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.

* Join in the 5th Annual International Week against the Apartheid Wall, Nov. 9-16

November 9th marks the beginning of the 5th Annual International Week against the Apartheid Wall, organized by the Grassroots Palestinian Anti-Apartheid Wall Campaign. For more details, click here.

The US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation urges its member organizations and individual supporters to take action to protest U.S. support for Israel's illegal Apartheid Wall.

In July 2004, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) issued an advisory opinion ruling that Israel's Apartheid Wall is illegal, must be dismantled, and compensation paid to those adversely affected by it. The ICJ also ruled that all signatories to the 4th Geneva Convention must not "recognize the illegal situation resulting from the construction of the wall" nor "render aid or assistance in maintaining the situation created by such construction."

Despite this ICJ ruling, in May 2005, President Bush signed into law a supplemental spending bill for the war in Iraq, which included $50 million "for assistance for Israel to help ease the movement of Palestinian people and goods in and out of Israel." Israel then used this money to build high-tech "terminals" into the Apartheid Wall, thereby placing the United States in direct violation of the ICJ ruling.

In addition, in August 2007, the United States and Israel signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to increase U.S. military aid to Israel to $30 billion over the next decade. This military aid helps Israel to maintain its illegal Apartheid Wall and military occupation, again in violation of the ICJ ruling.


1. Contact your Members of Congress. To send a letter to your Members of Congress protesting the $30 billion MOU in military aid to Israel, click here.

2. Write a letter to the editor. To look up contact information for your local media, click here.

3. Download and distribute information. To download a US Campaign fact-sheet on the Apartheid Wall, click here.

4. Start a campaign of boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS). To get resources and ideas on how to start a BDS campaign, click here.

* Meet with Your Members of Congress during November Recess

Members of Congress will be adjourning for a two-week recess on Friday, November, 16.
The US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation urges its member organizations and individual supporters to schedule meetings with their Members of Congress during the November recess to discuss policy matters pertaining to Israel/Palestine.
Here are some tips on how to set up a meeting with your Members of Congress:

Setting Up a Meeting with Your Members of Congress

1. Assemble a delegation of constituents. Assemble a delegation of up to 6-8 people to meet with your Members of Congress. Ideally, delegations will be diverse and include people from different organizations and communities.

2. Decide upon the issues you want to discuss. Pick no more than 3-4 legislative and/or policy issues that you'd like to discuss with your Members of Congress. Make sure that the issues are focused and that you are asking your Members of Congress to do something specific that they have the power to do. For a listing of major legislative issues related to Palestine/Israel in the current Congress and the position of your Members of Congress on them, please see the US Campaign's 110 th Congressional Report Card by clicking here.

Also, consider discussing with them your opposition to increasing U.S. military aid to Israel to $30 billion over the next decade. In August 2007, the United States and Israel signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to that effect; however, Congress still needs to agree on annual funding to make this MOU operative. For additional details and talking points, click here.

3. Fax a constituent meeting request to the offices of your Members of Congress. To get contact information for the schedulers in the offices of your Members of Congress and a template constituent meeting request fax, click here.

4. Schedule your meeting. This might require several communications between you and the scheduler before a meeting is arranged. Be patient and be flexible with your meeting request. If your group is able to meet with your Members of Congress at any time during the November recess, you're more likely to get a meeting than if you can only meet on a Monday morning at 9:00AM, for example.

5. Tell us how your meeting went. After you meet with your Members of Congress, please send us a report. It's important for us to know what Members of Congress are telling their constituents and it makes it easier for us to work together to change U.S. policy.

For additional tips on meeting with your Members of Congress, click here.

If you're willing to volunteer to set up a meeting with your Members of Congress or would like advice on how to do so, please contact Josh Ruebner, Grassroots Advocacy Coordinator at 202-332-0994 or

If you'd like to join the US Campaign's Congressional District Coordinator network and volunteer to organize people in your Congressional district to educate your Members of Congress about the need to change U.S. policy toward Israel/Palestine to support human rights, international law, and equality for all, please click here.


