Free Leonard Peltier

Free Leonard Peltier
The government under pretext of security and progress, liberated us from our land, resources, culture, dignity and future. They violated every treaty they ever made with us. I use the word “liberated” loosely and sarcastically, in the same vein that I view the use of the words “collateral damage” when they kill innocent men, women and children. They describe people defending their homelands as terrorists, savages and hostiles . . . My words reach out to the non-Indian: Look now before it is too late—see what is being done to others in your name and see what destruction you sanction when you say nothing. --Leonard Peltier, Annual Message January 2004 (Leonard Peltier is now serving 31st year as an internationally recognized Political Prisoner of the United States Government)

Miss Universe Visits Guantanamo: 'A Loooot Of Fun!'

Miss Universe Visits Guantanamo: 'A Loooot Of Fun!'

The current 'Miss Universe' Dayana Mendoza (formerly Miss Venezuela) and 'Miss America' Crystal Stewart visited US troops stationed in Guantanamo Bay on March 20th, the New York Times reports. Here's Mendoza's account of the visit from her pageant blog last Friday. She says the trip "was a loooot of fun!"

This week, Guantánamo!!! It was an incredible experience...All the guys from the Army were amazing with us. We visited the Detainees camps and we saw the jails, where they shower, how the recreate themselves with movies, classes of art, books. It was very interesting. We took a ride with the Marines around the land to see the division of Gitmo and Cuba while they were informed us with a little bit of history.

The water in Guantánamo Bay is soooo beautiful! It was unbelievable, we were able to enjoy it for at least an hour. We went to the glass beach, and realized the name of it comes from the little pieces of broken glass from hundred of years ago. It is pretty to see all the colors shining with the sun. That day we met a beautiful lady named Rebeca who does wonders with the glasses from the beach. She creates jewelry with it and of course I bought a necklace from her that will remind me of Guantánamo Bay :)

I didn't want to leave, it was such a relaxing place, so calm and beautiful.

Three Turkish Visual Poets "For Lebanon, For Palestine"/Three Hypergraphiques & a Work by Isidore Isou/Writer-Soldiers collages/a rubBEing collage

Remember the joy in the world when the Berlin Wall came down????

Israeli demolition crane destroying Bedouin village.
Five villages with a total of 14, 000 people were demolished. The Israelis said that since Bedouins are a nomadic people they in effect do not live in villages, therefore there is no need for the villages to exist.
Logic of ethnic cleansing.

Some of the over one million cluster bombs to be found and detonated in Lebanon. Everyday civilian casualties continue from contact with bombs hidden everywhere and waiting to be detonated by unknowing touch.

Three Visual Poets from Turkey have begun sending works for this Call. You may also find their work and many others at the excellent Visual Poetry blog
which is run by Serkan Issin
Zinharpost welcomes you send them your work also!

"Fair Bounbdairies" 1 & 2 --Suzan SARI

"LAL"--Aysegul TOZEREN

"There Is No Hero Anymore" and

"Biochemically Abused"--Deniz TUNCEL

Three Hypergraphiques and a Work by Isidore ISOU

Part of a series for a project of altering sources--these switch materials from Writer magazine
with images and words from Solider of Fortune. Various other materials amd methods are collaged in also.

This uses an old 8 cent American postage stamp. You can see how long and futiley the "War on Drugs" has been going on--today the same postage stamp cost 39 cents. And there is more and better heroin from Afghanistan than ever before in history. The "War on Drugs" and "War on Terrorism" are linked in a catastrophe that joins the fields and mountains of Afghanistan with the cities and suburbs of the USA in destruction and death.

Emily Dickinson--instead of "circumference" here she is concerned with "edge"

This is a piece in another new series which keeps having different names.
It may be "aesthetics of disappearance" from a book by Paul Virilio.
