A Mini Documentary To Support #OccupySandy, #OpOkRelief, and to spread transparency in all that we do.

Occumentary 2 with Perry Farrell of Jane's Addiction coming soon.

Hurricane Sandy devastated much of the east coast of the United States. When there was no help for the undocumented community members, or as our government likes to call them "illegal aliens", Occupy Wall Street activists, and community members stepped up to the plate and created a massive and well oiled relief organization called Occupy Sandy. When the tornado's in Oklahoma devastated thousands of residents, Occupy Sandy stepped up yet again. It is time we support them back.

On December 18th, 2012 an organization Music For Occupy, teamed up with Viper Records and some of the biggest names in socially conscious Hip Hop to hold a fund raising concert at the Brooklyn Bowl in Brooklyn N.Y. Immortal Technique, Jean Grae, Pharahoe Monch, Hasan Salaam, Poison Pen, Jarisi X, George Martinez & The Global Block Collective, and Rebel Diaz all performed. They came together to show a nearly sold out room of close to 600 people in attendance that we can come together to provide mutual aid, and raise funds all the while being completely transparent.

A few days after the concert, Immortal Technique, Viper Records, and Music For Occupy set out to The Rockaway's, in NYC which was one of the hardest hit areas in all of the east coast. They brought the nearly $7,000 raised from the Hip Hop Relief concert, and another relief concert MFO produced on Long Island with DJ Logic, and Nickodeums, and went to local mom and pop stores and purchased supplies, and delivered them directly to Occupy Sandy headquarters, dubbed YANA (Your Are Never Alone). With the help of cinematographers, and photographers they were able to document every moment

Music For Occupy produced this Occumentary "Guilty Of Giving" - A Guide To Legitimate Fundraising and Activism, to show the world...

Undocumented human beings are still human beings, and it is our humane responsibility to take care of those that need our help, when there is nobody else around.
When you tell people you are going to use money which they donated for a specific cause, show them that you were honest with them. Transparency is the only way.

Martyr Lyrics - Immortal Technique
I'm content to die for my beliefs
So cut off my head and make me a Martyr
The people will always remember it
"No. They will forget"

A man who walks with God, can walk anywhere
Hence.. I fear nothing

[Immortal Technique - Verse 1]
The point of guerilla war, is not to succeed
It's always been just to make the enemy bleed
Deprivin' the soldiers of the peace of mind that they need
Bullets are hard to telegraph when they bob and they weave
The only way a Guerilla War can ever be over
Is when the occupation, can't afford more soldiers
Until they have to draft the last of you into the service
And you refuse cause you don't see the purpose
The only way to counter the insurgents that are well-equipped
Is to paint the people fighting for freedom as terrorists
Then find a faction lookin' for foreign investments
You stall them with power and murder any objections
You can't stop a revolution from breathin'
So to beat 'em they offer people the illusion of freedom
But when you're done dreamin' and wake up, tortured for treason
Then you can see them, hidin' behind the God they believe in

[Chorus]
Deep in the trenches in the heart of a war
That's the place a Martyr is born (Mothafucka it's on)
During the night before the start of the dawn
That's the place a Martyr is born (Mothafucka it's on)
When the gunshots are rainin' in the heart of a storm
That's the place a Martyr is born (Mothafucka it's on)
Guerilla war when the army is gone
That's the place a Martyr is born (Mothafucka it's on)
