The Bloc Party for Migrant Justice combines Hip Hop, activism, im/migrant experiences, and diverse communities in creating an inclusive, intergenerational event to celebrate stories of struggle and victories with the neighborhood of Parc Extension.

The brass and percussion of Urban Science Brass Band (part of the Urban Science family) will be there getting the crowd hyped, and several rappers will be there dropping bars for migrant justice. The bill for the show includes Montreal’s finest emcees (see artist links in French section) representing their communities including Meryem Saci (Nomadic Massive) and Stel La who’ll be hosting the show, Taigenz, Hua Li 化力, Milla Thyme, Charles Henderson AKA Chuck (MAN.TRA), Sueños y Raíces (montreal-based latino hip hop composed of Alquimia Verbal, Jazor, Pablo Diablo, DJ Oonga, Gioco Wicho and Josh), Nazim Elnur, Dan Parker Montreal, Shemar Gordon, Marcelle Partouche Gutierrez, A Few Things to Process, and members of the Artists Bloc of the Immigrant Workers Centre.

We will be bringing together the creative forces animating our city to stand in solidarity with im/migrant and marginalized communities in the fight for justice and equity. Jayson Patrimonio Palolan (indigenous artist who incorporates in her designs the issues and ambitions of migrants who work on farms and in factories) and Ivy Up North (muralist, musician) will create pieces throughout the show. Como Loquers will play their Rumba Migrante and Kiwi wil sing some of his tunes.

Presented by the Artists Bloc (Le bloc d’artistes du CTI) of the Immigrant Workers’s Center (Iwc-Cti), The Rap Battles for Social Justice and Solidarity Across Borders( Cité sans frontières / Solidarity City / Ciudad Solidaria (Montréal).)
