Tadamon! Montreal, in collaboration with local musicians and artists, presents a benefit concert in solidarity with the people of Lebanon.
All proceeds will be donated to the Sanayeh Relief Center, which operates in central Beirut, providing frontline humanitarian aid to thousands of internally displaced Lebanese. The all-volunteer center also provides essential information through its newsfeed, bombardment maps and independent media, and organises political action against the complicity of the “international community” in the aggression.
An estimated 1 million people have been displaced in Lebanon, with an additional 2000 injured and upwards of 1000 killed since the start of the Israeli military assault on the country. The past three weeks’ destruction of homes, apartment buildings, roads, bridges, ports, airports, energy supplies, factories, warehouses, hospitals, schools has left the country and its people devastated.
