Dear Friends of 100 Thousand Poets for Change,
Please find below an extremely important petition, “LIFE IN PRISON FOR A POEM”, that Terri and I and Pina Piccolo (100 Thousand Poets for Change-Bologna, Italy) have been working on with friends.
As poets and artists we have a personal stake in seeing this poet released from prison. His persecution is the persecution of all poets and we feel this is something we can’t stand by and watch without taking immediate action.
We are very excited by the broad community support we have received thus far and it would be a great honor to have you join us in support of this action by signing the petition and forwarding it to like-minded friends.
Thank you for all you do!
Peace and love,
Michael Rothenberg and Terri Carrion
