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.

Interview with Victor Sulser; performatic Mexico president

Víctor Sulser by lengua_lengua Víctor Sulser by lengua_lengua 


Dear Sean

Hihihi! Yes, that about beer and jokes was funny ;-p

I mean, if we are going to make an interview better make it cool.

Thank you for tell me I would be your minister of culture, oh, yes, I also would legalize drugs and prostitution, on such way I think there would be less corruption, more legal market, and the door gets open to give free medical, psychological, energetic, spiritual help to persons vulnerable in any way for such activities…

Mmm, do you know a thing that my mother and I would do? We would put fruit trees and vegetables in the public places, cultivated with the state budget, in order that avenues and parks have oranges, mandarins, strawberries, pineapples, carrots, papayas, figs… :-D

Kisses and blessings



Iris, you should interview me… beers, strawberries, jokes, sorry, this gets me into a soporific dream… the article… If I were president, the first thing I would do is to legalize all drugs, to control the sale of them, to file the names of the buyers and to collect taxes… also, abortion and prostitution would be legal… legal vice would foment much more control and will give lots of money…

You would be my culture minister, although I warn you, I would take out much of the money now used for art "grants"…

Sean Hennessey


Hello Sol

Thank you for your message. Yes, I realized about the format problem, I will see how we can solve it, thanks. By now, I send the text in an attach, so you can read it clear.

Now I'm in Chiapas, I will give a performance course on Studio Cerrillo, San Cristóbal, on 28 and 1.




Thank you Iris, It was nice to read the interview with Víctor Sulser, if you see him again, please give him my greetings. I just wanted to tell you, the bulletins lost format when arriving, I believe that is the typical problem between PC/MAC or MAC/PC, anyway. The case is that many letters appear as symbols and become difficult to read. I tell you to see if you can solve it for the next email.  

And how are you? I guess you are fine cos I see you active.

I send you a big hug, I hope we find us and we drink some beers.

Sol Henaro


Hello beautiful.

Yes, there is something sad in the background of disappointment or of cynicism, I prefer to see Sulser' actions as favorable to a conscience awake, and therefore impelling the transformation… As in the classic theater scene of Hamlet, portrait and farce of a murder king, that allow to the courteous spectators to have clarity to see and do what is right… was it, is it like this?


Hello, Iris!

Thousand thanks for this email. I have enjoyed it much. As country tragicomedy is our daily gender by nature. Sad, sad.

I send you a hug.

Peace, Propaganda & the Promised Land U.S. Media & the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict How Israel manipulates and distorts American public perceptions Through the voices of scholars, media critics, peace activists, religious figures, and Middle East experts, Peace, Propaganda & the Promised Land carefully analyzes and explains how--through the use of language, framing and context--the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza remains hidden in the news media, and Israeli colonization of the occupied terrorities appears to be a defensive move rather than an offensive one.

Israeli air strikes hit Gaza

http://english. aljazeera. net/focus/ crisisingaza/ 2009/02/20092191 518941246. html

Middle East

Israeli air strikes hit Gaza

Israel has launched several air raids against targets in southern Gaza near the border with Egypt, causing damages but no injuries, Palestinian security sources have said.

The strikes targeted "open areas" near the town of Rafah and tunnels along the border with Egypt, residents said.

An Israeli military spokesman confirmed that the "Israeli air force intervened in the Gaza Strip," late on Friday.

"Our planes attacked four tunnels that were dug under the border with Egypt and used for weapons smuggling," the spokesman told AFP news agency.

"An arms depot was also targeted and the explosives that were stocked there exploded," he said.

The raids came hours after Palestinian fighters fired two rockets at southern Israel without causing damage or victims, according to a military spokesman.

Shalit talks fail

The strikes also came after reports that indirect talks between Israel and Hamas over a prisoner swap to free Gilad Shalit, a captured Israeli soldier, failed.

Shalit was captured by Gaza groups in a 2006 cross-border raid.

Osama al-Muzaini, a Hamas official who is involved in the negotiations, said on Friday that the talks had shown little progress and that any claims by Israel that progress had been made were "election-motivated".

"There has been no progress in the [Shalit] file for several months and that is because [Israel] remained unwilling to pay the price," he told Reuters news agency.

Muzini was responding to a report published on the website of Israel's Haaretz newspaper quoting unnamed Israeli officials as saying significant progress had been made in truce talks and Shalif's freedom.

Muzaini did not mention where the talks had been held or who led the mediation.

Hamas has demanded the release of 1,400 prisoners in exchange for Shalit.

Muzaini said Israel had only agreed to 71 names from the list of 450 long-serving prisoners Hamas had proposed more than a year ago.




Luigi Galleani & Pietro Gori: I Martiri di Chicago nella Rievocazione Storica





The events ignited the lifelong radicalism of immigrants in the USA, most prominently known today the young worker Emma Goldman, and that of a future immigrant, Luigi Galleani, founder of La Cronaca Sovverisiva described by Federal Agents during the "Red Scares" of 1917 and 1919 as the most dangerous journal ever published in the United States--and which it probably remains as to this day:

Under threat of prosecution, he took refuge in France, from which he was expelled for taking part in a May Day demonstration. Moving to Switzerland, he visited the exiled French anarchist and geographer Elisée Reclus, whom he assisted in the preparation of his Nouvelle Géographie universelle, compiling statistics on Central America. He also assisted students at the University of Geneva in arranging a celebration in honor of the Haymarket Martyrs, who had been hanged in Chicago in 1887, for which he was expelled as a dangerous agitator. Returning to Italy, Gaileani continued his agitation, which got him into trouble with the police. Arrested on charges of conspiracy, he spent more than five years in prison and exile before escaping from the island of Pantelleria, off the coast of Sicily, in 1900.
(more below)
Note: Elisee Reclus is one of the greatest geographers of the 19th Century and one of the Founders of Social Geography still very much in use today. Reclus was forced into exile as a surviving member of the Paris Commune of 1871.

