Ladies & Gents, meet Ayman El-Sayed an independent journalist who has reported from Iraq, Palestine, Egypt, Cuba and the Former Yugoslavia. He is a member of Existence is Resistance, an organization that recently traveled to besieged Gaza and links progressive hip hop artist from the US with those in Palestine to raise awareness against the occupation.
Ayman was born in Brooklyn, New York. Growing up in both New York and war-torn Lebanon shaped his outlook on the world. Over the past ten years he has been an anti-war activist and a supporter of freeing political prisoners such as Mumia Abu-Jamal. He has also organized against police brutality and cuts to CUNY.
Ayman's art is different than the artists I interviewed but its in the same direction, he uses his skills and passion to promote artists, show the real story & support in all ways possible.
