Word Strike

WordStrike began in the summer of 2010 as a petition to honor the boycott of Arizona after that state passed its anti-immigrant law SB 1070. The petition has been signed by hundreds of novelists, poets, playwrights, journalists, and other writers, including Chris Abani, Tariq Ali, Russell Banks, Amiri Baraka, Noam Chomsky, Sandra Cisneros, Mike Davis, Thulani Davis, Junot Díaz, Martin Espada, Eduardo Galeano, Jessica Hagedorn, David Henry Hwang, Ha Jin, Maxine Hong Kingston, Naomi Klein, Yusef Komunyakaa, Jhumpa Lahiri, Chang-rae Lee, Ruben Martinez, Michael Ondaatje, Ed Park, Francine Prose, Ishmael Reed, Adrienne Rich, Luis Rodriguez, Salman Rushdie, Andre Schiffrin, Helena Maria Viramontes, Anne Waldman, and John Waters, among many others.
