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.
