The legacy of the poets between the two World Wars made the poets raise their voices in protest against senseless killings. They told the world that no one has the right to sow hatred and animosity to reap sufferings, separations, and deaths.
During wars, children, women, and elders are the worst affected. It’s a gross violation of Human Rights. The world cannot afford any more genocides.
The use of chemical weapons in Syria, killing innocent children and families, must stop. It’s a dangerous precedent in the theater of warfare.
We, in Different Truths, ask our poet friends to come together and express their solidarity for the defenseless and the weak people.
We, in Different Truths, are bringing out an anthology on People against Genocide. Michele Baron, an eminent poet, humanist and peace activist, from Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, and Roula Pollard, another renowned poet, pacifist and social activist, from Athens, Greece, are the Editors of this anthology.
We are honoured and privileged to have them as our Anthology Editors.
