Out Now! 'SLAVES OF US '|
First reading: january 28, ABC Treehouse, Amsterdam
All should be equal. But we're not. Sure, we are on top of the world. Us, the west. Or better, the powers that be, to cut it short. After all, who cares about how the pie is being devided, but a few activists, a handfull of rebel writers and artists? Often they seem a far cry in a deaf world.
But what about those who seek refuge, seek help, food, shelter, peace? Prisoners, tortured, molested. Women, raped, abused, circumcized. Children, used, beaten, traumatized. And what about all those workers that feed our economy until we're done with them? What about them? What about those Slaves Of Us?
This about sums it up, what this book of poetry is all about. Some may not want to listen to what I have to say, but that's just too bad: I'm going to say it anyway, to all of you out there; politicians, machos, opressors, businessmen, right wing radicals, whether you like it or not.
To those who don't need telling, this is to say: keep the spirit of protest alive!
Slaves Of Us contains except for the title poem Slaves Of Us a.o. Stop Deportations, The Right To Speak, Salt, Diss To The Pointless Self, Cave Canem, Women Of The West and The Mouse and has been published by Het Zinkend Schip.
