If you’re a Christian, have a happy Easter, and remember that most Christians from the holy land are excluded today and every other day from worshipping at the place of the resurrection because Jerusalem is illegally occupied by the sectarian state of Israel.

I am essentially a political woman, but above all I am a poet. I am a poetess. The word exists in Portugal, and I use it all the time. An interventionist poet, a poet who fights for freedom. Because you can only be a poet in freedom.
The night is long and the Lord is Generous.

First, human rights literature relies on a framework of a modernized first world that should go in and rescue, civilize and liberate those facing yet another crisis in the third world, always imagined as a ‘region of aberrant violence’. Second, human rights discourse presumes women only as individual, autonomous beings who can be rescued, rather than as members of families or other group identities. This demonizes socioeconomically disempowered men in particular ways as the oppressors of women, pits marginalized groups against and in competition with one another, and promotes international organizations as the saviors when marginalized men, as a group, also lack systematic access to resources and decision-making power. Third, this paradigm presumes that women can be identiﬁed as a group. In other words, to argue the collective rights of women ‘assumes women live their lives solely as women, a universalizing move that ignores the fact that women are not all gendered in the same ways’
