Libyan Activist Music: G-A-B – “Libya Bleeds Just Like Us”

Jan 12, 2012 – Libyan activist musicians, who go by the name GAB Crew, have been putting out activist music supporting the youth uprising and the Arab Spring in Libya from the start. They wrote a song called "Libya Bleeds Just Like Us" while Qaddfi was still in power, and months before Tripoli fell. The song was leaked, and when asked by a Qaddai loyalist to write a pro-Qaddafi song, they were horrified and went underground. When the rebel force took the capital, they returned home, and are happy now that they can be more free to be creative and express themselves with protest songs under the new transitional government.
