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.

Brasscheck TV: Wiki-LEAKS founder an assassination target?


Official lying...

It's big business and the news media has essentially
given up on doing anything about it.

But one group - WikiLEAKS - has been more effective at
revealing government "secrets" (i.e. official lies) than all
the US news media put together.

Daniel Ellsberg - who himself was targeted with assassination
by the Nixon White House - believes WikiLEAKS founder is
currently facing a similar threat.

If anything happens to Julian Assange, you can reasonably
assume it was murder by the US government...

...Under direct orders from the Obama White House which has
clearly stated that assassinating US citizens who "threaten
national security" is OK.

SOA Watch: Free the Prisoners! Trial against Michael Walli on Monday, June 14

Free the Prisoners of Conscience - Click here for the prison addresses

SOA Watch News & Updates
Four SOA Watch Activists Incarcerated:
You can jail the resister, but you can't jail the resistance!

While our friends Nancy, Ken, Louis and Michael - the 'SOAW 4' - are spending their days in prison for speaking out against the SOA, those responsible for the training of human rights abusers and for the use of torture manuals at the SOA have never even been investigated.

Letters of support written to Nancy, Ken, Louis and Michael would be much appreciated and can be sent to the following addresses:

The 'SOAW 4' were arrested by the military during the 2009 November Vigil, when they crossed onto Fort Benning to carry our message that the School of the Americas must be closed onto the base.

Ken, Louis and Nancy were sentenced to six months in prison - the maximum allowed for the charge of tresspass. The extremely harsh sentences are intended to deter others from following the example of the 'SOAW 4.' Michael, who resisted the judges orders to voluntarily return to Columbus for the court date in January, was arrested by federal marshals and is awaiting his June 14, 2010 trial (9am, at the federal courthouse in Columbus, Georgia) while in jail in Georgia.

They are in there for us, we are out here for them! Write to the Prisoners of Conscience!

Consider engaging in nonviolent direct action:
Keep the pressure on! People who put their bodies on the line to speak in solidarity with the people of Latin America are crucial in the struggle to close the SOA/ WHINSEC.

Stand up for justice at the gates of Fort Benning, Georgia in November:

Monday, June 14:
Federal trial against SOA Watch activist Michael Walli in Columbus, Georgia

Catholic Worker Michael Walli of the "SOAW 4," crossed onto Fort Benning in November 2009 to speak out against the School of the Americas. He was arrested together with Nancy, Ken and Louis. During his November arraignment, Michael told the judge that he would not pay any bail and that he would not voluntarily return for the trial. Michael Walli made good on his promise and Faircloth issued a warrant for Michael's arrest. Federal marshals arrested Michael in March 2010 at the Dorothy Day Catholic Worker House in Washington, DC.

Michael is currently being held at the Irwin county jail and will stand trial before judge Mallon Faircloth in the federal courthouse at 120 12th Street in Columbus, Georgia on Monday morning (June 14, 9:00am).

Support Michael Walli and all political prisoners.

Rest in Peace

The former SOA Watch Prisoners of Conscience Art Landis and Sister Sheila recently passed away. Sister Sheila was part of the 'SOAW 16' in 2006 and Art served a 30-day sentence in 2008 as a result of his nonviolent witness against the SOA/WHINSEC during the November Vigil in Fort Benning, GA. Sister Sheila and Art will be missed.

Dear David-Baptiste,

With the world's attention on the blockade of Gaza, more and more people are finally starting to understand the extent of the suffering there – but for ANERA, this human tragedy is not new. We have been with the families as they suffered since the blockade was started three years ago today.

Having visited thirteen times since 2007, I can tell you that families are struggling more and more in Gaza every day and that includes ANERA's Gaza staff.

They are 17 dedicated people, born and raised in Gaza, who we rely on to deliver support to their community. Today, I'd like to introduce you to one of them.

Rania joined ANERA's staff after graduating from the University of Colorado Journalism Department. She put together a brief video this past Tuesday, June 8, to give a glimpse of Gaza now.

Click here to watch Rania's video report.

Three years of blockade have deprived 1.5 million men, women and children of the tools they need to rebuild and survive. It has caused suffering, sickness and death for innocent families. We are one of the few organizations able to deliver donated medicine and other supplies into Gaza, but our work needs to touch more lives.

Whenever I return from the Middle East, I wish that people everywhere could see with their own eyes the dilemma of innocent families there. I hope that Rania's video helps you and your friends see the importance of our work.

Please watch the video and share it with friends and family.

