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.

Today is Human Rights Day,--Amnesty International USA

---------- Forwarded message ----------

Subject: Today is Human Rights Day
To: David Chirot <>

Dear David -

Today, on Human Rights Day, we shine a light on Liu Xiaobo. He is being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize today for his long and non-violent struggle for fundamental human rights in China, but cannot accept this prestigious award in person because he is serving an 11-year prison sentence for proposing democratic reforms.

This Nobel Laureate should be freed, immediately and unconditionally.

Amnesty International has been shining a light on injustice for 50 years. Liu Xiaobo's story reminds us to never let it fade. Your help couldn't come at a better time. Please join us!

- Larry

Shine a light to the future - Larry Cox
Imagine what great victories we have yet to achieve together. Celebrate Human Rights Day with a gift to Amnesty International.
Dear David,

Where will you be next Friday, December 10th? It's Human Rights Day, the day the world commemorates the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The Declaration presents a towering vision of equality and peace and is the blueprint for all that we do at Amnesty.

Our mission is to make all of the human rights enshrined in the Declaration a reality for everyone, everywhere.

On this Human Rights Day, Amnesty will be on the ground in 150 countries, side-by-side with our 2.8 million supporters, defending freedom and humanity.

Celebrate Human Rights Day with Amnesty. Join us today.

Since 1961, we've celebrated Human Rights Day the Amnesty way – with global action. Since its founding Amnesty International has campaigned on behalf of thousands of unjustly imprisoned individuals. We fight to abolish torture and the death penalty, and work to alleviate human suffering the world over. Our work continues because we know our letters and our actions change lives.

"All of these letters and signatures were extremely important in keeping Tissa's case alive and finally bringing about his release. We urge all of you to continue your good work so that others who are wrongly held will be able to survive."

Ronnate Tissainayagam, wife of former Sri Lankan prisoner of conscience J.S. "Tissa" Tissainayagam, freed in June 2010 thanks to Amnesty members

Together we've been fighting bad guys and shining a light on injustice since 1961. Tomorrow's victories are only possible with the financial support of people like you.

Shine a light with me to the future. Join us today.

With your support, our best days are ahead.

The most successful
human rights movement
in history.
