Peace Action West: Where would you rather see that money go? To your schools and roads and communities, or to bombs that could destroy the world hundreds of times over?:

Peace-Action . org: military spending accounts for more than half of the federal government's entire discretionary budget. Nuclear weapons spending alone accounts for over $40 billion annually, and is scheduled to increase. There is an obvious connection between the bloated Pentagon budget and the critical budget shortfalls facing virtually every community in the country.

Occupy DOJ:
In support of Occupy DOJ in Washington, DC, on Tuesday, April 24,
please place a call to Attorney General Eric Holder's comment line
at 202-353-1555.  Speak in support of all political prisoners and
speak out against mass incarceration.

Ask that Mr. Holder conduct an Executive Review of cases involving
political prisoners and claims of wrongful conviction, one that
addresses:

--law enforcement's use of improper techniques or coercive tactics,
as well as fabricated evidence;

--laboratory personnel's use of poor scientific techniques,
mishandling of evidence, provision of skewed or completely false
testimony to support prosecution claims, or providing fabricated
evidence; and

--prosecutorial misconduct such as courtroom misconduct;
mishandling of physical evidence (hiding, destroying, and/or
tampering with evidence, case files or court records); failing
to disclose exculpatory evidence; threatening, badgering, and/or
tampering with witnesses; and using false or misleading evidence.

As regards the case of Leonard Peltier, this review must also
include examination of post-conviction actions on the part of
federal officials, former and active FBI agents, and prosecutors,
to prevent fair consideration of Peltier's applications for parole
and Executive Clemency.

Thank you for all you do on behalf of all political prisoners--in
particular, Leonard Peltier.

 

Make That Call:
Reminder: Please call the White House tomorrow, April 20, in favor of
freedom for Leonard Peltier.  The number for the White House comment
line is 202-456-1111.  If the lines are busy, try the White House
switchboard at 202-456-1414. Ask for the comment line. You may be
placed on hold until the next available staffer can take your call.

 

In Need of Your Support:
Brothers, Sisters, Friends and Supporters,

I'm still here fighting for my freedom.  The government is
fighting just as hard to keep me where I am.  The government also
has unlimited resources, even in such tough economic times. Big
problem, right?

The solution rests with my legal team for the most part.  They're
making headway in a couple of very important directions.  I'm very
optimistic about the work they're doing, too. I believe that 2012
is a critical time for me and that, with your help, I'll see home
again. You can get behind our efforts, right?

Please donate what you can to help us continue the fight.  No amount
is too small.  Mail donations to the LPDOC, PO Box 7488, Fargo,
 ND  58106.

Thank you for all you've done in the fight for human rights.
In particular, thank you for your friendship.

Doksha,

Leonard Peltier

Note from the LPDOC: You may also donate securely online at
http://www.whoisleonardpeltier.info/donate.htm  .

 

Call to Action: Shower the WH with Your Calls:
An excellent way for Peltier supporters to communicate with the
White House is by telephone, i.e., the White House comment line
at 202-456-1111.

On Friday, April 13 and April 20, please take time to call the White
House to ask that President Obama free Leonard Peltier.  If the lines
are busy, try the White House switchboard at 202-456-1414. Ask for
the comment line. You may be placed on hold until the next available
staffer can take your call.

Remember that some 2,500 to 3,500 phone calls are received daily
via the White House comment line. Peltier supporters often receive
a busy signal simply because we're competing for phone time. Hit
that redial button and try again. If you don't reach an operator
in the morning, try again in the afternoon.

Each of us must place a call.  Urge your colleagues, friends, and
family members to call the White House, too.  On April 13 and April
20, make your voices heard.

Supporters from around the world may participate in this effort by
sending an e-mail to the White House:

http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/submit-questions-and-comments  .

Thank you for all you do on Mr. Peltier's behalf.

Sample letter text:

There is no clean coal, oil, or nuclear waste, we must struggle with la machine, not unbecome by replicating it; evolve or die- viva la evolution.  The more you give art, the more it is, including the art of living; remember, Carlos Castaneda said, "Discipline is the art of feeling awe"- viva la evolution.  No nuclear is good nuclear, splitting Adam and splitting atom are hubris that dictate extinction, technocracies of the world are realizing that they are wrong, unnatural technological advance is no panacea, nature's balances and Gaia's way is the only way humanity will be alive in the future; we must protect those shining examples of how to live, the uncontaminated tribes of your country, from the ravages of supposed 'progress', now.  As minds of somas are realizing the intellect cannot lead, for, the life does not follow.  Happy Rhodes sings, “there is a beacon in the sky meant to catch your eye…”, we are the sun and earth, et al, in enumerable variations, fueled by solar energy, etc.; how can some still pretend to not know solar, and renewable energies, are the way- viva la evolution, viva green party.  If we switch quick enough to totally renewables, like solar, which we are in combination with the earth, we may stop the extinction of humanity and large mammals we see on our horizon; racing towards us at ever-increasing speed from humanities' future.  Cult of personalityism=popularityism=vampirism=centrism=materialism=machiavellianism=cannibalism=extremism= supremacy=fascism=extermination=nazism=extinction.  Thanx.  Goodbye.

Matutinally Yours,

(include your name, address, and, if you're writing a letter to the editor, your phone # so they can confirm it's your letter)
