Day of Mourning Statement from Leonard Peltier

Day of Mourning Statement from Leonard Peltier 
November 2013

© Leonard Peltier Defense Offense Committee


Good words do not last long until they amount to something. Words do not pay for dead people. They do not pay for my country now overrun by white men. They do not protect my father's grave. They do not pay for my horses and cattle. 
Good words will not give me back my children. Good words 
will not give my people good health and stop them from dying. Good words will not get my people a home where they can live in peace and take care of themselves. 

It makes my heart sick when I remember all the good words 
and all the broken promises. There has been too much talk 
by white men who had no right to talk.

I Didn't Apologize to the Well

I didn't apologize to the well when I passed the well,
I borrowed from the ancient pine tree a cloud
and squeezed it like an orange, then waited for a gazelle
white and legendary. And I ordered my heart to be patient:
Be neutral as if you were not of me! Right here
the kind shepherds stood on air and evolved
their flutes, then persuaded the mountain quail toward
the snare. And right here I saddled a horse for flying toward
my planets, then flew. And right here the priestess
told me: Beware of the asphalt road and the cars
and walk upon your exhalation. Right here
I slackened my shadow and waited, I picked the tiniest
rock and stayed up late. I broke the myth and I broke.
And I circled the well until I flew from myself
to what isn't of it. A deep voice shouted at me:
This grave isn't your grave. So I apologized.
I read verses from the wise holy book, and said
to the unknown one in the well:

Salaam upon you the day you were killed in the land of peace, 
and the day you rise from the darkness of the well alive!

Albert Camus Centenary

Camus by Henri Cartier-Bresson, 1950

Capital punishment is the most premeditated of murders, 
to which no criminal’s deed, however calculated, can be compared. For there to be an equivalency, the death penalty would have to punish a criminal who had warned his victim 
of the date on which he would inflict a horrible death on him and who, from that moment onward, had confined him at his mercy for months. 
Such a monster is not to be encountered in private life.
