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.

El gran promotor de la poesía visual en Tarragona: Rafael Bartolozzi,
después de una larga y compleja enfermedad, se despidió de todos nosotros


Poema Visual Escultorico de Rafael Bartolozzi en la playa de Torredembarra (Tarragona)


Pintor español. Tras instalarse en 1964 en Barcelona, estudia en la Escuela Superior de Bellas Artes de San Jorge
y en la Escuela de Pintura Mural de Sant Cugat del Vallés conociendo en estos centros a Eduardo Arranz Bravo, con el que se asocia de 1965 a 1983.
Sus obras, marcadas por las corrientes figurativas de la década de los sesenta,
arrancan de la herencia surrealista del grupo informalista Dau al Set.
Artista de enorme creatividad cultiva, además de la pintura, el grabado, la escultura, la ilustración, el muralismo y las intervenciones en espacios públicos.
Diferenciándose de Arranz Bravo por una grafía más depurada y una mayor carga erótica y onírica, Bartolozzi,
además, mantiene una pulsión clasicista que se revela en el gusto por la anatomía y el perfeccionismo en las resoluciones plásticas. Obtiene, en 1992,
el Gran Premio de la X Bienal Internacional del Deporte en las Bellas Artes, iniciando, en 1993, el proyecto del Museo del Fuego en Vespella de Gaía,
donde fué alcalde durante varios años y
promotor, desde ese mismo año, en esta pequeña población de apenas 200 habitantes,

del Premio Nacional de Poesía Visual y Performance,

bajo la presidencia anual de Joan Brossa. El premio tuvo 9 ediciones y estuvieron en el jurado figuras tan relevantes como
Bigas Luna, Carles Hac Mor, Xavier Canals, Joan Abelló, Ester Xargay, Gustavo Vega, Bartolomé Ferrando,  etc.


Catálogo de una de sus últimas exposiciones

El Taller del Sol y el Boek 861 quiere acompañar en el sentimiento a su familia
y como recuerdo nos queremos despedir con esta obra de su hijo Nil Bartolozzi
