MENA Protest Songs

Every great political protest needs its own song, so why should the pro-democracy uprisings of Tunisia, Egypt, and the rest of the region be any different? Of course today thanks to YouTube, these songs can reach beyond a cluster of people gathered around a campfire and to a global audience. Radio Free Europe has collected a selection of five protest song videos from the region including a reworked Iranian student protest song and an Egyptian anti-government rap. You can check them out here.
