Lutte contre la censure du rap au DC Congo
Au mois de Juin 2004, la Comité de Censure du Congo a censuré tous les groupes de rap Congolais, et ainsi la musique etrangere (decision prise par le procureur general de la republique). Donc les clips et les sons ne peuvent plus etre diffusés au Congo (seulement le ndombolo). Le directeur des programmes de la chaine de la television privée de Kinshasa, Canal Tropical TV, a été détenu pendant plusieurs heures jeudi pour avoir 'diffusé des clips étrangers et du rap Congolais'.
Tous les rappeurs du Congo (y inclus PNB, K-Melia, KMS, Bawuta Kin, Keep Kwyte, Fofo, NMB, Section Bantou) essayent de revendiquer leurs droits a kin mais personne ne leur ecoute.

UPDATE (mois d'Octobre, 2004): Merci pour votre support! L'interdiction du rap au Congo a été soulevée grâce à vos efforts collectifs et à l'attention internationale de médias que notre pétition a causé! La pétition est fermée, mais vous pouvez toujours lire les messages que des gens de partout dans le monde ont laissés.

Fight against censorship of rap in DC Congo
In June 2004, the Committee of Censorship in Congo censored all Congolese rap groups and foreign music (decision taken by the Attorney General of the Republic). Thus the clips and music may no longer be broadcasted in Congo (with the example of ndombolo). The program director of Kinshasa's private television chain Tropical Channel TV, was held during several hours Thursday for having 'broadcasted foreign clips and Congolese rap'. All Congolese rappers (including PNB, K-Melia, KMS, Bawuta Kin, Keep Kwyte, Fofo, NMB, Section Bantou) are trying to assert their rights but nobody's listening.

UPDATE (October 2004): Thanks for your support! The ban on rap in Congo has been lifted thanks to your collective efforts and the international media attention which our petition caused! The petition is closed, but you can still read the messages that people from around the world have posted.




Petition
I disagree with the ban on rap and foreign music in Congo / je suis en désaccord avec l'interdiction du rap et la musique étrangère au Congo.

je suis mere de 3 enfants. lorsque j'ai vue à la tele un clip dans lequel il y avait une fille nue, j'étais choquée.c'est bien de redresser une jeunesse pervetis mais qui n'a pas honte de demasquer les problèmes du pays sans honte.. je suis psychologue et je conseille tout de meme aux autorités de se rapprocher des jeunes du pays, de faire un debat sur ces questions là, de trouver un terrain d'entente. il faut censurer des choses comme le port des habits sexy et le non respect de la pudeur que vous devez inclure dans l'education nationale mais sans avoir de partie pris, vous ne connaitrez jamais les projections de votre jeunesse si vous ne les laissez pas s'exprimer. il est bien de dire c'est bein jouer je vous encourage mais avec cette jeunesse...donc fixer vous afin qu'il n'y ait pas de division entre jeunes et adultes car demain si vous tombez, ils riront à vos nez. je conseille aussi aux rappeurs d'etre moins insolent dans leurs chansons et moins vicieux dans leurs clips. aux filles, sachez que votre pudeur est ce qui fait de vous une femme...
 
Comment by kasongo from congo on 21-10-2004 12:36
Rap sometimes can be good in some ways but it can't mix up with the tradition Congolese music and at the same time if someone can tell me some Rappers who don't associate themselms with guns then i am may be willing to support the cause but personally i think rap is good in Western countries even though it is there in Africa it can be good for other country with less tradition celebrated music than congo were tradition music is Everything and even if they are fighting they can stop in line of duty and dance for a while till he reliase he is under fire. It can be alright if they can sing the traditional ones but add one or two songs in their albums. Lastly as a congolese i wouldn't like to let the young people to be influence by music which i know well many who sing these songs always carry it together with things associated with guns and anless if i will be able maybe see the the who thing i may support if it doesn't threghten the real congolese music. You can even tell from other comments alredy made, the language just shows you that in Africa if that is the language the Rappers are going to use it not gonna go well because we can't cross bounderings in the name of freedon, mind you freedon sometimes distroys society and others uses freedom to destoy want you believe in.

i run a record label in nigeria and germany and i believe in the rap culture just like any other rapper out there in congo...it is a free world and censorship should be directed at individuals and age limits. that should be perental guidance..let the listeners make thier choice not force it on them...the goverment should not think they can force the horse to drink.This is 2004 for crying out load..it is totally wrong to take away peoples right to listen and view what they wish to at the age of 18..simple...i think they should also ban the internet and ban all violent and vulgar movies and then we should simply tag CONGO another.....'dictorship 2004'...crazy and unbelievable this can still occure in a non- islamic state..cause we all know the islamic states for such decisions...using religion as thier basis..please congo should revisit that decision and change it.

Comment by casey williams from nigeria on 03-10-2004 20:42
a ban on hip-hop?thats crazy men.i bet the people after this ban dont have kids at home .
hip-hop,is the only education we know cos it is more than the rap thing alone it is a culture a way of life 4 the youngsters and even the adults.
i think was they should be talking abouy how 2 ban it should be the war ovwr there and not rap music.
hip-hop 4ver................one love.
 
