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.
Alex Getachew, a noted community activist will join us live to provide commentary and share additional context for the discussion. So please join us for a stimulating evening of great poetry and dialogue!
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?
Dr. Harris & Dr. Kennedy Discuss Police Protest Tomorrow In Mississippi Fresno
The last time we talked to Alex Schaefer, he was getting arrested for chalking the sidewalks outside of thieving banks or doing plein air paintings of them, but with flames coming out of their windows. He also was building a huge Monopoly Man puppet for the Rose Parade. Alex is still painting and protesting, but with a whole new twist.
Talkupy with Annie Lindstrom welcomes Alex to the show on Thursday, Nov. 20 at 2 pm ET. We'll talk about his latest work including joining with the Blackstone Gallery and with a bunch of artists to do 100 plein air paintings of 100 LA's buildings & streetscapes in a month and sell the paintings to the public at the end of the challenge. He's also helping to put the finishing touches on a film by Luke Homay Lewis starring himself and friend Chris Hernandez -- Alex and Chris Paint the USA. We'll also talk to Alex about his latest protest character, Zirp the US Economy Clown, who spreads Democracy American style.

National Day of Protest in Ferguson: CD Witherspoon on the Ground following the murder of Mike Brown by Officer Daren Wilson.
In this episode of Independence Nation, Keith A. Pitts, MSE will discuss the coming protest disaster setting stage in Ferguson, MO. What was planned for the Occupy Wallstreet protesters will happen in Ferguson. An identified [DELETED] as of October planned to engage in sniper attacks against protestors (sic) in Houston, Texas if deemed necessary. An identified [DELETED] had received intelligence that indicated the protesters in New York and Seattle planned similar protests in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio and Austin, Texas. [DELETED] planned to gather intelligence against the leaders of the protest groups and obtain photographs, then formulate a plan to kill the leadership via suppressed sniper rifles. (Note: protests continued throughout the weekend with approximately 6000 persons in NYC. ‘Occupy Wall Street’ protests have spread to about half of all states in the US, over a dozen European and Asian cities, including protests in Cleveland (10/6-8/11) at Willard Park which was initially attended by hundreds of protesters.)
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?
