I have the honor, to inform you of the organization in Paris from 19 to September 23, 2007 of the first festival of the poets of the world on the topic of peace.
Our capital so rich in culture is the place chosen for this bold company which one owes with the engagement of a poet: Yvan TETELBOM, organizer of association ?poets in Paris?.
This festival, dice its decision, was sponsored by ?Poets of the world? and its founder: Shine ARIAS MANZO.
Recently, Mr Maurus YOUNG, secretary-general of the world Academy of the culture and arts and the world congress of the poets, gave his support for this initiative.
For my part, like poet and writer, I will take part in this festival.Celles and those which know my engagement for peace since many years, will include/understand the reasons of my engagement to the service of the success of this demonstration.
Yvan TETELBOM, has put in practice what wrote Victor HUGO, when it indicated that ?those which fight, it is those which live?. It conceived a program of which you will find herewith, the presentation. You will discover the aspect creative and diversified of this canned which, we hope for it, will be supplemented by a reception of poets of the world by representatives of the State in a symbolic system place of the national representation.
Whereas the capacities of the money, of the individual success by all the means, became the dominant criteria of too many individuals, the poets remain an important vector of humanistic engagement, for the créatiion of values: to perpetuate the emotions, to fight the injustices, to promote solidarity, magnifier symbiosis with nature, to develop the woman: ?Future of the man?, to support the combat for peace and the dialog between civilizations.
If Yvan had a dream like celebrates it Pasteur Martin LUTHER - KING, it into practice put it within the meaning of an active production of reality expensive at Rene TANK.
Can one consider a more beautiful prospect, than that to bring together poets of the 5 continents on the topic of peace?
Whereas poetry (as if it did not have anything any more to say to us) is ignored or marginalized by many media and institutions, to join together, like wrote the poet Louis ARAGON ?those which believe in the sky and those which do not believe in it ?with such a prospect is a major act of our time.
