A PROTEST AGAINST WAR
This is a plea for peace, a protest against war on Iraq, against other "on-going wars", against the destruction of peace.
This is a group poem, made up of voices from poets of several countries around the world, asking for an end to this war: the world’s plea for peace. We cannot let this war happen; we cannot let this mass murder of our innocent soldiers of several countries and innocent civilians of Iraq, and of the world, suffer with the greed and insanity of some leaders.
"Once war was declared
I took my courage by both hands
and strangled it!"
French poet, 1900-1977,
fragment from the book FATRAS
