E V E R YW H E R E on the Leap-year Day and Night, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 29, 2012.
The World Poetry Movement (WPM)/Movimiento Mundiale de
Poesia (MMP) is pleased to announce to the world its next major
event, which is called:
A LEAP FORWARD
and will take place E V E R YW H E R E on the Leap-year Day
and Night, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 29, 2012. The Co-
ordinating Committee of the WPM/MMP urges all poets, groups
involved with poetry throughout the world, to begin organizing
events in their particular areas—-whether it involves cities, small
towns or villages—under the umbrella of A LEAP FORWARD.
It may seem only a coincidence but the Occupy Wall Street move-
ment that began of September 17. 2011 occurred within the process
of the call for 100 Thousand Poets for Change, the WPM event that
manifested on September 24 of last year. And we have seen that,
with th Occupy movement bursting out and proliferating all over,
“there’s a poem being written by the people of the world” and it is
filled with cries for justice and real democracy, with all the aspects of
life—-from the economic to the ecological—that were part of the very
formation of the WPM itself, simply because they are part of the fabric
of people’s yearnings everywhere.
Events that will be multiple leaps forward under A LEAP FORWARD
moniker—events with poets who, in the past year, (what with Tunisia,
Egypt, Wisconsin, to name but a few), have been catalyzed by dynamic
inspiration and realize their consciousness of the world has grown by
leaps and bounds, can reveal those passionate leaps as part of the great
flow of events on Leap-year Day and Night, 2012, and collectively move
the whole world forward toward the democracy that all of us are dying
for and want to attain before we die.
