Oaxaca, The Face of Mexican Facism - Post From Oaxaca Solidarity Network - Los Olvidados

Oaxaca, La cara del fascismo mexicano, miercoles el 28 de marzo de 2007
Oaxaca, The face of Mexican fascism, Wednesday 28 March 2007

Do not be fooled by the total absence of news in the corporate media into believing that Oaxaca City is once again a tranquil, beautiful tourist destination. The dirty war of terror by the Oaxaca state government and the federal forces continues in their futile effort to crush the popular movement. The governments are terrified by the unarmed people, as is obvious by the constant display of heavily armed troops and police all around the supposedly public city center, the zócalo. The effort to account for every captive, and to free every political prisoner, is ongoing. I'm glad to assist the Oaxaca Solidarity Network by circulating their appeals.

"Los Olividados/The Forgotten Ones"—Ongoing Oaxaca Solidarity/EDUCACampaign for the release of political prisoners

Edgar Molina—who describes himself as "a son, brother, husband, father, and a vendor at the Oaxaca City bus station"—was arbitrarily and violently detained on November 25 last year after participating in a non-violent protest march. His friend, Felipe Sánchez—profiled in our first "Olvidados" urgent action—was arrested along with his friend Edgar, but has since been released from jail. While meeting with Felipe this morning, he expressed his serious concern for his friend Edgar, and for all the other 44 Oaxacan political prisoners who remain in jail.

In his attached testimony, Edgar tells the painful story of his arrest, torture and ongoing detention. Edgar is a father to two girls—one born just months before his arrest.


Please help us see Edgar, and ALL the political prisoners, freed. Send faxes and make phone calls to the government officials listed below, demanding the immediate and unconditional release of Oaxacan political prisoners, most of whom have been imprisoned since November, badly beaten, and in some cases tortured. Please see details on recommended actions, and addresses below in the WHAT YOU CAN DO section…

Brief Background on our campaign: In response to the pleas for help of the Oaxacan political prisoners that remain imprisoned, and in solidarity with those Forgotten Ones—"Los Olvidados"—OSN is partnering with local grassroots organization EDUCA (Services for an Alternative Education), and a number of other Oaxacan human rights and other grassroots organizations in a campaign to press for the immediate, unconditional release of all political prisoners. We'll be sending out profiles of individual political prisoners each week, highlighting the cases of individuals—but always demanding the release of ALL prisoners of conscience.
GOOD NEWS! Juan Carlos Ruiz Mendoza, the political prisoner profiled in our urgent action was freed last week, along with two other prisoners from Tlacolula Prison!!! And as many of you know, Felipe Sánchez (subject of our first "Olvidados" urgent action) has also been released. A warm thanks to all of you who may have played a part in making their release a reality!
Background on Oaxacan Political Prisoners: As of today, 44 political prisoners remain illegally imprisoned in various prisons throughout the state of Oaxaca. Many of them were detained while participating in non-violent protests against the current repressive government of Oaxacan Gov.Ulises Ruiz. Others were not involved politically in any way, but were caught up in a wave of massive detentions carried out by state and federal police in an attempt to crush a popular movement that is using non-violent tactics to demand political change.

Local and national human rights organizations, as well as the Oaxaca Solidarity Network (OSN), have recorded many testimonies of people who were brutalized during their illegal arrests. Most of the detainees aren't directly connected with popular organizations; hence they lack the support that helped many other political prisoners to win their release. Many of them recently reported that they feel forgotten and are fighting despair.
· Contact your local representatives and Mexican consuls and inform them of your concern about Edgar Molina and the other "Olvidados" political prisoners. Ask them to contact local Mexican consuls and national Mexican authorities (listed below).
Please also send appeals to official addresses below (by fax is most effective) to arrive as quickly as possible, in Spanish or your own language, making the following points:
1. Members of the recent Oaxaca Solidarity Network/Rights Action Emergency Human Rights Delegation can point out that they recently heard repeated testimonies of torture, forced confessions, and arbitrary detentions, and that they demand the immediate release of all political prisoners.
2. Express your concern for the well-being of Edgar Molina, and all other Oaxacan political prisoners.
3. Call for a prompt, impartial and thorough investigation into the illegal detentions of people engaged in peaceful protest, for findings to be published, and for those responsible to be brought to justice.
4. Remind the authorities that they have a duty to carry out an independent and impartial investigation into the alleged fabrication of charges against political prisoners, with the results to be made public.


