Inja is one of the leading poets and spoken word artists supporting Words that Burn, a new national poetry and human rights education project, from Amnesty International that launched in partnership with Cheltenham Literature Festival.

Here he performs his poem She just wanna dance exclusively for HuffPost UK, which is about sexual harassment and how, when on a night out, women just want to dance.

Words that Burn will help secondary school students explore human rights and express themselves through poetry. Each term Amnesty will provide information about an individual who has had their human rights violated. Students will be able to have their solidarity or protest poems sent to the individual or the relevant authority by Amnesty, so their literary creations can have direct impact and contribute to effecting change.
