Chris Brandt, Veronica Golos & Angelo Verga

In January 2003, at New York's 1199 Union Hall, poets Chris Brandt, Veronica Golos and Angelo Verga organized a huge outpouring of poetic protest against the Iraq war. Theirs was a voice of outrage, one that united their decades of activism with their finely honed craft, using the spoken word to focus resistance and conscience. They also traveled to events called by anti-war groups in New York and Massachusetts to read as fundraisers for those groups' organizing efforts. On April 10, the "Three Poets for Peace" reunite, as they continue their commitment to stop the "never ending wars" led by Washington and the Pentagon--made all the more urgent and timely by the uprisings in the Arab world.