Comment by Kariz from USA on 30-09-2004 17:27
Hip Hop kept a lot of my friends out of jail and saved a couple of there life. With music I have brought unity in my community.Give the kids a motive for sucsess, school is not enough for some of us. Hip Hop helps growth in the youth and in your community. I acually was blessed enough to live of my music for 3 years, i didnt have to work for anyone. So let us do what we love cause its what we love that brings us together. SAVE THE MUSIC MOVEMENT
 
Comment by Gisela from Allemagne on 30-09-2004 15:03
Le Congo - c'est une republique democratique??

So please: STOP WAR NOT MUSIC!

Le Hip-Hop (et le Rap)est une "methode" d'exprimer son opinion - meme si c'est critiquante, mais c'est ca, la democratie. Et a cause de cela la democratie et une de plus difficile systeme politique, parce'que c'est complexe dans tout facon. Il faut apprendre d'accepter beaucoup des choses, aussi la critique! Mais pour beaucoup des politiciens c'est plus facile d'accepter une guerre comme "methode de critique" que les mots critiquante comme une strategie pour une solution des conflits.

Comment by Petty from Togo on 25-09-2004 16:49
Yo all my Niggers,
who wanna stop hip hop music in Congo! Don't consider them and just continue in the way U've choosed to express your opinions.It's a right for all the youngs arounds the world to say what they think. All those who want to stop hip hop are the people against the peace.We need peace in Africa, we need to say what we think, we need to achieve our goal. So we don' need to follow the same way to help the development of motherland Africa. Some people use the books, politics but we are using music which is hip hop let us in peace ; we need FREEDOM.

Peace out niggers & see ya!

Comment by T-Bone from France/Italy/UK on 22-09-2004 12:08
Hip Hop culture and music can be a positive force in educating young minds and challenging the status quo. The issue is access and national communication. Minds can only evolve if they are exposed to the right material.

I hope the congolese authorities recognize the value of Hip Hop in the community and authorize its distriubtion and broadcasting.

One more thing... Rap and hip hop can be ways to deal with things and control yourself from doing stupid things. I know this from experience. If you ban rap you are banning a culture not only in the drc but all around the world. I think its wack doing that and im sure all my niggaz who have posted feel the same way as well as the petition holders. I have a saying... Don't keep it real, keep it rite, so dont ban rap keep it around. Please! Holla if ya want.

Comment by Enoch Yisrael from United States on 17-09-2004 21:36
Eh, It is very much a real conspiracy
of the Babylon influence there in the Congo
to systematic discourage the sub-cultural youth rebellious art are all a intergral part of known as Hip-Hop because it is a
unique vice of voicing one constant existence as a youth and it demonstrates our displeasure in regards to the wickedness
that Babylon has perpetuated against InI and the devastation that has been a real burden on InI so that the Truth to them is very dangerous but as far as Hip-Hop is
concern it will continue to surpass that until this everwicked Babylon is of no more
and the wicked ban should be lifted or the Creator will do so in absolute judgment. Peace.
 
Comment by mois from australia on 16-09-2004 02:26
what does the D in DR congolaise stand for? censorship only pushes the art, expression, dissent sideways. the rest of the world is watching, supporting and will remain home to your censored artists. you will only lose the hearts and minds and perhaps bodies of the most talented congolese...

peace to this inspiring list of people who wont shut up!

Stop the cencoring of cultural expressions. Hip Hop is not more critical towards politics than word of mouth on the streets. Hip Hop can't be held down, as it is a way of life. People will always try to make it better for themselves, even if that means critizising the government. Hip Hop is only one way of doing this, and non violent as well.

Freedom of speech for everybody....

More fire!

Comment by Ange moanda from DRC on 13-09-2004 15:27
cette décision de censure a été voulu en majorité par les parents qui sont d'une autre génération et qui sont incable de comprendre et de s'adapter aux besoins de la jeunesse actuelle.Tous les messages lancés dans ces chansons ne sont tous pas mauvais, ce que l'Etat devrait faire c'est s'approcher de ces jeunes et essayer de canaliser cette musique.Par ailleurs, en vertue du principe de réciprocité,ce genre d'attitude ne fait que conduire notre pays en marge du processus de mondialisation en cours.
 
Comment by Ange Moanda from DRC on 13-09-2004 14:17
En principe la censure intervient dans le but de protéger les consommateurs de l'audiovisuel en cas d'abus.Hors, il a été clairement signalé que cette décision a été motivé par les parents qui se plaignent des accoutrements des jeunes dans les clips diffusés.En effet, cette musique est essentiellement destinée aux jeunes quoi de plus normale que ces accoutrements étonnent les parents qui sont eux, d'une autre générations.De plus les messages lancés par certains de ces groupes peuvent s'insicre dans le cadre de la reconsrtuction nationale par ex:Mis à part, god sayer.Ce qu'il faut plutot faire c'est de canaliser cette musique plutot que de l'interdire.Par ailleurs, en vertue du principe de réciprocité entre Etats interdire la musique hip hop étrangère met la RDC en marge de la mondialisation des marchés,impérieuse nécessité pour la relance de notre économie.

Le monde ont besoin de savoir la verite. Hip-Hop est un force positif, le gouvernment doit utiliser les rappeurs pour unifier les gens Congolaises. Ne Les Censurez Pas! S'il y a une repuplique democratique, Tout le monde doit avoir le pouvre pour parler et entendre librement.

Violence persists with or without Hip-Hop, yet they ban Hip-Hop to stop the violence?
This ban sounds more like a desperate government trying to lay the blame on hip-hop for all the problems which resulted from their long war.