* Adalah-NY Kicks Off BDS Campaign against NYC Developers Building Israeli Settlements; Glitterati at Leviev's New York Gala Stunned by Encounter with Palestinian Rights Protest

November 13, 2007

Adalah-NY: The Coalition for Justice in the Middle East

Over 100 well-dressed, well-heeled New Yorkers attending the invitation-only opening of diamond mogul Lev Leviev's Madison Avenue jewelry store this evening appeared stunned and aghast to find their evening derailed by a noisy protest against Leviev's construction of illegal West Bank settlements. Gala attendees set down their champagne glasses and gathered by windows to view the signs and Palestinian flags, and hear protesters' chants.

30 New York City human rights activists chanted, "You're glitz, you're glam, you're stealing Palestinian land", and "All your diamonds cannot hide, your support for Apartheid." Protesters called on New York City's upscale residents to boycott Leviev's diamonds. Disconcerted attendees hastily exited to their limousines to loud chants of, "Occupation is a drag, just say no to your gift bag."

Click here to read more about the protest.

Adalah-NY will hold a second protest at Leviev's 700 Madison Avenue jewelry store on Tuesday, November 20 from 4:30 - 6:00 PM.

* Interfaith Peace-Builders: Tent of Nations: One Palestinian Family Struggles to Save their Land and Heritage

When: Monday, November 26, 6:00 - 8:00 PM
Where: The Peace Café at Busboys and Poets
2021 14th Street, Washington, DC 20009

A Presentation by
Daoud Nassar

Suggested Donation of $15 or above benefits Tent of Nations
Light fare provided
Space is limited so please arrive early!

Speaker Bios:

Daoud Nassar, a Palestinian farmer from Bethlehem, speaks about the struggle to defend his family's land and heritage. The Nassar farm stands alone, ringed by Israeli settlements and the encroaching Separation Wall, the last holdout in a region marked for annexation by Israel. "The land is our mother," says Daoud Nassar. "Our mother is not for sale." Under his leadership, the family has taken the case to establish the family's land rights to the Israeli Supreme Court. Mr. Nassar and his family have also formed the Tent of Nations, a grassroots organization which runs educational programs for youth, women and international visitors. The Nassars seek peaceful coexistence with Israel in a shared Palestine and are committed to nonviolence. Through the Tent of Nations, they teach young Palestinians the importance of land and identity in their struggle for self-determination. For more on Tent of Nations see:

Ray McGovern was a CIA analyst from the administration of John F. Kennedy to that of George H. W. Bush. McGovern chaired National Intelligence Estimates in the 70s, and in the 80s conducted daily briefings of the most senior Reagan administration officials. In 2003 he co-founded Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) to expose the corruption of intelligence to "justify" war on Iraq. From 1998 to 2003 he was co-director of the Servant Leadership School and now works with Tell the Word, the publishing arm of the ecumenical Church of the Saviour in Washington, DC. Mr. McGovern recently returned from an Interfaith Peace-Builders delegation to Israel/Palestine. He believes that bringing Justice into the Israeli-Palestinian equation is the key to lasting peace in the region. He points out that "they say the opposite of love is fear; or is it indifference - 'standing aside.' Fear can prompt people to do evil to others. This trip confirmed that the challenge is to nurture the personal contacts that can allay fear, and thwart the evil stemming from it."


* Dutch "Research" Group Covers for Israeli Crimes, Violations
Stan van Houcke, The Electronic Intifada, 5 November 2007

Doron Livnat is co-owner of Riwal, a Dutch company involved in the illegal construction of the separation Wall in occupied Palestinian territory. In 2004 the Wall was confirmed by the International Court of Justice as being in violation of international law. Livnat is also a member of the board of the Centre for Information and Documentation on Israel (CIDI), a pro-Zionist political lobby group based in Amsterdam.

CIDI does not seem to have a problem with the judgment of the International Court of Justice, nor Livnat's company's involvement in this illegal activity. And yet CIDI still has the audacity to condemn United Civilians for Peace (UCP), a broad-based Dutch human rights platform. In a recent "research" report containing wild allegations, CIDI shamelessly attempted to smear the organization for daring to call for dialogue and to present a perspective critical of Israel, calling for an end to its subsidy.

* Institute for Palestine Studies' Policy Note No. 22: Gaza's Humanitarian Crisis: Who's to Blame for What?

