Two years ago 100 Thousand Poets for Change answered Michael Rothenberg’s call for poets around the world who wanted to lend their voices to a 1-day only reading for peace and sustainability of the planet. Last September 29 his call broadened; so who let the musicians in?
Can music change the world? Plato thought so; he banned them from the Republic. The FBI thought so; they stole Earth First activist Judy Bari’s fiddle—on Bob Dylan’s birthday, May 24, 1990, the day her car was bombed.
Pinochet’s junta thought so; 40 years ago they tortured and killed Chilean folk singer Victor Jara in the Estadio Chile on September 16, 1973, five days after the CIA-backed coup that overthrew President Salvador Allende.
The US State Department thought so; they seized Paul Robeson’s passport in 1950. The House Committee on Un-American Activities thought so; they declared Pete Seeger in contempt and blacklisted him on August 18, 1955 for
refusing to name names.The Grand Ol’ Opry thought so; they fired Hank Williams.
And Vladimir Putin thought so; he had Russian punk band members of Pussy Riot arrested, charged, tried, convicted and sentenced to two years in prison for a song prayer declared to be an “act of hooliganism.”
From Plato to Putin, musicians have been regarded as a danger and threat to change the social order.
We think so too—which is why we have answered poet Michael Rothenberg’s international call to join 100 Thousand Poets for Change he organized in 2011. “Peace & sustainability is a major concern worldwide, and the guiding principle for this global event,” said Michael Rothenberg, Co-Founder of 100 Thousand Poets for Change. “We are in a world where it isn’t just one issue that needs to be addressed. A common ground is built through this global compilation of local stories, which is how we create a true narrative for discourse to inform the future.”
More than 700 events in 115 countries have already been scheduled, including ours. So next Sunday evening walk right in to The Talking Stick, where The Times, They Still Are A-Changing.

He initiated a campaign of ‘shaving heads bald’ in protest right before June 4th, and was put in jail after the massacre.

Do you want to join other poets, musicians, and artists around the USA
and across the planet in a demonstration/ celebration to promote
serious social and political change?
“What kind of CHANGE are we talking about?”
The first order of change is for poets, writers, musicians, artists, anybody, to actually get together to create and perform, educate and demonstrate, simultaneously, with other communities around the world. This will change how we see our local community and the global community. We have all become incredibly alienated in recent years. We hardly know our neighbors down the street let alone our creative allies who live and share our concerns in other countries. We need to feel this kind of global solidarity. I think it will be empowering.
And of course there is the political/social change that many of us are talking about these days. There is trouble in the world. Wars, ecocide, the lack of affordable medical care, racism, the list goes on. We are only asking that local organize events about change within the guidelines
of peace and sustainability.
It appears that transformation towards a more sustainable world is a major concern and could be a global guiding principle for this event. Peace also seems to be a common cause. War is not sustainable. There is an increasing sense that we need to move forward and stop moving backwards. But I am trying not to be dogmatic. I am hoping that together we can develop our ideas of the “change/transformation” we are looking for as a group, and that each community group will decide their own specific area of focus for change for their particular event.

Clear 77°F / 55°F
September 28, 2013 marks the third annual global event for 100 Thousand Poets for Change, a grassroots organization that brings communities together to call for environmental, social, and political change within the framework of peace and sustainability. An event that began primarily with poet organizers, 100 Thousand Poets for Change has grown into an interdisciplinary coalition with year round events which includes musicians, dancers, mimes, painters and photographers from around the world.
This is the second year Iris De Anda has organized the El Sereno edition at Eastside Café, representing Los Angeles. This year’s featured poets are:
Jessica Ceballos is a writer who dabbles in music and photography. She’s a volunteer, community advocate, avid traveler, and cultural wanderer. Third generation Southern Californian, jessica has been recognized by the City of Los Angeles for her work bringing literary arts to the community. Aside from being publishes in several journals and reading throughout Southern California, she curates the monthly Great Beyond open reading out of Beyond Baroque and Poesia Para La Gente, a program that brings poetry to the people of the community using non-traditional spaces as venues and the monthly Bluebird Reading series, both out of Avenue 50 Studio in Highland Park.
She’s working on a couple of big projects involving music-sound-science-language, a novel, and a collection of poetry to be out in 2014. www.jessicaceballos.com
Annette Cruz –
Taking her cue from renegades like Anne Sexton and Neal Cassidy, Annette’s work is known for crossing invisible boundaries and stirring controversy, with little regard for norms or conventions. Her poetry has been published in various indie poetry zines such as SIC and Artemis (University of Nottingham Women’s Network Magazine) and blog site Hinchas De Poesia over the years. She’s performed her poetry in various Los Angeles venues ranging from Beyond Baroque in Venice, CA to Timothy Leary’s final birthday party at his home in the Hollywood Hills. You can find a few of her early spoken word recordings on the 1994 T.O.N. Records poetry compilation: Media Slitz. She is also a regular contributor to Our Town El Sereno community magazine and is the Newsletter Editor for the American Mobile Retail Association. She is currently working with Punk Hostage Press on an upcoming collection of poems, prose and memoirs titled Dangerous Intersection: Tales from a N.E.L.A. Half Sister. She resides in the El Sereno neighborhood that borders NorthEast and East Los Angeles with her husband and son.

Cultivated by the sun and moon peeking past the shoes dangling from the phone lines, Rebecca Gonzales was raised “one block East of El Pino.” Rebecca collects the energy of the streets with the passion of poetry and sweetness of her son’s laughter to find positivity and optimism for the future. As a mother she is humbled as a poet she is obedient, and as a woman she is unapologetic.
Karineh Mahdessian learned english by reading nancy drew books and watching married with children. she has a great affinity for really large earrings. she enjoys tacos from highland park taco trucks. she will challenge anyone to a thumbwrestling match. anytime. anyplace. she always has her chess set riding around in the trunk of her car. and she is absolutely in love with haikus.
Luivette Resto was born in Aguas Buenas, Puerto Rico but proudly raised in the Bronx. Her first book of poetry Unfinished Portrait was published in 2008 by Tia Chucha Press and later named a finalist for the 2009 Paterson Poetry Prize.