· A fundamental element to work in favor of global justice, equality and the environment is to fund and support local organizations that are leading their own struggles in defense and promotion of development, the environment and human rights.
· Get involved in education and activism work in your home community concerning the negative impacts of North American investors and hydro-electric and mining policies on community-controlled development, the environment and the human rights of local populations in Oaxaca.
· Consider coming in on one of OSN's Human Rights/Educational-Activist Delegations and meet with victims of the repression, local human rights groups, leaders of the popular movement, local political and business leaders, and to visit local indigenous communities to learn about vital social, economic and political issues.
· Invite us to give educational presentations in your home community.
· Get on our e-mail list and visit our website for news updates, delegation announcements and more.

¡Sí se puede! Spring 2006, millions of different voices speaking as one. One
mighty movement extending over thousands of miles, marching last spring on
different days in different cities focused on the same goals—defeat HR 4437
and let America know the sleeping giant is awake and striding for freedom. One
day we were marching through downtown Chicago, the next down César Chávez
Avenue in Los Angeles, on another we were descending on our state capitol in
Sacramento, and on another on our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C.
Our movement was fueled by waves of school walkouts. Young people leading the
way in countless cities and towns, no one can forget that feeling of power.
So many of us made the decision then and there, on a march, at a rally, in a
church or during a walkout to keep fighting for ourselves, our families, our
communities and to never accept less than full equality, complete dignity and
total respect.
Sí se puede—the words which gave our grandparents the hope and courage to
march with César Chávez became our battle cry for freedom.
¡Sí se puede! César Chávez would be so proud of us. The movement he helped
lead which began in the fields and factories to put food on our tables and to
give us union recognition, was reborn last spring as a powerful new Latina/o
youth-led civil rights movement. Our new movement unites immigrants with and
without papers and people of all races in a fight for equal rights and
benefits and for full citizenship rights for all.
¡Sí se puede! César Chávez lifted us from invisibility and filled us with
pride and dignity. His example taught us that when we organize on a mass basis
and fight we can win.
In 2000, a bill sponsored by Antonio Villaraigosa, now Mayor of L.A., made
César Chávez’s birthday, March 31, a statewide holiday. The holiday will be
celebrated this year on Friday, March 30. Several school districts, including
Oakland Unified and San Francisco Unified, and several schools including San
Diego’s year-round schools, are closed on Friday, March 30 in honor of the
holiday. State offices and many colleges and universities including UCLA will
also close on March 30.
The César Chávez holiday was specifically created to give students from
kindergarten through college the day off of school. Still, many schools,
including in Los Angeles (LAUSD, the largest Latina/o district in the nation) remain
open. It is our right and our duty to demand that every school in California
close to honor the Chávez holiday. March 30 is our day to march in every city
in California.
Our movement must demand that every school, college campus, every government
office, and business follow the letter and spirit of the law and close in
honor of the Chávez holiday. The only meaningful way to honor the work of César
Chávez is to adopt his method of mass struggle for justice and equality as
our own.
Marching on the Chávez holiday will revitalize and strengthen our new civil
rights movement and provide us with the power we need to build on our gains.
Our mass actions, in particular the waves of mass student walkouts last
spring, achieved important immediate victories and continue to have a profound
impact on the political life of our state and nation. Our huge and historic
national mobilizations defeated many of HR 4437’s most reactionary provisions. The
state takeover of the Oakland schools and the attempted mayoral takeover of
LAUSD suffered real setbacks because of our mobilizations.
Our fight for equal educational opportunities requires students, teachers and
the community to have democratic control over our schools. UCLA, which for
ten years has arrogantly allowed the number of Latina/o and black students to
drop to pitiful and insulting levels, announced a new admissions system this
year in the wake of L.A. and Orange County school walkouts. Continuing our
struggle can reverse the damage done by the anti-affirmative action Prop 209
throughout our state.
Despite our gains, the raids go on. Police harassment and all forms of
discrimination persist. A new guest-worker bill threatens to assign many of us to
permanent second-class citizenship. New immigration laws and restrictions are
already in the works. In Mexico, our brothers and sisters fighting in Oaxaca
need us to build and make more powerful our new civil rights movement so they
can achieve victory.
Sí se puede. The sleeping giant has awoken. It is time to start moving