By Nadia Hijab

While all eyes are fixed on the potential and pitfalls of the Annapolis meeting the United States is convening, the Gaza Strip is suffering a humanitarian crisis and ongoing violence from Israeli attacks and intra-Palestinian clashes. Who's to blame? Fingers are pointed at Hamas for having taken over Gaza by force in June 2007; at Israel for its boycott and siege; and at militant groups in Gaza for rockets fired at Israel. None of this saves the civilian population from disaster, or explains how the situation in Gaza deteriorated so quickly.

The Unfolding Drama of the Found

WPA during the 1930's Great Depression in USA was the Works Progress Administration created by President Franklin D. Roosevelt
The WPA provided jobs for and AS painters, writers, musicians, artists and crafts persons in a great many media, as well as jobs for workers in all manner of trades--

Poetry in Nature: Photogaphy of Pradip Datta & rubBEings

I am deeply thankful to Irena and Alexander Jorgensen for sending me this book of an exhibition by the Bengali photographer Pradip Datta. Alex has been making many connections in person with artists and especially poets of the Bengali language. A great inspiration to us both and a person who has been making personal introductions and literary ones for Alex and Irena and literary & art ones for myself via the mails is Aryanil Mukherjee, poet, translator and editor of the print and online Bengali/English languages poetry and literary journal Kaurab.
(i have the great honor of having been invited
to do the current issue's cover and that for the next)

I want to thank very much these three friends for their introducing me to the vibrant and incredibly beautiful worlds of Bengali poetry and art, and returning me to listening to the music of the Bauls.

My only previous encounter with Bengali literature had been via publications presented by Allen Ginsberg in City Lights Journal and other publications, as well as his Indian Journals. These remain an early window into a world and era of exchanges which has evolved and grown very much since the 1960's, with the windows of the times since, present and to come being opened by new generations via traditional and new media, contacts, journals, translations, exchanges and friends. My thanks to all, known and unknown as yet--

The fotos of Pradip Datta for myself have a very interesting interrelationship with the making of my rubBEings. Pradip Datta is very aware of the slight differences between raised and lowered areas of a surface, from the very small to the much larger, though the small may function as metonym for the large, or bear a fractal relationship also. With rubBEings, one is always teaching the eyes to learn how to touch and the hands how to see. In Pradip Datta's fotos I find this same activity and quality very much alive, and it is a revelation and education to study the ways in which he uses light, shadow, line in the way one uses a crayon in rubBEings.
In the fotos and with rubBEings, one is not working with an imposition of vision onto forms found in an environment--but with working what is found as it emerges out of/with the environment. The artist essays to find a balance of call and resposne--with the call issuing from the found environment, natural or human-made. These already existing visual voices call out, and hearing and seeing them, the artist responds--by having the call "register" itself on the fotographic film and the eye of the fotographer and on the paper, crayon and eye/hand of the rubBeings-maker. The artist's response is an attention become action, a visual voicing and dance. This dance is a series of gestures inviting the viewer/reader/listener to enter into the awareness of all that is around one hidden in plain site/sight/cite. In that awareness the hidden emerges to present in the present a present of its presence, the signs of its notation by the one in response with this call.

Does one find these things--or is it them that finds one?
It is in these uncanny encounters and recognitions that a visual poetry is creating and created both--

Pradip Datta's work reminds one that lines of poetry originated among roots, wood grains, bark, branches, strands of hair, wind-formed ripplings in sand , dirt and dust, formations emerging from the combined effects of water, earth and air, chemical interactions of minerals, the activities of time in an instant--a "flash"--and over eons--a creation via disintegrations as much as formations--of particles and fragments in continual flux and flow as much as "completed pictures" and "documented objects"--"the work of/with light" that is both particle and wave and "light source" of the fotographer's art--

Thank you also to Christ Davis for sending the link to a review of this book/exhibition:

Nuc/Nudo 2000 i Nuc/Nudo 2005 pretendían vincular personas y territorios, en el caso de Nuc/Nudo 2005 en contra del PHN i a favor de una nueva cultura del agua. Con esta nueva convocatoria, Nuc/Nudo 2008, pretendemos que artistas del territorio del Sénia y de todo el mundo vuelvan a formar un “nuc/nudo”, esta vez para hacer frente común contra la creciente contaminación, y especialmente, por la que podría afectar espacios naturales hasta ahora protegidos.
La instalación de una central regasificadora en territorio valenciano, pero con perjuicios para las zonas cercanas, ha impulsado a la gente del Sénia a formar una plataforma como la que en su día fue la del No al Trasvase y también a formular esta convocatoria siguiendo la tradición de “Nuc/Nudo 2005. Por una nueva cultura del agua”. Es decir, en defensa del medio ambiente y en contra de la contaminación.

