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.

View our complete watch list
for the November 12th Conference.

Our list includes many important cases on a wide range of topics. Read the entire list or use the clickable links in the Index to go right to cases on topics that interest you.
On Friday, November 5th, the Court met for its fifth conference of the 2010 Term. The Court did not grant plenary review of any cases at this conference, but it vacated and remanded one case in a per curiam opinion:
  • 10-91 Wilson v. Corcoran, in which the Court held that the Seventh Circuit improperly granted habeas corpus relief to a state prisoner without finding that his confinement violated federal law.
Among the petitions denied certiorari at the conference were:
  • 09-1380 The National Football League v. Williams, on whether, under the Labor Management Relations Act, offering a defense to state-law labor claims that requires analysis of a collective-bargaining agreement preempts the application of state law in favor of federal labor-law principles.
  • 10-177 Miller v. Jenkins, on whether the Constitution's full faith and credit obligation requires a state to enforce a foreign order arising out of a same-sex marriage when the state's law declares such orders void and unenforceable.
Since our last Watch List, the Court has called for responses in two cases of interest:
  • 10-344 Herrera v. Oregon, on whether the Sixth Amendment's requirement of a unanimous jury verdict for criminal convictions applies to the states.
  • 10-367 Burris v. Judge, on the permissible roles of state legislatures and federal courts in filling a vacant United States Senate seat.
The Court's next conference will be held on Friday, November 12th. Petitions of note to be considered at that conference include:
  • 10-94 Harper v. Maverick Recording Company, on whether individuals who download music from the Internet should be protected under the "inadvertent innocent infringer" defense to copyright infringement.
  • 10-335 Cottier v. City of Martin, on whether statistical evidence is necessary to prove legally significant racially polarized voting in a vote dilution claim under the Voting Rights Act.
  • 10-336 Green v. Fidelity Investments, on whether Age Discrimination in Employment Act plaintiffs must show that age was the "but for" cause of the adverse decision in order to establish a prima facie case.