On Friday March 30, we close our schools and march to honor California’s
César Chávez Holiday. A year ago, we closed our schools and marched to defeat an
unjust law, HR4437. This year, we close our schools and march to enforce the
spirit and letter of a just law declaring César Chávez birthday a school
holiday in California.
When we take to the streets on Friday, March 30th, we will reassert the power
of the new civil rights movement we are building and give living expression
to the heartfelt pride and dignity of the Latina(o) communities. A year after
the struggle to defend immigrant rights gave rise to the biggest and
potentially most powerful civil rights movement in more than 100 years, it is up to
us to keep the movement alive and to provide the leadership needed to
increase the power of our movement.
On Saturday, March 31, and Sunday, April 1, the weekend following our
statewide Chávez day actions, the young leaders who have been organizing our mass
actions will come together in Los Angeles for a conference. The conference
sponsored by BAMN is being organized to develop, consolidate, and build the
collective leadership of our new civil rights movement. The movement’s ability to
become stronger and bolder relies on our building a more politically
conscious and accountable leadership. The conference of the new civil rights
movement will give the young leaders of the movement an opportunity to discuss and
draw out the lessons we have learned from the struggles we have led so that we
can chart a course for our future.
The birth of the new civil rights movement was not the brainchild of a single
great woman or man. The politics of our movement – our demand for equality,
our assertion of pride in being Mexican, Salvadorian, etc., in being
Latina(o), black, Asian, or Arab, our growing resistance to any form of harassment or
mistreatment, our unrelenting struggle for full citizenship rights whether
or not we have papers, and our determination to be treated with respect and
dignity by all — are the battle cry of a people striding towards freedom. Our
leaders, the people who led the walkouts, marches, boycotts and rallies, are
humble and modest. Many would not call themselves leaders or are not conscious
of their role as leaders.
The students who scaled the school walls and led our marches past principals,
police, and politicians are our real heroes and leaders. Shy, quiet students
who spent countless hours organizing on Myspace and over the internet are
the anonymous but crucial leaders of our movement. Women and men who work
countless hours in the factories and the fields and who organized co-workers and
relatives to stay home and boycott are the leaders of our mighty struggle for
dignity and respect.
For our new movement to grow, we do not need a single great leader to emerge
or be anointed. We need some of our leaders to recognize that they are
leaders and to step forward and guide the development and political direction of
our movement. To take the next step forward, our leaders need to become
organized and better politically educated, and to learn how to function as a single,
integrated, collective leadership.
On March 31-April 1, we will have a great deal to discuss. The Conference of
the New Civil Rights Movement will be organized to give the leaders of our
young and powerful movement a maximum opportunity to learn the political method
and practical skills needed to broaden and deepen our movement.
We have the power to win. With a conscious leadership stepping forward to
organize our struggle, victory awaits us.
Close down the schools on Friday March 30th. March to honor César Chávez
Holiday. Attend the Conference of the New Civil Rights Movement of March 31st
and April 1st. Become a part of the collective leadership needed to win.

Free Radio Stephen Dunifer Speaking At Anarchist Bookfair On Radio and Oaxaca

Stephen Dunifer - Free Radio dot Org

Stephen Dunifer spoke on 3-17-07 at the 12th annual Anarchist Bookfair in San Francisco.

