Remi Kanazi is one of those hard-hitting activist poets who speak from the heart and soul of their community, race, people, city, class or country, however one would describe the particular group that that poet is advocating to the rest of the world for. In the case of Remi, he has been a tireless spokesman for the rights of the Palestinian people. You might want to listen to what he had to say at Monkeywrench Books in Austin, Texas this past April 4th, 2011:


Here is a short bio of Remi from the video text:

Remi Kanazi - a poet, writer, and activist based in New York City. Poetic Injustice is the long-awaited release by this Palestinian-American poet and it is a diverse mix of unabashed resistance poems. Laced with searing indictments of occupation, ethnic cleansing, and war, Remi tackles some of the most important issues facing the world today.

Remi is also the editor of Poets For Palestine (Al Jisser Group, 2008). His political commentary has been featured by news outlets throughout the world, including Al Jazeera English, GRITtv with Laura Flanders, and BBC Radio. His poetry has taken him across North America, the UK, and the Middle East, and he recently appeared in the Palestine Festival of Literature as well as Poetry International. He is a recurring writer in residence and advisory board member for the Palestine Writing Workshop.

Remi is but one strong voice speaking out for our common humanity, for there are many others or the Palestinian freedom and justice movement would have died out long ago. Moreover, you can join your voice to the chorus.
