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.

Act now to support Amnesty's Write for Rights campaign.
"People must work in unison. Only then can we achieve our goal."
– Aung San Suu Kyi, upon her release on November 13th, 2010
Support Write for Rights today!

Dear David,

November 13th, 2010 was a great day for human rights supporters worldwide – Aung San Suu Kyi, Nobel Peace Prize winner who has spent 15 of the last 21 years in detention, was freed.

Aung San Suu Kyi, a human rights advocate, has been the focus of immense public pressure both in her home country of Myanmar and throughout the world. Last year alone, tens of thousands of letters were sent demanding her release

Many of those letters were sent as part of Write for Rights, Amnesty International's Global Write-a-thon. Each year, activists from every region of the world write real letters to bring freedom to prisoners of conscience, demand justice for survivors of torture and offer hope to human rights defenders under attack.

Write for Rights 2010 begins in 2 weeks, and will focus on 12 priority cases around the world. We need your help to sustain this life-changing campaign.



Make a gift to help support Amnesty International's 2010 Write for Rights.

Aung San Suu Kyi knows the power of your letters