Stephen Dunifer is the founder of Free Radio Berkeley in Berkeley, California. Free Radio Berkeley, an unlicensed micropower pirate radio station, was involved in a protracted legal case with the Federal Communications Commission in the mid-1990s They were eventually acquitted of all charges, marking a major victory for micropower radio. FRB eventually stopped broadcasting and turned all their resources to developing new micropower technology and training activists in the use of pirate radio. They were replaced on the dial by Berkeley Liberation Radio, which has also been a target of the federal government. Stephen Dunifer is also author of several books on the micropower movement. He was coeditor along with Ron Sakolsky of Seizing the Airwaves. Stephen Dunifer offers a variety of radio broadcast kits and accessories for sale through his Freedradio website.
In this talk he discusses "Autonomy and Radio in Oaxaca", an overview of the importance and role of radio broadcasting in the struggle for autonomy in Oaxaca, Mexico. He also spoke about TUPA (Transmitters Uniting the People's of the Americas), which was created by Free Radio Berkeley and exists to empower indigenous, campesino, and barrio communities in the Americas with the tools, technology, knowledge and skills to build and maintain their own community broadcast stations.

Lorna Dee Cervantes On "Poem For the Young White Man Who Asked Me How I, An Intelligent Well-Read Person Could Believe In the War Between Races"

Everything you ever wanted to know about my "Poem for the Young White Man ..." yahdayahdayahda but were too polite to bug me about is now to be found on my other blog, the decidedly too self-promo blog now revived after a one year dormancy at Lorna Dice where I tell some stories about the poem - and unmask the Young White Man.

Lorna Dee's CV

A partially updated CV is now up at my "Lorna Dice" blog site. Sorry, but it's 28 pages single-spaced, and Blogger didn't keep the formatting - or I couldn't figure it out. But, at least it's up.

I Feel Like This Bird

Bald Eagle Stealing From Golden

Top Ten Things I Love and Hate About the AWP Conference

10. All the people! SHEESH. There's no way to see it all and see 'em all. Just no way, so don't even try. Some people I really tried to see: most po' bloggers, Jessica Smith, Alison Stine, Charles, you? Some great people I met: Bill Allegrezza, people from Fresno, my favorite poets from a new anthology of new Latina/o poets, Jonah from Oregon, the "bubble poet" blowing bubbles in the bookfair, Kristy Bowen, among them. I saw Peter Perreira as he was on his way to another off-site reading. Wow, is that guy ever handsome! And, such a fine poet.

9. Marking my program with all the panels I end up not being able to attend because I (a.) oversleep; (b.) can't decide which I want to run to first, so go downstairs and get a strong tea instead; (c.) decide, what the heck, and talk to x---- in the hallway instead.

8. All the new food you get turned onto ("She Crab Soup").

7. The open mike. This year it was great; variety of voices. I really enjoyed a lot of what I heard.

6. The panels. This year I went to the old fogies panel. I really liked what I heard, the poems and the thoughts. An early influence, Diane Wakoski was there reading from a new unpublished book. It's hard to think of her looking for a publisher. How I love all those Black Sparrow books in their fine vellum wrappers. She was exceptionally fine.

5. Recognizing poets waiting for the elevator. Ed H, Stanley P, Coleman B, Yusef K, Al Y....

4. Running into old friends waiting for the elevator; and the ensuing connections and projects: Rosemary Catacalos and John Crawford from West End Press (one of the favorite people in the world). Hated, that there's never enough time; but what time there is is just enough.

3. My panel. This year organized by Wendy Barker with Alicia Ostriker and Kimiko Hahn. Ralph Black wrote a new poem for it that was just a knock-out beauty, and, political. It was all very inspiring and definitely the high-light. I hate having to wait for the end of the conference to present; nervewracking.

2. All the off-site readings. The ones I wanted to attend I had to miss., like the Pussy-Po women's mike night that wednesday before the conference, and all the ones scheduled during the Con Tinta Event. There was no way I could miss that, especially honoring Puerto Rican poet and prof, Judith Ortiz Cofer. Besides, there was no way I could miss the fantastic reading with all the poets from the new anthology assembled. I wrote a blurb for the work, which was only the last sentence of the paragraph I wrote. I could have gone on for pages, too. The anthology is really solid. I had to miss the big Split Rock reading as my stomach was starting to act-up (all the great tasting but bad for my ulcer appetizers at the Con Tinta event) and I wrote my talk that I delivered the next morning instead. Also, loved the Tucson reading with Diane Delgado, one of the more excellent new poets who should have been in that anthology. I liked hearing the Tucson writers, good variety and energy.