Your kindness and dedication have helped us change lives. I'm very thankful for your ongoing support for families in Gaza and throughout the Middle East. Together we are making a difference.

Silencing Gaza flotilla activists in the United States

The Israeli government, with the aid of its many proxies- especially in the Jewish institutional world, is working overtime after the Mavi Mavera massacre to paint the Gaza flotilla participants as terrorists.
Apparently–jamming satellite communications, absconding with tens of thousands of dollars of equipment, confiscating every photo and video they could find, and releasing pathetically doctored "evidence" (thank you Ali Abunimah and Max Blumenthal and others) is not enough. Now groups are working to keep flotilla human rights activists out of the country.
Here's the petition. Maybe you want to sign it. Mondoweiss has audio of retired US Colonel Ann Wright, who was just in NYC, speaking about what happened. She must be the person they're trying to keep out of the country. Good luck with that.  So much for America-first.

JCRC motto:Meeting challenges indeed. Meanwhile, Iara Lee has even more footage that she and her cameraman were able to sneak off the boat. Unlike the IDF, she has the courage to let you see it unedited and raw.

Videos: What happened on the Mavi Marmara? - More information keeps coming out

In his piece: "IDF Executed Mavi Marmara Victims," Richard Silverstein writes, after describing the fact that a footage of an actual execution of a passenger by an Israeli commando is now available:

"This changes everything. Here for the first time is evidence that the IDF was not just engaged in a defensive operation, but that it had determined to murder passengers. Gone are the hasbara [Israeli official propaganda - RG] rationales which defended Israel and blamed the victims for their own deaths.

I am ashamed of Israel. I am ashamed of my president's response to Israel."

Some of the footage is available with the article on Silverstein's blog "Tikkun Olam":

For a more extensive footage, coupled with an interview with Lara Lee, the journalist who smuggled an hour worth of material off of the Mavi Marmara, go to Democracy Now! at

Avaaz: Please Help: Israel's darkest hour
 - The World in Action Dear friends,

Brave Israelis are fighting for their democracy against escalating attacks on civil liberties and human rights from their far-right government. Help the non-violent peace movement of Israelis and Palestinians overcome the intimidation campaign against them -- donate now to support their efforts:

Donate now!
The Gaza aid flotilla attack was a chilling escalation of what peace advocates across Israel and Palestine are experiencing right now.

Radical extremism is rising in Israel, trampling civil liberties and human rights in the name of "national security". The foreign minister, elected on an openly racist platform, is pushing dark new laws that revoke citizenship for anyone who doesn't swear a loyalty oath, peaceful protesters are met with police violence, and people (mainly Palestinians) are jailed without charge. The media is under pressure, with some commentators alarmed at what they see as creeping fascism. (see sources below)

Many brave Israelis, including thousands of Avaaz members, are fighting for their democracy and for the rights of Jews and Palestinians, including an end to the blockade and the occupation of Palestine. Israelis could help break the Gaza blockade if they joined the next flotilla, but they are facing massive intimidation by the government. This could be the peace movement's darkest hour -- let's send hope. Click below to donate:

Specifically, donations will go to:
  • Support for Israelis to join the next aid flotilla in significant numbers -- this could be a game-changer in the effort to break the Gaza blockade.
  • Legal aid for Israelis and Palestinians who are constantly jailed for non-violent action.
  • Expenses for participants in non-violent action, including around settlement building on Palestinian land in Jerusalem and media efforts around these actions.
  • Infrastructure and training to build the peace movement in Israel over the long term, including online organizing.

Avaaz is a deeply pro-Israeli, pro-Palestinian, pro-peace community. Over 90% of our members support the goal of a two-state solution with safe and secure homes for both peoples. Today, the greatest threat to that goal, and to Israeli safety and security, is now its own radical right wing. That wing is driving an escalation of the conflict that makes peace impossible, and will only jeopardize Israel in the long run. Today, the causes of the Israelis and the Palestinians are one -- both want peace, security, and home to call their own, and that is the cause that Avaaz members all over the world stand with. Our community's members in Israel and Palestine are asking for our help to bravely fight for the cause we all believe in. Let's answer their call:

With hope and determination,

Mail Art Call: Exposition internationale. Les singes de la sagesse – The monkeys of wisdom

Exposition internationale.

Les singes de la sagesse – The monkeys of wisdom


La ville de Chauny (Aisne - France) a comme emblème les singes de la sagesse.

L'origine des singes de Chauny est assez obscure.

Quelques historiens locaux pensaient que ceux-ci étaient la représentation qu'on se faisait des bateleurs, jongleurs et montreurs d'animaux divers qui étaient établis en confrérie à Chauny.

