About this item

we are the boat / returning to dock / we are the footprints / on the northern trail / we are the iron / coloring the soil / we cannot / be erasedfrom Refugee"Remi Kanazi's poetry presents an unflinching look at the lives of Palestinians under occupation and as refugees scattered across the globe. He captures the Palestinian people's stubborn refusal to be erased, gives voice to the ongoing struggle for liberation, and explores the meaning of international solidarity.In this latest collection, Kanazi expands his focus outside the sphere of Palestine and presents pieces examining racism in America, police brutality, US militarism at home and wars abroad, conflict voyeurism, Islamophobia, and a range of other issues.

Praise for Remi Kanazi's Poetic Injustice:

"Read his words out loud for yourself and your friends. Let their compassionate anger, their intricate dance of ideas, their unflinching witness, watch over you, dance with you, pick you up, and spur you to action."?Ali Abunimah, co-founder ofElectronic Intifada and author of The Battle for Justice in Palestine

"There is more truth, and perhaps finally more news, in Remi Kanazi's poems than the pages of your daily newspaper or the sterile reports flash across your screens."?Chris Hedges, Pulitzer Prize winner

"Repression creates resistance. It also generates beautiful artistic works, which become a cultural weapon in the struggle for the realization of dreams. This book of poems is a shining example of tomorrow's Palestine."?Ronnie Kasrils, former African National Congress activist and South African government minister
