A Benefit to Kick off the Women Refugees Defence Fund first recipient: a
Trinidadian woman whose story is all too familiar: Discriminated against
by a government seeking white-bred, rich immigrants, she was deported
after living in Canada for 16 years.  Her kids are still here and she's
fighting to get back to them.  She has a strong case, but she needs
financial and political support.

who's playing:  

Women Ah Run Tings :  Women from Jamaican and Nigerian backgrounds came
together to form a Toronto-based band with energy, soul, and the future
on their side.  Taking the breaking beats from their communities, they
mix
sounds and flavas going past set rules to set new styles.  Not satisfied
with the confining labels of the current music scene, they play and
compose Dance Hall Reggae, with blends of Hip Hop and R&B that are the
forefront of creating a new sound: one that puts the street life of
Caribbean and African culture next to the Urban realities of North
America. 

Random Order:  A Toronto progressive music staple, Random Order mixes
original and classic Ska and R&B with vision and political action.
Supporting womens music and grassroots organizing since day one, Random
Order gets the house jumpin with their unique queer positive vibe.

Deborah Alison:  Deborah Alison mixes Reggae rhythms with strong
political messages of unity and courage.
