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.

Help Silwan Resident Adnan Gheith Stay in Jerusalem

Dear friend,

I know the Occupation in and out - I lived under it my entire life,
but even I cannot imagine being in Adnan Gheith's position. I don't
want to believe that something like this is possible, and I want to do
all I can to stop what Israel is trying to do to him.

On November 28th, Adnan, a Silwan grassroots organizer, received
written notification that Israel intends to issue an order expelling
him for a four months period from his city - Jerusalem. Adnan is a
resident of Silwan, and a member of the al-Bustan Neighborhood's
committee, which was formed to oppose plans for massive house
demolitions. In a reality where Palestinians' right for freedom of
expression in not even lip service, organizing your community against
its impending destruction is reason enough to be ripped from it.

The order against Adnan is not part of a legal process where
suspicions, charges or evidence have any part. It is an administrative
order that circumvents the rule of law, which forms the foundation of
western democracy. In this harsh reality, a person's rights are taken
without due process, with no charges, based on secret evidence and
with no possibility to truly defend oneself. It is the essence of a
Kafkaesque legal procedure in the taunting maze of the Occupation's
bureaucracy and power.

But it is not too late to act up and make a difference. Adnan's
expulsion from his city and family and life, can be prevented.

Please use the template in the following links to ask your government
to speak up against Adnan's expulsion from the only home he has and
against the demolitions in Silwan. - Available & ready made letters:
