SORT BY Relevancy
Protest poetry takes on many different forms, yet one aspect remains constant; this style of poetry aims to share a specific message about an issue that is important to the writer. Usually, these poems address social or political issues and are designed to spur dialogue and examination, release creative tension or frustration or in many instances, challenge the status quo on the particular issue or concern. For example, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., led a revolutionary nonviolent protest movement that called upon the nation to end the centuries-old racist and unjust treatment against African-Americans. Poets, before, during and after this era demonstrated through their work the requisite power and much-needed determination to call for long lasting change. More importantly, society still needs poets to draw attention to current and ongoing issues as well as to call the audience to action. So poets, call-in and share poetry or thoughts about issues that matter to you.

The country been engaged in peaceful protest for the injustice of Eric Garner and Michael Brown. Police brutality is happening so much in this nation to the point it's a everyday occurence. Our elected officials stay quiet while the country is angry and want change in police culture. Will the protest work? Will we see change with police?

The majority of the Planning Commissioners today voted to approve the observation deck. The Planning Staff and the developers' representatives denied knowing about the DEP investigation. They claimed they used a certified cutter and that mostly what they cut were vines and Brazilian Pepper. Not true. But as usual, citizens are not allowed to rebut. Only developers, their spokespeople, and planning staff are. I presented evidence, including my documented phone call to the DEP, about the site. The other thing I learned--and I am appalled by this--is that our planning staff did not visit the site prior to deciding to approve the observation deck. How can you approve something for a sensitive conservation easement and never visit it prior to making your decision? That is poor practice, in my opinion. I stated that the DEP rep told me that citizens' concerns were "legitimate" and that the mangrove cutting at the site had "exceeded the limits of the scope of the general permit." I had heard that weeks ago Commissioner Chappie had been informed about the cutting and the dEP inquiry, and I have an email from a Palma Sola resident to the DEP rep in which she tells the rep to send documentation to Chappie when it is ready.http://www.thebradentontimes.com/news/2015/01/15/opinion/developer_s_dock_request_looks_like_two_step_circumvention_of_mangrove_policy/
Forced Vaccine Petition, More Whole Foods Protest, Vegan Chocolate Milk
Church pastors across the country have taken their congregations to the streets to stop traffic in protest of the decision in the choking death of Eric Garner in New York. People across the world have engaged in protest demonstrations, holding up signs saying "I Can't Breathe". Prominent sports figures are publicly wearing T Shirts that say "I Can't Breathe", the famous last words of Eric Garner. On Sunday members have been asked to wear all black, a sign of mourning for those unjustly killed by police. Strong symbols of solidarity with the families of the slain young men, but what do we do next? What legislation needs to be passed to actually stop the killing - not just march in protest of it? How do we REMOVE officers from the police force who commit murder? How about a law that states police officers must live in the NEIGHBORHOOD that they police, and must study the poll sheets and know their neighbors personally? Police officers: If the intention is really to serve and protect, unless you personally know the people you're protecting, you're really just harassing innocent citizens in order to meet an arrest quota. What laws and guidelines need to be put in place to train police as public safety officials and not trained killers?
