Day of Poetry Against the War - 2/12

Be part of a long and rich tradition of thoughtful and moral opposition by poets and other artists to senseless and murderous policies, including those of our own government.
On January 28, Sam Hamill sent an open letter to a few friends. Word has spread like wildfire from mailbox to mailbox, and to date over 5,300 poets have submitted poems or personal statements to register their opposition to the Bush administration's headlong plunge toward war in Iraq. In doing so, they have honored a long and rich tradition of thoughtful and moral opposition by poets and other artists to senseless and murderous policies, including those of our own government.

In the face of the near unanimous opposition from U.N. members, despite the disapproval of the vast majority of citizens of the world, in defiance of the advice of its own intelligence agencies, and contrary to both common sense and fundamental notions of morality, the Bush administration seems to be on a rocket sled headed for war.

The next few weeks will likely prove to be critical. Please register your protest and add your name to our numbers by submitting a poem or brief commentary. Be part of our National Day of Poetry Against the War on February 12.

A Gulf War Veteran, Mother, Student

This is such a wonderful way to express yourself. As a Gulf War veteran a mother a full time student. I oppose this war! Why is it so hard for some to figure out that war is not the answer. In 1990 as a young mother of 4 boys I left my family for the gulf. My life as never been the same!
Thanks
