  1. Yeah! Congratulations! You are an amazing woman, poet, and activist. You inspire me, motivate me, and provide a shining example of love, struggle and activism. I am so grateful to call you mi compañera.
    Love ❤️️Lil

  2. Nina,
    Te felicito. What a wonderful idea and site. Your You Tube Channel is so rich and varied. You are truly a cultural guerrillera, a treasure. Your poetry comes from the heart. Your work expresses your love for humanity, for this fragile planet where we live and play. Your talents you place at the service of your commitment for a just and peaceful world.

    When I read your work I am moved by the empathy you share one human being to another. You remind me of the Cesar Vallejo of Poemas Humanos. I would also add the prose of an Eduardo Galeano or Jose Saramago. You are a very special person, Nina, and I love you as my sister. The sister I never had, but have in you.

    Your video of Nicaragua where Ernesto Cardenal gives Joan Baez a welcome hug brought memories to me of Roberto who introduced me to Cardenal’s poetry. I thought of you and Alejandro and Ediciones Pocho Che, Third World Communications, Janice, Tulani, Rupert, and the poets and artists that became part of our expanding circle of friends and collaborators.

    You are an inspiration to me, a breath of fresh air.
