Writers Against War & Occupation In Afghanistan & Iraq

Writers Against War & Occupation In Afghanistan & Iraq

Split This Rock logoCalling all poets and writers to speak out for an end to the wars and occupations in Afghanistan and Iraq at a peaceful, permitted event at the White House. A minute of silence will be observed for each year of each war (16 minutes total), followed by our simultaneous reading of lines of poetry (probably lines from Whitman). We will end this brief action by chanting Stop Funding War. Wear a poem or a piece of a poem. Some poem signs will be available for those who want them. On the following day, some people will go to Congressional offices to hand out letters and visit staff; anyone who wishes to can join in.

Support is being provided by Split This Rock, Brenda Hillman, and Allison Hedge Coke.

For more information email,,, or call 202-787-5210.
