Racism is a much more clandestine, much more hidden kind
of phenomenon, but at the same time it's perhaps far more terrible than it's ever been.

Liberate Leonard Peltier » A Call to Action

A Call to Action - Liberate Leonard Peltier
Ironically, on this day in 1789, Parisians liberated an infamous French prison known as the Bastille. The fortress-prison often held people jailed on the basis of arbitrary royal indictments and had been known for holding political prisoners whose writings had displeased the royal government.
Sound familiar?

Friends and supporters, in the spirit of Bastille Day and the promise of justice for all, we must liberate Leonard Peltier.

Take action now and don't stop until Leonard Peltier is free!

Despierta, ya el cielo se enrojece,
ya se presentó la aurora,
ya cantan los faisanes color de llama,
las golondrinas color de fuego,
ya vuelan las mariposas.

Awake, it’s dawn,
already the sky is turning red,
already sing the flame colored pheasants,
the fire colored swallows,
already are flying the butterflies.

Who dies becomes a god.

Abolition of Death Penalty 144th anniversary

1st of July 2011

144 years since the death penalty was abolished
in Portugal

Portugal was the first European country to abolish the death penalty and renounced its application well before it was legally abolished.


The tragedy of man, 'a postponed dead body' as Fernando Pessoa said, does not need an untimely exit from the stage. It is tense enough without an end that is artificial and planned by butchers, megalomaniacs, potentates, racisms and orthodoxies. Therefore, being human, we demand unequivocally that all peoples should have a code of humanity. A code that for all citizens guarantees the right to die their own death.