Las obras se enviarán a:

El tamaño y las técnicas a utilizar son libres. Aunque preferimos el formato electrónico en jpeg, con un máximo de 1 Mb.

No olvidéis enviar vuestros datos, especialmente el correo electrónico, ya que nos será útil para posteriores comunicaciones.

La fecha límite de entrega es el próximo 31 de diciembre de 2007.

Las obras se expondrán por medio de un álbum web, la dirección del cual es: Se hará una proyección pública de las obras en la exposición de un trabajo de investigación de Bachillerato.

Los trabajos no serán devueltos y pasarán a formar parte del fondo documental de la biblioteca del IES Sòl-de-Riu.

Cut Up Close Up - a (real) apocryphal one-off at Lorem Ipsum gallery





Lorem Ipsum Gallery, 12b Vyner Street, London E2 9HE

Nearest Tube: Bethnal Green

The Lorem Ipsum Gallery is pleased to present the performance event Cut Up – Close Up, featuring Apocryphal Theatre members Bill Aitchison, Lukas Angelini, Lucy Avery, Rachel Ellis, Boris Kahnert and Jane Munro, radio broadcaster Martin Williams and exhibiting artists Matthew Coombes, John Higgins, Birthe Jørgensen, Agnieszka Stone and Malin Ståhl.

Midway through the exhibition A Certain Kind of Conditioning the mode of the visual art show meets Apocryphal Theatre's improvisational theatre practice in the live event Cut Up - Close Up.

Through a communication across these disciplines the audience is invited to witness the exhibition transform in front of their eyes. The artists and the performers will enter a dialogue with the work, the space and the location. The elements usually hidden, such as discussions and decisions about location of the artwork, the hanging of the work and lighting are reintroduced. The result, a reinvented show, will be retained for the remainder of the exhibition.

Writer and director Julia Lee Barclay's experimental ensemble Apocryphal Theatre ( consists of performers, musicians, dancers and visual artists. Following the structure of Barclay's texts, which continuously shifts in level of address, presence and numbers of voices, the performers set out to undermine 'the reality-grid of the right now'. The theatre creates improvised pieces that seek to uproot the static nature of language, gesture, and character. A great influence on Barclay's work is improvised jazz music.

Radio Broadcaster Martin Williams will be creating an audio account of the event.

Palestine Chronicle - to Launch Soon

Sent on behalf of
Editor's Note: we urge you to kindly forward, pass on and post this invitation as far and wide as you can; for this ambitious project to succeed, it needs to live up to its responsibility as a truly global project, bringing to the fore hundreds of people from diverse ethnicities, backgrounds, languages and viewpoints.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE A People Media Project to Launch Soon
LONDON/SEATTLE/BARCELONA - We are writing to invite you to participate in a groundbreaking new media project: The People Media Project, aimed at promoting a broader and more balanced understanding of global issues, conflicts and concerns.
With board members including a diverse range of internationally-renowned intellectuals and activists - such as Noam Chomsky, John Pilger, Vandana Shiva and Arun Gandhi - this project aspires to become the largest and most influential of its kind anywhere. (visit to view full list of advisory board members)
Dedicated to dialogue, democratic discourse and the availability and viability of such values in today's media, the project characterizes itself as the facilitator of productive communication between a large array of experts who represent diverse views - especially those often overlooked or discounted entirely by the media - and existing media channels.
It will utilize the proficiency of hundreds of people in many fields - democracy, human rights, politics, health, the environment, and much more – to make possible a wider and more informative discourse about such issues.
The database on our website will provide a conduit that enables scholars, experts and activists to present their profiles to media producers worldwide.
This would give them access to the media in times where their particular expertise and knowledge in specific areas are needed. Media producers would be able to find these individual profiles through, and we would also circulate daily press releases to worldwide media networks and channels, passing on to them the profiles of individuals who may be able to comment on current events.
By subscribing to , media producers will gain access to scores of scholars, activists and experts, while the latter would find opportunity to regularly share their views on crucial issues to broad audiences around the world.
Please visit our website - for further details on how to become involved.
