The Daily Poetry Movement

Code Pink SISTERS! "If an event was not witnessed by the media- the journalists- then it did not happen." Amy Goodman referring to the mass arrests of journalists before they arrested the poets at a Code Pink protest! As recalled by Maxine Hong Kingston, an arrested poet. Now is pink- now is the time for a mass rebellion of feminists and lovers!

Statement of Conscience
Maxine Hong Kingston

It is the profession of the poet that she knows truth and beauty.
Listen: Iraq has already been divided into three parts. We have
already destroyed the north and the south, the No-Fly Zones; we have
destroyed the water treatment plants by bombings every week for a
decade. We do not need to saturate-bomb the rest of the country. We
have been at war with Iraq for a decade - this latest Bush plan means
to kill off the country entirely. We Americans are already the only
people who've ever dropped nuclear bombs - Let's learn our lesson
from the past, and not do such evil again. War will only make things
worse.
