    This was more than a concert! The re-education camp and what an amazing opportunity to connect w/ activists fighting for a better way. I was inspired and will count this as a life changing experience. Also I have bruises on my knees from jumping in the stands and landing on the seat in front of me but that didn't stop me haha! rage rocked my world!! Viva la revolucion!
