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.

Honduras: Repression Intensifies--Contact Your Representatives Here





Dear david-baptiste,

The situation in Honduras is getting worse each day since the SOA graduate-led military coup against the government of President Manuel Zelaya.

The Committee of Family Members of Detained and Disappeared in Honduras (COFADEH) published a report yesterday, detailing hundreds of cases of human rights abuses committed by the coup regime, including four political assassinations. You can take a stand against this injustice right now:

No to the Military Coup! Urge your Representative to Take a Stand for Democracy!

Despite US government claims that they've cut all military ties with the Honduran golpistas, the SOA continues to train Honduran soldiers. This is not real support for democracy.

Representatives Bill Delahunt, José Serrano and Jim McGovern have introduced a resolution that calls for the return to democracy and the reinstatement of Manuel Zelaya as President of Honduras. Click here to ask your Representative to take a stand for democracy by suspending operations of the SOA and restoring the rightful government of Honduras!

Our Emergency Response Delegation has returned from Honduras. We continue to be in close contact with the Frente de Resistencia Contra el Golpe en Honduras, a newly-formed network of Honduran grassroots groups that are working against the military coup.

Because of your support, we were able to help coordinate a delegation of leaders in the anti-coup resistance in Washington, including a Honduran Congressman; a former presidential candidate and human rights leader, and a lawyer with the attorney general's office. SOA Watch set up meetings with the State Department, Congressional leaders, and the Honduran delegation was also able to connect with grassroots activists and members of the Honduran community here in DC. Together, we are raising our voices for justice!

Thank you for your generous support of our shared work. A member of the SOA Watch delegation decided to match five thousand dollars, making your contributions count twice as much.

In response to our super successful first matching donation appeal, another supporter stepped up and pledged to match up to another five thousand, as long as we receive the donations before the end of July. If you haven't yet contributed, or if you're able to spare another $20 or more, please give today.

As ever, thank you for your amazing efforts in the last few weeks. Together, we will continue standing strong in the face of injustice with our brothers and sisters in Honduras who will restore their rights to democracy, sovereignty and struggle.

Peace,
Lisa Sullivan
SOA Watch Latin America Coordinator

Actually, it's not odd at all that world leaders are condemning Honduras as a coup but not Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador or Nicaragua; generally, coups are state takeovers by a small group with military/police backing, which hasn't happened anywhere in Latin America besides Honduras since...oh right, the anti-Chavez coup in Venezuela by folks on Arria's side.
