On Wednesday, February 15th was organized the Rap Battle Against Police Brutality at Le Belmont in Montreal. CKUT was at the event and met Montreal emcees, poets, Concordia students and community members to tackle the issue of police brutality. This charity event may raise awareness on this relevent topic and advocate justice to people who have suffered from police brutality. The Rap Battle allowed people to share their stories, encourage people to act and work on new solutions as a group. Instead of competing, the Rap Battle gave voices to everyone upon a same issue rarely mentioned.
“It is a systematic problem that needs to be address and change raising our voices and unit in a peaceful way” – Max