1. THE BOOKFAIR! I LOVE bookfairs! I especially love the AWP bookfair. I love buying books at the fair. I miss not having a table to hang out at. I miss not being a publisher. I love talking to publishers, and editors, and people who just love bookfairs. I love all the new people. I love all the old people. I love the great deals I got at the fair, and the giveaways! I hate having to schlep heavy books home. I hate spending several hundred dollars in cash before realizing that I should have gotten receipts for taxes; I know small press people, in particular, can really use cash at bookfairs. I hate not having nearly enough time to spend at the bookfair. I only ended up going through a fraction of it. I love talking to every table (ugh, except for the religious books). I love all the connections I make. And, gotta say it, I love being recognized moseying through a bookfair.

Look for me at the Bay Area Anarchist BookFair in San Francisco Golden Gate Park this weekend, March 17-18. You can find me near the Free Radio Berkeley / Project TUPA table. And, at the Denver Zine Fest where I'll be writing you original, spontaneous and personalized poems in exchange for a donation to Free Radio Project TUPA.

"Unconscious Mutterings #214 On 3/12/07"

  1. Contribution :: of the angels, dust devils,

  2. Ryan :: Seacrest on another show, the base

  3. Minimal :: democracy washing its face, cat

  4. Cleansed :: and prickly. The stiff white center

  5. Centered :: on a prick and dime, the narrow

  6. Arrow :: of public display, the dismay of public politicians

  7. Beyond :: the fold of a wad. Come and let us

  8. Execute :: the symbol, defeat the loop of a single song, the native

  9. Intuition :: and the gaze. Come and let us weave again an

  10. Apology :: a single voice from many tongues; an end.

* Vote for your own intuition. Raise your synaptic hands subliminally at La Luna Nina's.

"Unconscious Mutterings #213 On 3/12/07"

  1. Nude :: to the very forehead of desire, shy

  2. Support :: of a flailing heart, the wan

  3. Rachel:: in the sun-split screen, the long

  4. Crane :: in the fine wine mug shot, a single

  5. Candy bar :: marking the way, a wayward

  6. Material :: wrapper, the fine print of the the thumb. Play me your

  7. Mind games :: Snap the bubble of my limits, the possible

  8. Eviction :: from the farce. Cellophane to ice crisp creek. Come and

  9. Produce :: the bounty of the bed, the sudden

  10. Joke :: This next stance is you.

* Be the mana in your own field, the Maná on the radio of your own mind - Cruise it at La Luna Nina.

"Don't Mourn. Radioize!" Lorna Dee's Paper Delivered at the AWP

"Don't Mourn. Radioize!"

Poetry makes nothing happen -- People do. Poetry is not politics. Politics is not poetry. Politics is not what you write or say, it's what you do. Do it. Do it and what you do will infuse and instigate.

Poetry is not a weapon. Poetry is a way of vision, the most potent and powerful tool there is, just one small part of a process and the one most easily afforded. Poetry, instigated and infused with political action, allows one to write in a language of discovery and not just in rhetorical verses of terse nonsense that make nothing happen.

And there is much that is happening.

And there is much to do. In a world fraught with political peril, a planet in the process of collapsing in on itself due to perilous politics and a distinctive lack of vision, it's as the Borinquen Nuyorican poet, Pedro Pietri, used to say, it's poetry or suicide -- mass suicide without the mass of poetry and the politicized masses.

So, what to do? Don't mourn. Radioize. For the past couple of months I've been involved in the Free Radio movement. Pioneered in the early 90s by Stephen Dunifer of Free Radio Berkeley who would roam the Berkeley hills with a radio transmitter he designed and built, about the size of a six-pack -- with the FCC far in pursuit, Free Radio Berkeley managed to stay on the air for years until a court injunction slapped Stephen with a $10,000 personal fine -- for violating the rights of the rich and privileged to monopolize our airwaves and own our right to peaceful assembly -- on air; for free; in the privacy of our own homes. Free radio is currently involved with Project TUPA. Named after a Mixtec god from Oaxaca, a spirit of the mountains and forests which seemed to fit the "ethereal nature of radio waves," TUPA stands for Transmitters Uniting the Peoples of the Américas. They help to empower people in impoverished communities by offering free and low-cost workshops training people to assemble and maintain their own low-watt radio and television stations in places such as Haiti, Brazil, Venezuela, Chiapas and Oaxaca where last fall a young U.S. journalist, and ex-Boulderite, Brad Will was shot to death while documenting abuses and violent repression against teachers and others protesting a government they feel is corrupt.

