* Artists Against Apartheid: radio broadcast

MONDAY DECEMBER 15th 12h00 - 14h00
live broadcast on CKUT Radio, 90.3fm
tune-in globally via live stream at

Throughout the past year in Montreal multiple artists have come together
for Artists Against Apartheid, an ongoing concert series uniting artists
in solidarity with the growing international movement against Israeli

CKUT radio presents a special radio broadcast featuring live performances
recorded at the Artists Against Apartheid concert series throughout this
past year, recordings that are being broadcast for the first time live on
CKUT community radio in Montreal.

Broadcast will feature performances from groundbreaking artists from
different front-lines within Montreal's internationally celebrated music
scene; featuring live performances from the celebrated hip-hop ensemble
Nomadic Massive, jazz saxophonist Matana Roberts, cellist Rebecca Foon
from Silver Mt. Zion, composer Antoine Bustros, hip-hop artist Vox Sambou,
the Kalmunity Vibe Collective, Balkan musician Lubo Alexandrov, poet Kaie
Kellough and others...

As a cultural initiative Artists Against Apartheid occurs as Israel's
military occupation over the Gaza Strip and West Bank intensifies, in
violation of international law and multiple U.N. resolutions. Palestinian
citizens face an entrenched system of racial discrimination and
segregation, resembling the defeated apartheid system in South Africa. A
matrix of Israeli-only roads, electrified fences, and over 500 military
checkpoints and roadblocks erase freedom of movement.

In response to apartheid policies imposed on the Palestinian people by
Israel multiple artists are coming together in Montreal through the
ongoing Artists Against Apartheid concert series, presenting a cultural
force in solidarity with the ongoing Palestinian struggle for freedom.

This radio broadcast is presented on CKUT radio within Tadamon!'s ongoing
political campaigns operating in Canada, including the campaign for
boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israeli apartheid state and the
campaign to challenge the listing of Hezbollah as a terrorist organization
by the Canadian government.
