Attention Leonard Peltier Supporters

Free Leonard Peltier

Mass Call-In to CNN Monday, July 11, 2011

Posted by Leonard Peltier Defense Offense Committee on Friday, July 8, 2011 at 2:52pm on FACEBOOK

Mass Call-In to CNN Monday, July 11, 2011

 

Join us in a coordinated mass call-in to CNN on behalf of Leonard Peltier. Shut CNN down until they realize they have a story.

 

On Monday, July 11th, at 10 a.m. (Eastern Time), start calling with your statement. It is important that the calls to CNN start promptly at 10 a.m. Insist that they cover the injustice posed by the continuing imprisonment of Leonard Peltier. Advise them of Leonard’s current situation (see http://lpdoc.blogspot.com/2011/07/leonard-peltier-in-hole-at-lewisburg.html), and tell CNN personnel that they should contact the Leonard Peltier Defense Offense Committee at 701-235-2206 for information and referrals.

 

Then call back and ask for specific news anchors to cover/respond. Remember to be firm, but polite. Tell them freedom for Peltier is the only solution to this 35+-year injustice.

 

They may tell you that they get their stories from their affiliates (local) channels. While this is true, it is also true that they cover both whatever they wish and stories that demand coverage. We MUST demand coverage.

 

Call CNN at 404-827-1500 at 10 a.m., Monday, July 11, 2011.

Dial one for both of the first and second automated prompts/choices.

 

You also may submit story ideas online. Visit http://www.cnn.com/feedback/forms/form11e.html to submit a story idea or http://www.cnn.com/feedback/tips/newstips.html to submit a news tip.

 

Or Tweet them: @TeamCNN.

All Tracks Arranged, Produced and Written By Little Steven (aka Steve Van Zandt)

 

Lyrics: 

 

Leonard Peltier sleeps in a prison tonight

 

For 400 years he’s lived with justice washed white

 

His crime was tradition spoken with pride

 

 

 

And the evidence that put him there

 

Was deliberately falsified

 

And the government spends a lot of money

 

To keep the red man quiet

 

 

 

He should say what he wants to say

 

And it’s time we listened

 

He should pray where he wants to pray

 

Without asking permission

 

 

 

Leonard Peltier

 

Where is the justice for Leonard Peltier?

 

 

 

June ’75 Pine Ridge Reservation

 

Two FBI trespass Lakota Nation

 

Looking for trouble their army waiting outside

 

 

 

And trouble they brought some

 

They were pawns in the big game

 

For stolen minerals and tourists

 

They were sacrificed in profit’s name

 

 

 

And what would you do?

 

As you stare into the face of

 

The genocide of your people

 

Put yourself in the place of

 

 

 

Leonard Peltier

 

Where is the justice for Leonard Peltier?

 

 

 

Somebody ask the Federal Bureau of Investigation

 

Somebody ask the Bureau of Indian Affairs

 

Somebody ask the Bureau of Land Management

 

Somebody ask the Environmental Protection Agency

Album Notes :

Hip Hop Activists Unite for Leonard Peltier

Free Leonard Peltier is progressive hip hop’s contribution to the campaign to free Native American activist Leonard Peltier.
Wrongfully convicted in connection with the shooting deaths of two agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in 1977, Peltier maintains his innocence.

“Our mission is to highlight a case that clearly is an abuse of the legal standards of American justice,” said executive producer A-Ron.The first track, “A Piece for Peltier from a Panther Cub,” is an introduction from Chairman Fred Hampton, Jr., the son of Black Panther leader Fred Hampton, Sr., who like Peltier was targeted by the FBI’s notorious counterintelligence program or COINTELPRO. Hampton, Sr., was a Black Panther who was shot to death while sleeping by the Chicago Police in 1969.
“Human rights organizations are trying to right this wrong, but for Peltier the least I can do is write this song. It’s been over 30 years of tears and frustration since the brother stood up with no fear for the nation,” proclaims Rakaa (Dilated Peoples) with 2Mex in their tribute song for Peltier called “Right This Wrong”.Other contributing hip hop artists include Immortal Technique, M1 of Dead Prez, Talib Kweli, Skyzoo, Reks, T-Kash, The Dime, Arievolution & iamani i. iameni, Mama Wisdom, Bicasso of the Living Legends, Eseibio, and Buggin Malone.
The 13-track CD can be purchased on iTunes and at cdbaby.com.Imprisoned for 35 years—currently at the federal prison in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania—Leonard Peltier has been designated a political prisoner by Amnesty International. Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu, 55 Members of Congress and others—including a judge who sat as a member of the court in two of Peltier’s appeals—have all called for his immediate release. Widely recognized for his humanitarian works and a six-time Nobel Prize nominee, Peltier also is an accomplished author and painter.This project is endorsed by the Leonard Peltier Defense Offense Committee.

