In light of Israeli Apartheid week, many young Jewish people have felt helpless against some of the hate speech that has been spreading across campuses, whose goal is to demonize Israel and delegitimize the Jewish state. Since nothing was happening in the creative/musical sphere to speak out against this kind of rhetoric, we thought it was necessary to provide a forum for us to express our love and support for our community during this time, and to stand up against the anti-semitism that has been fuelled by the recent events taking place in Montreal. Name: TLV2MTL (Tel Aviv to Montreal) When: This Thursday, March 26th from 7-11pm Where: Fresh Paint Gallery (256 rue Ste. Catherine Est) (Free entry with rsvp@underpressure.ca). Who: Emcees (Socalled, Shi360, Isaac Miracles, RviR) DJs (Killa-Jewel, Brace, Yo-C) all local Jewish talent. Goal: -Raise awareness of the anti-semitism we are currently facing in our city -Bring young Jewish people together in a show of solidarity against anti-semitism -Celebrate Jewish culture and heritage -Make Zionism cool again! Donations will be going to Lunch for a Bunch and Le Cafe Soup Kitchen!
