Séamas Carraher is a working class poet and writer born on the southside of Dublin, Ireland.
He has worked many jobs to pay the rent as well as being a human rights activist for over 30 years in the struggle against poverty and injustice.
Currently he splits his time between supporting long term homeless street drinkers and writing (in various formats) on the many silences our world hides itself within, including the “personal” and the “political” that shape all our search for “freedom”.
He writes regularly for Global Rights (www.globalrights.info), where many of his articles and poems can be found, as well as on twitter, @wretchedearth2 and on his own blog http://seamascarraher.blogspot.com/.
Carraher has been writing extensively about Rojava and Kurdistan in the past three years and he has dedicated more than one poetic work to the Kurds.
ANF spoke to Seamas Carraher shortly after the publication of a new poem dedicated to the people of Afrin, which was published by Global Rights
