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.

Trilogy/Tryptich: Poetry by Police System ---Walls of Conflict, Confinement, Critique---Voice Goes After What Eyes Can't Reach: Poems Without Poets

Poetry by Police System:

"No one in building . . . as she sought refuse"

"Homeland security" "protects American women . . . from stonings, mutilations . . . "

WALLS of Conflict, Confinement, Critique--and Celebration--


Khan Younis

Stencils by Arofish

The ballons symbolize freedom above & beyond walls--

in Gaza, most densely inhabited place on earth--open space for children is rooftops--from where the kites are flown

these lites & kite flyers made in Beirut during Israeli Invasion Summer 2006

Pages from Manifesto of "The Splasher"
so-named for a tag found next to anonymous splashings and splaterings of paint on New York City street art begining in late 2006--as protest agaisnt the "name recognition/ Careerism/invitation to gentrification" of works by "Label names" street artists--street art as a site for gaining entre into art world, which in turn draws the moving in of gentrifying higher and higher income tenants--in effect the "street art" replacing the "street" and turning neighborhoods into art galleries, cafes, condos, etc--

(see entry with links below)

a different kind of "splash art"--Summer 2006 Invasion of Occupied Territories by IDF--Arofish stencils of Condi Rice, Tony Blair, Bush, Ohmert--for children to throw paint bags at--find amusement and entertainment during ever increasingly confined lives due to attacks--

The Wall "clears the horizon" of any sign of Palestinian existence--

A possible future of all Walls: crumbling wall of arsenal, Venice--

Another handy use for Walls--

The "Saint of Death" watching over Mexicans leaving for border with USA--

Mexican side of Border Wall with USA

Splasher anti- Street Art (are the Splashers artists?--anti-artists--lifestyle viglantes?--)

Photograph Exhibition, Nablus--

at many checkpoints, exhibitions are held by using the Border Fence as a "gallery wall"--
so--one may see the living people of the photographs--through a Fence rather than Wall--a "last glimpse"?--before vanishing forever behind Walls and from there into an existence only framed in photographs?

a newly created "open Wall"--bringing fresh air, sunshine, "picture window" views of the machines on break from this "home renovation"--

Walls, Grafitti, Havana Cuba

Walled off by American boycott for over 50 years--

Guantanamo, Cuba--Walled off from the World--

Privatizing the War on Immigration--

the bulldozer as International maker & keeper of borders, seperations--a multi-faceted Construction-Destruction killing machine

Walls of seperation being built by Americans at night in Baghdad--

Protesting "aesthetic cleansing"---the gentrification-via-art settlements of old neighborhoods--

Cleaning the way for gentrication out side the Walls--
"ethnic cleansing of old neighborhoods"--

Arofish--"Cleaning the Streets"--Beirut, 2006--

Many areas already enclosed by Wall--and more vanishing into enclosures--completely surrounded--entombed alive--

Mexican-American Wall--

Walls and window-- looking into and reaching out--the "Poor Room"--space-time "continuum"--of Forever outside time--

Ivan Albright

A1ONE Stencils--Tehran, Iran


("My voice goes after . . . " from Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass)

Recovering drug addict, rehab, Kabul, Afghanistan

Walls--building of them, smashing of them by war, occuptaion, ethnic cleansing, hurricanes, typhoons, volcanos, avalanches, floods, droughts, diseases--forcible exiles, evictions, evacuations--
