here’s the press release:

For a country with some of the highest Aids statistics in the world, South African youth has at times been accused of being remarkably apathetic to the problem. For precisely this reason Levi Strauss South Africa in association with 5FM has decided to create a platform for South African musicians appealing to the youth market to bring the message of “Condoms Everywhere” home. Artists from across the board have been invited for the first ever Rage for the Revolution concert – aimed squarely at the Aids problem and how to counter it from within the ranks of our own youth.

It is a common mindset that HIV/AIDS isn’t affecting a person’s day to day life but in reality HIV/AIDS affect all of us and needs to be addressed to ensure that today’s empires don’t become tomorrow’s ashes. The message to be conveyed is “Condoms Everywhere” and everyone can take on this message. Using condoms is the first step in the prevention of HIV/AIDS and proper awareness needs to be created amongst the masses as this is a social responsibility which cannot be ignored.

‘“Condoms everywhere” is an initiative that every one of us can take ownership of through the way we live our own lives. It is the first step towards a youth of heightened awareness and a revolution of self-responsibility’
– Mike Joubert – Levi’s Strauss South Africa

The Rage for the revolution concert is planned for the 12th of February at the Castle in Cape Town. It is designed as a mouth piece for the prophets and musicians of the new generation to bring the message of personal social awareness home.

“Coming from one of the most dynamic countries in the world (SA), people with the powers that be should encourage original growth and contribute towards unique developmental opportunities. It’s time that we became leaders in the world and not just another flock of wannabe sheep”
- Mike Hardy, Bed on Bricks.

Rage for the revolution - serves as a fundraiser for the Treatment Action Campaign (TAC), dedicated to treatment for people living with HIV/AIDS and for more effective HIV prevention including condoms and life-skills education programs at schools.

“Levi Strauss has a history of support for HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment in the broader community. Every cent raised in this concert will save lives. TAC is proud to partner with Levi Strauss to raise awareness about HIV prevention and treatment amongst all young people.”
– Zackie Achmat (TAC)