My latest book, DRIVE: The First Quartet, opens with a highly unpublishable poem, "Coffee", about the massacre of 45 mostly women and children in Chiapas, in a place called Acteal. Yes, highly unpublishable. I know this. But what I did not know is that it is also an "unairable" poem, even on public radio, even on Democracy Now for which a public reading of it was taped for broadcast until I got to a certain line, naming and criticizing the government (oops, I meant to say the transnational corporate oligarchy) [sings: "N-E-S-T-L-E-S! Nestles makes the very best ... MURDER!"] when David Barsamian and the producer just removed their headsets and shook their heads at each other. It never aired. The poem was presented to about 6,000 assembled under a giant tent at the Dodge Poetry Festival and recorded by Bill Moyers crew -- which appeared on television in a curiously and severely edited and spliced together video version of the original which makes is appear as if I advocate violent revolution. I do not.

I am not a political poet. I am a politicized poet, which is to say, not a drunk or a suicide. As I said in an AWP panel last year on (what else?) the Chicana/o poet and politics, I said that one of these days, one of these years, I will be invited to a conference such as this to speak about "the line" in poetry, and started to cry.

I'm 52 years old. I started at age 8, after being inspired by something I heard on the radio, public radio. That's a lot of lines under someone's thumb. I urge you today -- to do it. Go out and buy someone's book of poetry. Go out today and write some lines. Freely. Openly. And with integrity, the greatest asset a poet can own. And, as I always tell my students, do what is the first, but not sole order of poetry, as one of my favorite poets and philosophers, Joan Armatrading sang it: Show some emotion. E - motion. That wordless state which follows any action. Act. And say. And, do it on air. Sign up for a 4-day summer workshop in Oakland, or bring the workshop to your own communities and for $200 you can learn how to build your own micro-watt radio transmitter and antenna good for broadcasting 10-25 miles or more depending upon the height of the antenna. Let a thousand stations blossom. After all, we are living in a state of emergency. Or, build one and donate it to an impoverished indigenous community. For what greater gift can you give than to help give voice to the voiceless?

And, if not, do what I do. If you can't do, pay. I'm collecting whatever you can donate today to Project TUPA and Free Radio. They need a mere $2,500 to $3,000 to build another 25 radio stations in Mexico. Give what you can now and receive my latest book, my latest "unpublishable" poem. Go to and and donate online or send a tax deductible check to Project TUPA/ Global Exchange. Or visit my blog for more information and links. Let me know if you do and I'll send you my book. Donate $200 or more and I'll send you a copy of my 200 page manuscript of new and selected love poems (sure to be a rare collector's item) and 7 cds of love songs. For what can be more political or more politicized than love? Or, more revolutionary.

Now, I'd like to close with one of the most political poems I've ever written. It's a love poem entitled, "Nothing Lasts."

Nothing Lasts

Only the land lasts, not you.
Only your steps upon it, the cut
glass of memory and your smile within
it survives. Only the land lasts; simple rock
and the dumb scape of lusting lack,
the rack and pinion of flight and fall.
Autumn doesn't last. Not spring
with all its fine tithings. Not the shine
of those young girls' hair, not the waists
of women, not the fading fire. Not you
and the way we were. Only the land
lasts, and the ridges of waiting wearing
out the pursed lips of furrowed ranges,
and not the cold within their lair. Only
the stunned shale, the red-faced cliffs,
the heights where someone sometime ascended
and stood, and loved, the land layering there
laid out out in its full affair, the glinting
mica and the dream of hard brooding diamonds,
all the hidden glory, the unseen flake
of gold and petrified burl. Not this
hand stroking life into an empty palm,
the smooth skin of summer, the sudden
skim of a wayward glance. Nothing of you
or the lonelier retreat of other
killer mammals and their heat.
Nothing lasts but the land, not the water
or the tearing, not the creeks and the clearings,
not the withered heart nor the soiled clothing
of social graces, nor the mouthy flaring
of wondered disgrace. Nothing lasts of this house,
not the boards nor the worms nor the birds. Not
the words I use to slow it down and make it stick.
Nothing lasts like the red clouds on the day
of your passing, the wicked gassing
or the olvido. Nothing lasts but this sand
drained of your sea; this chisled frown
in the chipped flint, this skirting of canyon,
this flaw and filing, this grinding down
but lasting, the silk touch in a handhold,
in the holding out for the summit. Nothing
but the wounding in the craters, the uplift
and the gurgling lava; all the ways we read
a stone's hieroglyphics, the ore's heavy lead.
Were we to discover, we would uncover a myth,
the stories we tell to renew the pact
with this earth. This, love. Nothing lasts
but the land and our love
of it.

