It all started with the Poets! When the Poets see... they share. They want the eyes of the world to recognize...and at last, here we are.
100 Thousand plus...
When Mohammad Ibn Al Ajami is done unjust, in representing his world, his reality, for what it is, what it has unfolded...he shares his words, his truths. As a Poet he must...it is essential to us and to those within our world who either do not see, or are not being heard.
It all starts with a Poet...and it has.
We are 100 Thousand and more...
...............for FREEING Mohammad Ibn Al Ajami!!!!!!!
The above video was recited at 100 TPC Spring Forward, words by Poet Antonieta Villamil.
To sign a petition to urge for release of Poet Mohammed Ibn Al Ajami, please visit this site: http://act.rootsaction.org/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=7041
We need to see our Poet free!!!
Share the above link and publicize this treachery so that together, we can overturn the courts and release our Poet from imprisonment!
I encourage you all to use your voice and pen together, as it is a blessing (which we take for granted) to be able to speak out for change in the areas dear to us and take action towards true change.
Let's not stop the fight for Mohammed Ibn Al Ajami!
WRITE ON! WRITE NOW! BE HEARD!
Peace to you all.
Jessica M. Wilson
