America's best read urban weekly | Learn More »
I have to admit that I get discouraged by people who put down protestors, or say that protestors are wasting their time and no one is going to hear them. As if doing nothing is more noble than doing something.
Peaceful protest is an essential part of the human experience.
I really enjoyed this article. I think everyone who attends the weekly poetry slams is thankful for Mark´s leadership. Because he organizes these events, the poets and audience members feel like they have found community. I´m not a poet, but the wednesday night crowd at Neato Burrito made me feel safe enough to try reading out loud a short poem I wrote. Everyone is welcome.
