Press release: UK Event – Surviving the Idiots


Organised by the IHRC in London on Monday 4 November.

Gonzales uses a unique blend of quickfire rap and poetry to concuss his audience into reflecting on the major global themes of the day. His performances have earned him plaudits worldwide.

Born in Alaska, of Mexican parentage, and a Muslim, Gonzales tackles issues ranging from the war on terror and Palestine, to masculinity and women’s rights.

In an age where information is characterised by quantity over quality and facts are inseparable from fiction he will be asking the question: “How does one stay alive in a time when it is almost painful to be intelligent?” 

The event is hosted by the IHRC and will take place at 7pm at Housmans, Peace House, 5 Caledonian Road, Kings Cross, London N1 9DX. Tickets priced £10 can be bought from the IHRC website.
