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
Voice of Rebellion Radio out of Stay Bold Radio responds to the denial of Al Suarez's membership into the Student Government Association of Ybor campus Hillsborough Community College in Tampa. Al has gone to this College since 2013, and experienced discrimination for this activism. We will go over cases of where students have been suspended, maltreated or discriminated against for their activism. We suspect Dr. Robinson (who's image is shown on the show) campus president is behind the decision inspite of promises by the Dean to Al. Dr. Robinson sent security on Al for showing up to his own radio studios on campus and had him unjustly temporarily suspended for speaking out once on the air and for a College paper article. Al returned and was banned a semester from College media. He still takes part in HCC clubs and committees. Chris Jay the co host in his high school had experienced similar things. We will be accepting callers. We hope to bring awareness and show how to fight such discrimination as our tax dollars pay for these schools that violate our free speech. The program will be 2 hours starting at 8pm eastern.
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?
Who are the Dallas 6?
At SCI Dallas (PA), after a series of abuses at the hands of corrections officials, some prisoners housed in the solitary confinement unit decided they had enough and decided to stage a protest in response to the inhumane conditions and mistreatment of prisoners. They decided it was time to do something about the inhumane conditions, immediately, before another prisoner dies or is brutally harmed. Each prisoner involved in the protest is now collectively referred to as the Dallas 6. They are Andre Jacobs, Anthony Locke, Anthony Kelly, Carrington Keys, Duane Peters and Derrick Stanley. On April 28th 2010, prisoner Isaac Sanchez was subjected to a planned attack by the Restrictive Housing Unit (RHU) staff, forcibly removed from his cell and brutally beaten by officers in riot gear. Sanchez was subject to this attack as a result of speaking out against the abuse at Dallas prison on behalf of his fellow comrades. After being told they were next, Dallas 6 barricaded themselves in for protection and covered their cell windows. They asked for outside intervention but instead were beaten, electroshocked and peppersprayed. They filed complaints against the DOC and 3 months later, in retaliation, they were charged with riot. As revealed in the Human Rights report, there has long been a policy within the prison walls of Dallas and the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections (DOC) to operate a corrupt administration under an iron wall of silence. The DOC, State Police, DA's office work in conjunction to railroad these men. On August 24th, 2015, these men are facing trial for these bogus charges. There is a campaign underway to dismiss the please visit scidallas6.blogspot.com for more information
