HipHops have become political prisoners!

Last night I saw a report about HipHop in Myanmar. HipHops are haunted (by the
government and the police) and judged for being part of an "oppositional organization". The Acid Crew was rapping about self-determination, asked the listener to think by his/ her own and to question the government and the society. Therefore most of them were senteced to 7 years in prison. Now even HipHops have become polictical prisoners!
