PART TWO of two, "Freedom and it's expression" [or if you will] 'Freedom - an expression: a request to free 6 times Nobel nominee Leonard Peltier

Today I bring you a man that has (to save time I'll quote a page on the myspace network)

«” And yet Leonard Peltier has remained a prisoner for more than 33 years. Fifty five United States Senators and Congressional Representatives (including Democrats and Republicans) have filed an appeal brief demanding that Peltier receive a new trial. Amnesty International has repeatedly called for Peltier’s immediate release from prison, governments from all over the world have passed resolutions insisting that Peltier be released, and a large contingent of distinguished human rights advocates have been very outspoken in their strong support for Peltier - including six people who have already received the Nobel Peace Prize: Nelson Mandela (1993), Rigoberta Menchú Tum (1992), Mikhail Gorbachev (1990), the 14th Dalai Lama (1989), Archbishop Desmond Tutu (1984), and Mother Teresa (1979). Despite his well known status as a political prisoner, however, the basis for Peltier’s Nobel nominations has been his remarkable success in furthering the causes of peace and human rights.»

The first part of this message written July 3rd looked to the east as was in respect to:

Aung San Suu Kyi / Liu Xiaobo

Now I look to the west.

For more on Leonard Peltier here are two links one with a quick review regarging the case

Here is the petition, please sign. They need approximately 4000 more signatures by the end of October (approximately) to take it to President Obama.
This 1976 imprisonment is nonsense.

Silence, they say, is the voice of complicity.

But silence is impossible.
Silence screams.
Silence is a message,
just as doing nothing is an act.
Let who you are ring out & resonate
in every word (and) every deed.
Yes, become who you are.
There's no sidestepping your own being
or your own responsibility.
What you do is who you are.
You are your own comeuppance.
You become your own message.
You are the message.

In the Spirit of Crazy Horse

(Leonard Peltier)

Being Portuguese
(and Canadian, but today it is my Portuguese 'persona' that cries)
- the subject of political prisoners, repression and oppressive rule makes my heart bleed.

It is easy to cast an outraged eye to the orient regarding Human Rights (and rightfully so), but in the West there is no less outrage, it's just painted differently.. I bring you a man who has been wrongfully in jail for the past 35 years and is mortally ill. A man who should be at home for the little time he has left to enjoy the laughter of grandchildren..
Moreover in the West there are american states (not all) who take it upon themselves to be above God and decide for themselves the right to live or die.
This is quite ironic since those same states within the United States are the ones that not only have the highest crime rate (violent), but actually increase in violence despite said punishment. I also know it is easy to point to the US when speaking of ill behaviour.
In Europe illegally and/or immorally war mongers bring money to nations such as France, Germany, England, Portugal, Italy.. while they promote profit from Human carnage. I wonder..
In the South
Australia cannot leave East Timor alone..
(too much black gold)
and the way they defend their countryman is absurd (Julian Assange) who's crime it appears was to show things such as war crimes.

What is wrong with people..?

What is it that they believe they take with them to the grave, money? Power (over what)?
This inhumanity and other vile atrocities (children in Darfur.. ) is in the North, South, East and West.



  1. taken from:

    - One good man or one good woman can change the world, can push back the evil, and their work can be a beacon for millions, for billions. Are you that man or woman? If so, may the Great Spirit bless you. If not, why not? We must each of us be that person. That will transform the world overnight. That would be a miracle, yes, but a miracle within our power, our healing power.
    (Leonard Peltier)
