I have recently really been struggling with the issue of Colonization around the world and will be writing more about this later.

  1. Good on you for writing about colonisation Anne. Until those in positions of influence take the time to try and understand the impacts of colonisation… a number of our world’s citizens will be at best misunderstood and at worst victimised.

  2. Dear Anne, an important issue. I was very touched by your poem, especially the part “no way for justice to be served…” I remember the book “the circle and the cross” very good from Caiseal Mor. It is a fantasy book what you recommended and for me there was so much learnings in it about ” reality”, christianisation, colonalization in Ireland. I am very interested in further thoughts about colonization. Greeetings Marianne

  3. I have had two close friends that had court experience recently, they didn’t find justice either. Someone winning and someone loosing doesn’t mean justice. I am also grateful that you are writing about colonization. As a country we have abused it mightly. Annie
