I've had some very very bad days recently. Then I remember; I am at least not in prision as is Leonard Pelltier.
Sometimes I wonder if he knows why I live in Canada; I opened my big mouth about my disgust for his imprisonment to Senator Paul Wellstone back in 1993 and so my family got SET UP to be thrown out under a quota system under the War on Drugs.
And do NOT doubt it: I really was a founding member of AIM.

Emergency Protest for Leonard Peltier in San Francisco
Saturday Jan 24th, 2009
On short notice the American Indian community and their supporters came out in the rain today in San Francisco to protest this attack on Leonard Peltier. Family members of Leonard feel this cowardly assault was orchestrated by the FBI to prejudice his next parole hearing. Today’s demonstration began at the new federal building and then marched to the Phillp Burton Federal Building. Tony Gonzalez, Director of AIM West, led a delegation inside to house leader Nancy Pelosi’s office to demand a congressional hearing into the attack on Leonard and the policies of all federal prisons. To keep up to date on these developments contact AIM-West at 415-557-1492 or gazelbe [at] yahoo.com
“My brother Leonard was severely beaten upon his arrival at the Canaan Federal Penitentiary. When he went into population after his transfer, some inmates assaulted him.”
