In Memoriam

Beng Hernandez was a young poet/activist killed in Arakan Valley, Philippines in 2002. The article can be read in the kilometer64 yahoogroups.

I read the her Philippine native language poem (sorry, I don’t know what language it is in) and immediately made a connection. The translation helped, but the raw power and message in the original was quite strong.
