The Wider Image: South Sudanese youth turn to art to push for peace
South Sudanese activists are using music, poetry, theatre, comedy, dance and fashion to preach tolerance in the world's youngest nation which has been divided by years of civil war. South Sudan won independence from Sudan in 2011 but descended into war in 2013 after President Salva Kiir fired his deputy Riek Machar, unleashing a conflict that has spawned armed factions often along ethnic lines. Supporters on both sides, many of whom reside outside of the country due to the conflict, have taken the hostilities to the Internet, using Facebook and Twitter to take each other on with posts that are sometimes deemed hate speech. Enter Ana Taban, which means "I'm tired" in Arabic, a group of young musicians, fashion designers and poets who are using art and culture to demand peace in their homeland.
