The Power of words can be used for propaganda and manipulation, or it could be used for education and liberation. The Poet Liberation Station appropriates its name from “The Chinese People’s Liberation Army” (解放軍), who were directed by Mao during the Cultural Revolution to purge the poets, the activists and the educated. This project seeks to create a platform and provide the supplies to liberate the poet within each of us. Instead of relying on the liberation army, we can all be liberation poets (解放詩人).
