START A PETITION 27,000,000 members: the world's largest community for good

Focus: Indigenous Rights
Action Request: Petition
Location: United States

We petition the obama administration to: Grant Clemency to Native American activist Leonard Peltier without delay.

10th Circuit Court of Appeals: "…Much of the government’s behavior... and its prosecution of Leonard Peltier is to be condemned. The government withheld evidence. It intimidated witnesses. These facts are not disputed."

While others were acquitted on grounds of self defense, Peltier was convicted in connection with the 1975 shooting deaths of two FBI agents. Evidence shows that prosecutors knowingly presented false statements to a Canadian court to extradite Peltier and manufactured the murder weapon (the gun and shell casings entered into evidence didn't match; this fact was hidden from the jury). The number of constitutional violations in this case is simply staggering.

It's time to right this wrong. Mr. President, you can and must free Leonard Peltier.

This Academy Award-nominated film features compelling first person accounts which reveal the physical, legal, and emotional consequences during the era when abortion was a criminal act. Remembrances include those of women who experienced illegal abortions, doctors who risked imprisonment and loss of their licenses for providing illegal abortions, and individuals who broke the law by helping women find safe abortions.

MR: Sophia, you were saying how when people feel like we’re should-ing them, there is kind of heaviness in trying to work towards a healed Earth now.

How might we get closer to believing that a healthy Earth is attainable and within our reach?

Sophia: So let’s say that everything here has its equal and opposite counterpart. Let’s say the oil spill right now--It’s very easy to put our focus on all of this toxicity that is in our oceans, and to really put our focus there and keep our focus there. Let me tell you, truth, or wisdom, comes from a balanced perspective.

Any time there is something that is toxic, there is equally something that is non-toxic in the world. So, for all of those who are concerned with healing the earth, how we heal the earth is we bring balance to perspective. In seeing the oil spill, I ask all of those who are wanting balance and wanting to heal here: I ask you to look for the opposite of the oil spill.

What is a big, global happening right now? It could be the green movement, it could be all of the assistance we are giving to those in Haiti, it could be anything. What is the equal and opposite thing of gifting that we as humans are creating? Because we as humans have created that toxic spill.

So, what are we doing that equals-- what is the opposite of that toxic spill, and how do we focus our attention on that so that we bring balance? And all of your readers understand that balance is where true wisdom comes from. We don’t find the solution to the oil spill by focusing on the oil spill over and over again.

We find balance by looking to its polar opposite and feeling that all things are equal here. All things Yin, or dark, have an equal and powerful counterpart which is Yang.

So as healers, when we balance, we will begin to find the answers, for the answer is in balance. So you’re asking me what is the answer; how do we find healing on this earth? We find healing through balancing the poles. And balancing the poles means we don’t get sucked into fear. We equal that out in love. So, let me just use the oil spill as an example. Feel all of the anger and all of the rage that comes through our bodies as healers when we think of all of those who took part in allowing this oil spill to happen.

There is a part of us that says, “Wrong! Bad! We must fix it.” So here is the balance (and I know this is esoteric, and I apologize): balance, healing, comes when we send light, love and healing to those who are causing or creating the oil spill. That’s hard to do, right?

So all of those executives who are squirming right now, and the world is pointing their finger at them, shaking their finger at them and saying bad, bad, bad you--imagine as healers we send them love. As we send love to that which is toxic, that’s how we find solutions. That’s how we heal the Earth. We send love to all things that are dark. To all beings that are creating dark. To all beings that are toxic.

So let’s use a random example. Let’s think of all those around the world (Ok, so here’s me being politically incorrect) eating McDonald’s food. Let’s say eating fast food 3-4 times a week, right? Part of us, when we feel that, we go “Oh!” We feel so bad and say, “Wrong.”

Imagine if we now say, “I am going to send love to every single person who is forced to eat McDonald’s out of economic circumstance, out of not having the availability of fresh fruits and vegetables and food around them. So I’m going to send love through that corporation that is McDonald’s, and I myself am going to lift some of that toxic off of fast food.”

Because the more we send love to everyone who is choosing toxic thoughts, toxic choices, the more they have the opportunity to choose something else. So every time we think, “Bad!” I want you to send love, to send light, to send healing and trust to everything we judge that is toxic. That’s how we heal this planet.

If I invented a new catchphrase for Earth Day this year, it would be: lose the obligation, feel the love. The phrase "Earth Day" may bring forth the lower energies of obligation and judgment: obligation, because we might feel like it's something we and everybody else "should" participate in; and judgment, because of the "us-against-them" history around standing for eco-friendly lifestyle. This is seen in divisive political standoffs, from Sarah Palin's trail of dead wolves to Al Gore's history-making movie, to George Bush's indifferent cackle at global warming.

-"Just saying no to everything may be good short-term politics, but it's not leadership. "

-"If anyone from either party has a better approach that will bring down premiums, bring down the deficit, cover the uninsured, strengthen Medicare for seniors, and stop insurance company abuses, let me know. I'm eager to see it.'

-"This freeze won't take effect until next year - when the economy is stronger. That's how budgeting works."

-"But what frustrates the American people is a Washington where every day is Election Day. We can't wage a perpetual campaign where the only goal is to see who can get the most embarrassing headlines about the other side -- a belief that if you lose, I win."

-"To do our work openly; to give our people the government they deserve... That's why -- for the first time in history -- my administration posts on our White House visitors online. That's why we've excluded lobbyists from policymaking jobs, or seats on federal boards and commissions."

-"Washington may think that saying anything about the other side, no matter how false, no matter how malicious, is just part of the game. But it's precisely such politics that has stopped either party from helping the American people."
