Mohammed al-Ajami – Least He Be Forgotten

Mohammed al-Ajami

As poets gather in April in celebration of National Poetry Month we should remember Mohammed al-Ajami remains in prison in Qatar for writing a poem about the Arab Spring. His sentence was reduced from life to 15 years. He sits in his prison cell while we write and share our poetry. Please visit this link and make use of the contacts to request the poet be freed.
