Perseguidos Por El Rey/ Persecuted by the King

        José dándose  cuenta que la sagrada familia corría peligro realiza un
plan de escape, reuniendo sus pocas cosas de valor hacen una lista de
lo necesario, y con su esposa María  preparan el pequeño equipaje.
Cubiertos por el manto de la noche salen de su casa, deben de dejar la
cuna que José fabrico con tanto cuidado y amor para el bello niño.

Another World Defined by Community - Not Corporations

The empty buildings stood, eyes covered in plywood glasses, cast down. Their clapboard, stucco and brick arms, bound by eviction, foreclosure sale and demolition notices.

A small group of poverty and indigenous scholars from POOR Magazine, bleeding internally from our own wounds of eviction, landlessness, budget genocide, racism, po-lice brutality, incarceration and violence arrived in Detroit on a hot Saturday in June to attend the US Social Forum and Allied Media Conference.

ANARCHY AND REVOLUTION R US, PART 1:  A REVIEW FOR THE REVOLUTION

By Thornton Kimes

 

We recently published what others call a “white paper” on the necessity of giving up reliance on other people, chiefly the Po’Lice, to solve problems we can and should deal with ourselves.  That is nested inside a bigger necessity:  how do we change the world from one where people are exploited, or exploiters, into one where that doesn’t happen?

Ronald McDonald House Poetry

Our Indigenous Peoples Media Coordinator Our Indigenous Peoples Media Coordinator, Mari V. went to Denver with a group called the Visionaries that is doing a community project with the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Denver. She along with Marjorie Davis, and Louis Chapoose (White River Ute) held Art and Spoken Word workshops. The Spoken Word Workshops are based on POOR Magazine’s curriculum of the Slam Bio. The youth also recorded their poetry pieces and make a spoken word CD.

Slam Bios are short versions of a poet’s biography

People's Skool Summer 2010

by Libah Sheppard

I am not a violent woman, not an angry woman, nor am I a vicious woman, as a matter fact I am a spiritual woman guided by:  God, Allah, Jehovah, Jah, Creator, Dios, Most High.  Channeled by my ancestors to spiritually do the right thing, but in 1992 I was going to kill my Father that’s right I was going to blow his Mother Fuckin' Head off.
