircuts. Men and boys had their heads shaved clean and women’s’ hair was cut short in the fashion of a female police officer. The police then forced everyone to take a communal bath in a lake. Indonesia is a predominantly moderate democratic country but Aceh is by far the strictest when it comes to enforcing morality laws. Shariah law is still allowed in Aceh and the deputy mayor Illiza Sa’aduddin Djamal has stated she thinks punk is a “social disease”. Many of the punks are not originally from Aceh and came to support the benefit for orphans. Many of the punks are working people and have families to support; some are now at risk of losing their jobs because of this illegal detainment. Not only is this a violation of individual freedoms but it is also an abhorrent and blatant violation of human rights. Currently we are organizing mixed tapes, zines, protests and gigs here in Indonesia in support and to benefit our punk brothers and sisters....