Rabelais, qui a certainement vu les jongleurs de Chauny, parle d'eux dans Gargantua : "Gargantua s'amusait moult à voir les bateleurs surtout ceux de Chauny en Picardie, grands jaseurs et beaux bailleurs de balivernes en matière de singes verts".


Le projet est le suivant :


- Ce projet est ouvert aux Artistes du monde entier ayant envie de partager et exposer leur travail. Toutes les techniques sont acceptées.

- Format 21 cm X 30 cm, support cartonné (pouvant être relié).

- Vous devez représenter votre vision des « singes de la sagesse ».

- Une fois terminée, vous devez envoyer votre œuvre à cette adresse:

« E » - Ambassade d'Utopia – 38 grande rue – 02300 Guivry – France 

- Une exposition des œuvres reçues aura lieu au centre culturel de Chauny, le Forum, en début d'année 2011.

  Les dates précises d'exposition seront données par la suite sur notre blog.

- A l'issue de l'exposition les œuvres seront reliées manuellement par « E » afin de créer des livres d'Artistes qui seront mis à disposition des écoles et médiathèques de la région. Les œuvres connaîtront ainsi une seconde vie dans une exposition itinérante en 2011. Les œuvres ne seront pas renvoyées aux artistes et resteront la propriété de « E » pour d'autres expositions itinérantes…

- Un blog est déjà créé afin de présenter les œuvres reçues et donner des informations sur l'avancement du projet.

- Fin des envois le 31 décembre 2010 pour exposition début 2011.

Le scimmie della saggezza – The monkeys of wisdom

L'emblema della città di Chauny rappresenta le scimmie della saggezza.
L'origine delle scimmie di Chauny è abbastanza oscura.
Alcuni storici locali pensavano che fossero la raffigurazione dei giocolieri e presentatori di animali appartenenti alla confraternita di Chauny.
Rabelais, che ha sicuramente visto i giocolieri di Chauny, parla di loro nel suo libro "Gargantua".

Presentazione del progetto:

- Aperto agli Artisti di tutto il mondo che desiderano condividere ed esporre le loro opere. - --- Sono accettate tutte le tecniche.
- Formato 21 cm x 30 cm, supporto in cartone (eventualmente rilegato)

Say No to Arizona SB1070

Drilling beneath the headlines DAILY.

Dear Reader,

No organization has been more consistently principled in its defense of human rights and intellectual freedom than Amnesty International. I know this well as a former chapter leader in Los Angeles, where we spent many evenings writing letters of support for prisoners of conscience throughout the world. It is worthy of note that Amnesty has now turned its attention to the profound issue of human rights for immigrants in the United States. I hope Truthdig readers will help support this cause.

Amnesty International USA: TAKE ACTION NOW!
Arizona's draconian new immigration law encourages racial discrimination and does nothing to fix our broken immigration system.
Stop the insanity! Fair and humane immigration reform won't happen unless we fight for it.

Dear Friend,

Arizona's stringent new anti-immigrant law, SB1070, has whipped up a firestorm of controversy - with good reason. The law has the effect of legalizing racial profiling.

The draconian new law requires anyone who the police "reasonably suspect" of being an "illegal immigrant" to produce papers proving they are here legally. If for any reason you don't show documentation, you'll be criminally prosecuted for the trespassing, jailed and deported.

SB1070 usurps federal jurisdiction on immigration policy and sets a dangerous precedent other states are already looking to follow. The absence of national immigration reform is no excuse to trample on human rights.

Say NO to Arizona SB1070.

Urge Congress to craft a fair and humane immigration policy that respects human rights.

Demand justice for the women of Atenco

The Arizona law is an assault on the very notion of human rights. It turns the state's Latinos and anyone else who fits a police officer's idea of what an "illegal immigrant" looks like into criminal suspects.

Amnesty has outlined core reform principles at this critical juncture in the immigration debate. Stand with us in championing them:

• Provide a formal process through which undocumented people can obtain legal status.
• Reform immigration policies that unnecessarily separate families.
• Protect the rights of immigrants most at risk
including undocumented immigrants, immigrant women and immigrant children.

Anti-immigrant forces are emboldened; they want other states to enact similar legislation, and they're thirsty for an even bigger victory - sweeping, get-tough federal enforcement legislation.

We must act swiftly to balance the scales of justice.

Speak out against Arizona SB1070.

Thank you for urging Congress to fix our nation's broken immigration system.

In solidarity,

Lory and Sarah, and the rest of the Refugee and Migrant Rights team at Amnesty International USA
