Group raps for referendum

| 19/05/2009

(CNS): A local rap group is encouraging young people to make their mark in tomorrow’s referendum through song. A new track from C.B.R. (Cats Brought up Restricted) “Choice” is a collaboration between the group and the Constitutional Review Secretariat (CRS). Geared towards the 18 to 20+ voter, the song encourages listeners to get informed, make a choice and then vote. “It’s all about civics and participation in the country’s democracy,” CRS Deputy Director Christen Suckoo explained.

 

“We need to encourage more young people to get involved. These young men are leaders in the community, and the song is an excellent way to get the message to their peers,” Suckoo added.

The group said it had jumped at the opportunity to get involved. “This was our chance to make a positive, historically significant contribution,” C.B.R. Manager Fritz McPherson explained. “We all need to learn about the constitution and how it will affect us in the future,” group member Michael ‘M-Lito’ Muthen added.  “We have to be aware of what’s going on in our community and have our say in it.”  

 To listen to the song, visit the Constitutional Review Secretariat’s website at www.constitution.gov.ky, select news & events and click on media room. A link to the 2009 Draft Constitution Explanatory Guide is also available on the site’s homepage.