AWP Redux Re: Ad Nauseum

Returned from the AWP after airline hell. My flight was cancelled due to snow in Denver, then that one cancelled as it went through Chicago which cancelled a bunch of flights. So I had to try and fly back earlier stand-by, but no go as the airport was filled with people trying to get to Colorado to go skiing, besides AWP folk. I went up and down gate to gate schlepping all the heavy books I bought (like Silliman's latest tome) only to have to bed down at the local Econolodge and listen to planes all night. So, my ulcer started acting up and I ran out of po chai pills. At least this time I waited until the end of the conference before I started vomiting. I got in late last night, throwing up the whole way. I couldn't keep anything down for a couple of days, not food or water, and I had to cancel classes again today. Not good. But hard to leave the house when you're vomiting. Beside, just being physically wiped out. It was hard to stand. But po chai pills working their magic. And yerba mate tea. I'll be fine in no time.

More about the AWP soon. It's always good to see old friends and the strangers who are friends I haven't met yet. But I want to post my panel talk first. Meanwhile, good AWP links on Eduardo's blog. Anyone else?

The Tempest: An Interlude

"Hear my soul speak
The very instant that I saw you did
My heart fly to your service."

-- Shakespeare's The Tempest, [III.i.79]

AWP Panel on Poetry and Politics Tomorrow

I'm at the Hilton tonight (great Priceline deal) in Atlanta. Come find me. Tonight join us in celebrating the work of local Georgia poet, Judith Cofer, one of my favorite Borinquen poets, at the off-site Con Tinta event. And, come buy my book, DRIVE: The First Quartet, or exchange. My publisher, Wings Press, just signed a big contract with a major distributor - so no more book fairs and he's not here this year. Otherwise, I don't know if anyone is carrying them. Tomorrow morning, join me, Wendy Barker, Alicia Ostriker, Kimiko Hahn and others for a panel on poetry and politics.

Saturday, March 3
9:00 - 10:45

S111. Does Poetry Make Nothing Happen?: Politics and the Poet. (Wendy Barker, Ralph Black, Lorna Dee Cervantes, Kimiko Hahn, Alicia Ostriker, Kevin Clark) In a time when Earth's future seems in the balance, a poet may feel only, to quote W. S. Merwin, "another priest of ornaments." Yet poets have always witnessed and warned of crises-Homer, Chaucer, Blake, Whitman, Celan, Neruda, and Ahkmatova were all political poets. Our panelists will read from their own poems, and discuss the problems they face and the strategies they employ to address their concerns.

Listen to Lorna Dee Reading About Love On the Radio - Project TUPA & Free Radio With Stephen Dunifer

The KGNU radio show with Stevyn Ironfeather was downright fun. I really enjoyed meeting Stevyn and his wife at the station. It felt good to be around radio folk again. And, big coup, Stephen Dunifer of the Free Radio movement called in from Berkeley. You can listen in for a few weeks while this is archived as the Afternoon Sound Alternative, February 26, 1-4pm. You can download the whole show, I start around 1:45. Listen in and hear my prose piece on love and locura. I was channeling my inner Andre Codrescu. Then, listen to us talk about Project TUPA: Transmitters Uniting the Peoples of the Americas which desperately needs your donations now to fund this next round of workshops training teachers to build their own radio stations. Donate now and get free cds and books from me, Lorna Dee.
