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.

Public Citizen: Tell Congress: Public safety before Toyota profits

Subject: Tell Congress: Public safety before Toyota profits

David,

Auto safety has been a cornerstone of Public Citizen's work since our founding nearly four decades ago, and we're counting on Public Citizen activists and supporters like you to help pass a critical public safety bill.

Contact your members of Congress right now and tell them to pass the Motor Vehicle Safety Act to protect consumers from serious defects like those that caused Toyota's runaway vehicles.

The American people deserve to know that when they buy a new car, there are no safety defects that put their families at risk.

The American people deserve to know that government regulators are working for them, not for the auto industry.

The American people deserve to know that automakers that put corporate profits ahead of public safety will be punished with strong penalties.

Tell your Representative and Senators to pass the Motor Vehicle Safety Act before Congress adjourns in December.

Take action now at www.citizen.org/motor-vehicle-safety-act.

At least 98 people died, thousands of consumer complaints were ignored, and millions of Toyota owners were at risk because of serious safety defects that caused their vehicles to accelerate suddenly and unexpectedly.

Automakers, auto dealers and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce are working hard to kill this bill. They don't like it because it will protect you and your family from corporate shenanigans and punish corporate misbehavior.

Tell your Senators that you want tougher penalties for automakers that try to hide dangerous safety defects. Tell your Representative that you want an end to cozy meetings and secret emails between auto executives and government regulators scheming to cover up problems.

Don't let corporate interests drive the safety agenda. Get in the driver's seat!

Call and/or email your members of Congress today and tell them to pass the Motor Vehicle Safety Act.

Thank you for taking action.

Robert Weissman, President

P.S. Please forward this email to anyone you know who wants to make sure that automakers—and our government regulators—are not risking our safety for their profits.