The Direct Role of the Haymarket Events in the Life of Luigi Galleani

Gaileani was born on August 12, 1861, in the Piedmont town of Vercelli, not far from the city of Turin. The son of middle-class parents, he was drawn to anarchism in his late teens and, studying law at the University of Turin, became an outspoken militant whose hatred of capitalism and government would burn with undiminished intensity for the rest of his life. Gaileani, however, refused to practice law, which he had come to regard with contempt, transferring his talents and energies to radical propaganda.

Under threat of prosecution, he took refuge in France, from which he was expelled for taking part in a May Day demonstration. Moving to Switzerland, he visited the exiled French anarchist and geographer Elisée Reclus, whom he assisted in the preparation of his Nouvelle Géographie universelle, compiling statistics on Central America. He also assisted students at the University of Geneva in arranging a celebration in honor of the Haymarket Martyrs, who had been hanged in Chicago in 1887, for which he was expelled as a dangerous agitator. Returning to Italy, Gaileani continued his agitation, which got him into trouble with the police. Arrested on charges of conspiracy, he spent more than five years in prison and exile before escaping from the island of Pantelleria, off the coast of Sicily, in 1900.

Galleani, now in his fortieth year, began an odyssey that landed him in North America. Aided by Elisée Reclus and other comrades, he first made his way to Egypt, where he lived for the better part of a year among a colony of Italian expatriates. Threatened with extradition, he moved on to London, from which he soon embarked for the United States, arriving in October 1901, barely a month after the assassination of President McKinley. Settling in Paterson, New Jersey, a stronghold of the immigrant anarchist movement, Galleani assumed the editorship of La Questione Socialelhe Social Question, then the leading Italian anarchist periodical in America. Scarcely had he installed himself in this position when a strike erupted among the Paterson silk workers, and Galleani, braving the anti-radical hysteria which followed the shooting of McKinley, threw all his energies into their cause. In eloquent and fiery speeches he called on the workers to launch a general strike and thereby free themselves from capitalist oppression. Paul Ghio, a visitor from France, was present at one such oration. "1 have never heard an orator more powerful than Luigi Galleani," he afterwards wrote. "He has a marvelous facility with words, accompanied by the faculty—rare among popular tribunes — of precision and clarity of ideas. His voice is full of warmth, his glance alive and penetrating, his gestures of exceptional vigor and flawless distinction."

[[Paterson N.J. was an important city for Italian Anarchists as it was there that Gaetano Bresci --Born in Tuscany in 1869, killed May 22, 1901 by prison guards who claimed it a "suicide--was working & living in when mass protests over high bread prices all over Italy led to the massacre of hundreds of peaceful demonstrators in Milan by the canons of General Bava Beccaris. To honor this brutal "return to order,' King Umberto I decorated the butcher-General. Determined to kill the king. Bresci went to Italy & in Monza, where the King was visiting, put three bullets into him on July 29, 1900]]

The strike occurred in June 1902. Clashes took place between the workers and the police, shots were fired, and Galleani was wounded in the face. Indicted for inciting to riot, he managed to escape to Canada. A short time after, having recovered from his wounds, he secretly recrossed the border and took refuge in Barre, Vermont, living under an assumed name among his anarchist comrades who regarded him with intense devotion. It was in Barre, on June 6,1903, that Galleani launched La Cronaca Sovversiva, the mouthpiece for his incendiary doctrines and one of the most important and ably edited periodicals in the history of the anarchist movement, its influence, reaching far beyond the confines of the United States, could be felt wherever Italian radicals congregated, from Europe and North Africa to South America and Australia. In 1906, however, during a polemical exchange with G.M. Seratti, the socialist editor of Il Proletario in New York, the latter revealed Gaileani’s whereabouts (a charge also levelled at the English writer H.G. Wells), and Galleani was taken into custody. Extradited to New Jersey, he was tried in Paterson in April 1907 for his role in the 1902 strike. The trial, however, ended in a hung jury (seven for conviction, five for acquittal), and Galleani was set free.
Galleani returned to Barre and resumed his propaganda activities. Now in his late forties, he had reached the summit of his intellectual powers. Over the next forty years his fiery oratory and brilliant pen carried him to a position of undisputed leadership within the Italian-American anarchist movement. An eloquent speaker, Galleani had a resonant, tilting voice with a tremolo that kept his audience spellbound. He spoke easily, powerfully, spontaneously, and his bearing was of a kind that made his followers, Sacco and Vanzetti among them, revere him as a kind of patriarch of the movement, to which he won more converts than any other single individual. Galleani was also a prolific writer, pouring forth hundreds of articles, essays, and pamphlets that reached tens, perhaps hundreds, of thousands of readers on several continents. Yet he never produced a full-length book : the volumes appearing over his signature, such as Faccia a Faccia coi Nemico, Aneliti e Singulti, and Figure e Figuri, are collections of shorter pieces previously published in La Cronaca Sovversiva. In this respect he resembles Johann Most, Errico Malatesta, and Benjamin Tucker (author of Instead of a Book : By a Man Too Busy to Write One), rather than, say, William Godwin, Pierre-Joseph Proudhon, or Peter Kropotkin
