City of Roses
This Wednesday, over 15,000 anti-war poems and statements will be presented to members of Congress. If you are strongly opposing the war also and haven't submitted yet, please do so, and may the continuing pandemonium of justice be made!
Here's more information, quoted from the official web-site:
"Poets Against the War announces an International Day of Poetry Against the War on Wednesday, March 5th. Poets around the world will schedule readings and/or discussions of poetry and protest for that day. At noon on March 5th on Capitol Hill, three of America’s preeminent living poets (representing an extraordinary cross section of distinguished poets) will present approximately 15,000 anti-war poems to members of Congress. Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-OH) will host the event with other members of the Progressive Caucus including Caucus Co-Chair Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) and Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA).
The poems will be presented by Pulitzer prize winner and Chancellor of the Academy of American Poets W.S. Merwin, Pulitzer prize winner Jorie Graham, author and poet Terry Tempest Williams and founding editor of Copper Canyon Press Sam Hamill."
On the web-site, you will also find a 14-minute streaming video featuring some of the most prominent poets of today speaking out against the war.
