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.

[It's LIQUID News] Tate Liverpool - Picasso: Peace and Freedom






Untitled Document
It's LIQUID News
 
Picasso: Peace and Freedom
Tate Liverpool
Picasso: Peace and Freedom
 
 
 
 
Dates: 21 May - 30 August 2010
 
Location: Tate Liverpool, Albert Dock - Liverpool, UK
 
 
A major exhibition bringing together over 160 works by Picasso from across the world will be presented at Tate Liverpool from 21 May to 30 August 2010. Picasso: Peace and Freedom will reveal a fascinating new insight into the artist's life as a tireless political activist and campaigner for peace, challenging the widely-held view of Picasso as playboy and compulsive extrovert.
 
After 1944 Picasso became a public figure and hero of left wing causes. He joined the Communist Party in 1944 and during this period the political content of his work came to the fore. His paintings frequently reference key historical moments, chronicling human conflict and war, but also a desire for peace. This is the first exhibition to explore Picasso's political engagement in the Cold War era, and how the artist transcended the ideological and aesthetic oppositions of East and West.
 
The exhibition will bring together almost 60 paintings and sculptures as well as 100 key drawings, prints and posters related to the theme of war and peace from 1944 to 1973. The centrepiece will be The Charnel House 1944-45, which was last seen in the UK 50 years ago - Picasso's most explicitly political painting since Guernica 1937. Monument to the Spaniards who Died for France late 1945 to 31 January 1947 will also feature along with still lifes, The Women of Algiers 1954-55, Las Meninas 1957, Le Déjeuner sur l'herbe (after Manet) 1959-61, and The Rape of the Sabines 1962, painted at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis. A range of documentary materials, including newspapers, magazines and books featuring Picasso's work as well as photographs bring the period alive.
 
Picasso's Dove of Peace became the emblem for the Peace Movement and universal symbol of hope during the Cold War. Picasso's lithograph of the fan-tailed pigeon given to him by Matisse in 1948 was selected for the poster of the First International Peace Congress held in Paris in 1949. Picasso provided variations on the dove for Congresses in Wroclaw, Stockholm, Sheffield, Vienna, Rome and Moscow. The dove had a personal significance for Picasso invoking childhood memories of his father painting doves. In 1949 Picasso named his daughter 'Paloma' – Spanish for 'dove' – born in the same month as the Peace Congress in Paris.
 
The exhibition is organised by Tate Liverpool in collaboration with the Albertina, Vienna where it will be presented 22 September 2010 – 16 January 2011
 
Picasso: Peace and Freedom is curated by Prof. Lynda Morris, AHRC Research Fellow at Norwich University College of the Arts, and Dr. Christoph Grunenberg, Director, Tate Liverpool.