Posted on behalf of the

Leonard Peltier Defense Offense Committee

June 26, 2010


Greetings,


I want to first say thank you–thank you for taking the time and making the commitment to come to this place–but thank you mostly for remembering. Sometimes I sit in this cage and I find myself wondering if anyone really remembers. Many days, remembering is all my mind allows me to do. So, again, thank you. Thank you for bearing witness and being a part of a living memory.


But maybe the most important thing I’d like to say is don’t forget. Not ever.


You must be the historians who keep this lesson alive because this story isn’t about one day, one event, one person, or even one lifetime. This is a story that goes all the way back to the day a misguided fool, whose name I won’t even mention, led his troops in an attack on innocent people at the Greasy Grass, and in the process go  himself and over two hundred of his troopers killed. And while the victors on that day had no choice but to defend themselves, we have been the victims of a genocidal revenge that continues until this very moment. So don’t forget. Not ever.



It is vengeance that preoccupies the mind of the colonizer. It is this fervor to show us who is boss that led to the massacre at Wounded Knee, the theft of the Black Hills, the establishment of boarding schools, and the criminalization of our languages and traditional ways. It is vengeance that armed the GOON squads, killed our leaders, and surrounded our people at Wounded Knee again in 1973. Revenge is why they today prosecute Indian people for the crimes they know the government committed during their murderous campaigns of the last generation. Vengeance is what killed Joe Stuntz, Anna Mae Aquash, Buddy Lamont and so many others. Getting even is what keeps me in prison. So don’t forget. Not ever.



All of these events are bound together, interrelated and interdependent. And quite clearly the lesson they intend for us to learn is don’t defend yourselves. Don’t stand up for what is right. Don’t think for yourselves. Don’t choose to be who you are. Don’t remember your ancestors. Don’t live in defense of the Earth. Don’t you do it! Don’t even think about it. If you do, this government–this mindset of control–will unleash an attack so vast it will even seek to destroy our genetic memories. So don’t forget. Not ever.

In days past, some among our people were induced to become “scouts”. For whatever reasons, these individuals made possible the treacherous campaigns that resulted in the deaths of countless innocent people. These days–sadly–there are still these types amongst us. The government preys on the weaknesses of these people, inducing them to turn against the rest of us. The government uses this treachery to cover up state sanctioned murder and terrorism. They do this and then tell us that what we remember didn’t really happen at all, as though memory or truth is something to be shaped and molded to fit a preconceived outcome. So don’t forget. Not ever.
.
We gather today after decades and generations of blood and trauma.

We gather in defiance.

And we remember.

We remember not just one day or one event, because remembering what occurred on June 25 or June 26–or any particular date–is important, but not as important as an understanding of the ongoing campaign of colonization. This is a continuing human drama of slaughter and uncontrollable blood lust and we’re still here, engaged in our running defense; praying for balance, peace and justice; and trying to make some sense of it all. Perhaps, in the face of such a menace, the most important thing we can do is remember. So teach your children. Pass this knowledge. Don’t forget. Not ever.


Remembering is resisting and, if we remember, then we’ll be free one day. Free of their mindset. Free of their theft. Free of their guns and their bombs. Free of their cages. Free to be who we are. And free of their fear. That’s the truest freedom of all and true freedom is what this is really all about, not the illusion of freedom they offer us
.
So don’t forget. Not ever.


In the Spirit of Crazy Horse,

Leonard Peltier
