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.

NYT "Mystery" Op-Ed calls for more deaths of innocents in Afghanistan -- Ask the New York Times Public Editor to investigate

NYT "Mystery" Op-Ed calls for more deaths of innocents in Afghanistan
The New York Times op-ed page has given a platform to a "mystery op-ed" of dubious provenance that slammed the Obama Administration for having *too low a tolerance* for civilian deaths in Afghanistan.

Ask the New York Times Public Editor to investigate why this op-ed was published without informing readers who the author is - and what the author's connection might be to those who profit from US use of airstrikes, heedless of civilian casualties.

Think tank tells Israeli government to declare war on peace groups

They're baaaaack - Israel's "most influential" think tank tells Israeli government to "attack" and "sabotage" global peace and human rights groups (as opposed to domestic groups which are already under attack.)
I wrote last month about the Reut (pronounced Ray-OOT) Institute's report on what they see as the new existential threat to Israel. No longer military, the report said, the primary threat to Israel is political. Israel must fight a "delegitimization network" of peace and human rights groups based largely in four international "hubs": Toronto, Madrid, London and the San Francisco Bay Area (where Jewish Voice for Peace is located.)
(Now, more of the report is available on-line, including a cool animated PowerPoint! Read terrific in-depth pieces on the new material by Ali Abunimah and Richard Silverstein.)
There are many astonishing elements of the report. One is the blame it places on others including the global left for the increasing political viability of a one-state solution. In fact it is Israel's never-ending expansion of settlements that has made a two-state solution seem more and more unlikely by the day, not the global human rights movement. What groups like Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) seek to delegitimize is the occupation and massive inequality and human rights violations committed against Palestinians, not Israel itself. Even most Palestinians, polls show, want their own viable state over a one-state solution. (JVP is neutral on the issue of one state or two or three for that matter, supporting any resolution consistent with international law which is largely supported by both parties.)
If the Israelis really wanted the Palestinians to have a state of their own, they could have made it happen years ago and the entire world would have cheered, and since 2002, they would have had full relations with all their Arab neighbors. But instead, the Israeli government has used endless peace negotiations as a way to expand settlements while keeping the international community at bay.  If the one-state solution marks the greatest existential threat to Israel, as the Reut report suggests, the Israeli government has no one to blame
but itself. The global peace and justice movement is the symptom, not the cause.
Secondly, the report actually dares to suggest "sabotage" of groups like Jewish Voice for Peace who are part of an international peace and justice  human rights network and who actively support Israeli and Palestinian activists on the ground (our sites include:,, etc..). We take this very seriously. Perhaps this is the way NGOs are
increasingly handled in Israel, especially under Netanyahu. But it's certainly not how the government, and especially a foreign government, is expected to respond to law- abiding NGOs here in the United States (Ahem, Cointelpro and other efforts notwithstanding). And frankly, we won't stand for it.
Plus it's just a stupid idea.
How a report that says in one breath that Israel's future lies in branding itself as a high-tech, eco-conscious and cultured democracy while simultaneously suggesting "sabotage" and "attacks" on law-abiding peace groups is stunning.  Instead of driving a wedge between "soft" and "hard" critics of Israel, as the report suggests, promoting these kinds of war-like responses against human rights groups will backfire and turn the most casual critics of Israeli policies into supporters of much harsher measures. This, after all, is
the primary legacy of Cast Lead, Israel's massive attack on Gaza's entrapped population.
If the Reut Institute really wanted to offer some helpful advice on how Israel might stop the global Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, they might start by advising the Israeli government to end the

Final Day: 'Head to Head' for Transitions 9, The Exchange, Penzance

Subject: Final Day: 'Head to Head' for Transitions 9, The Exchange, Penzance
Date: Sat, 20 Feb 2010 09:21:02 +0000

**Apologies for cross postings**

Colleagues and Friends,

Between Tuesday 16th and Saturday 20th February we have been taking part in week 4 of The Newlyn Gallery and The Exchange's yearly Transition exhibition - an opportunity for artists, or artist groups, to use the gallery space at The Exchange to look at how a series of works is developing or to try out ideas for an installation or interactive project.

'Head to Head'
The functions of the body and particular the head as a verbal communication centre and sensory platform has played an intrinsic part in most of Zierle and Carter's collaborative performance work. Having previously used various methods of wrapping and revealing the head from its covers, the two performers will now experiment with new materials and imagery, looking for a 'poetic visual language' and the relationships between the rational aspect of the head and the inner sensing of intuitive knowing. Using Transition 9 as a testing ground, Zierle and Carter will explore unusual ways of constructing these 'head disguises', trying out new functions and actions in the space whilst continually evaluating the process. For the development of the work the audience's role as collaborator and witness will be key.

Transitions 9 programme:

Transition has made a successful annual contribution to Newlyn Art Gallery's exhibition programme since 2000 and Transition 9 will be the first time the exhibition project takes place at The Exchange in Penzance. Transition gives artists the time and space to take ideas forward in a public environment, aiming to resolve conceptual and practical issues, without the constraints of presenting a finalised exhibition.

Please find attached a poster and a selection of images from this week for reference. For more information on Transitions 9 please click here. Transitions 9 takes place from Tuesday 26th January until Saturday 20th February with 4 weekly slots.

Thank you and we hope you can make it along today.

Warm regards

Alexandra Zierle & Paul Carter
