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.

National Museum of Contemporary Art Korea is pleased to announce official opening of Nuclear Power Plant Art Project in Yeonggwang and its first commissioned site-specific installation entitled, Earth-Water-Fire-Air by Kimsooja. This project is the power plant's first of the public art project series organized to transform the city of Yeonggwang into the place where man and the nature; energy and technology converge. World's renowned artists are scheduled to create site-specific installations that deal with the nature and energy around the nuclear power station. Utilizing 1,192 meter long, 8 meter wide boardwalk on the breakwater toward a lighthouse at the end, this project marks first of many hand-in-hand efforts by power plants and artists as venues is extended to other nuclear power plants including the ones in Uljin, Gori, Wolsung, etc.

For the first of the series, Kimsooja's six channel video installation from Earth-Water-Fire-Air on going project is selected and will be projected every night onto the screens; each of them are spaced approximately 200 meters apart along the water break. The main concept of the series is created based on four fundamental elements of nature: Earth - Water - Fire - Air constantly interrelate to one another as they continue to merge, transform and extinct while organically embrace and exclude to one another. Video footages taken in Lanzarote Island and Guatemalan volcanoes are featured as the artist's visual manifestation of nirvana in which each four basic elements reincarnate; burning lava flow became rocks and dust that blew in the air. Titles of each videos, Fire of Earth, Water of Earth, Earth of Water, Air of Fire, Air of Earth, Air of Water, Fire of Air, Water of Air support such interchanging idea that characteristics of one element is created by the other elements that is related to eastern philosophy, such as Zen Buddhism and Taoism. The artist questions the nuclear power energy as a tool that has two sides of blade revealing the power of yin and yang energy that recreate both productive and destructive energy. This project challenges us to relocate to our origin and to contemplate the peaceful and productive use of the natural energy for the only earth we live on.
