“I have no doubt whatsoever that the real motivation behind both Wounded Knee II and the Oglala firefight, and much of the turmoil throughout Indian Country since the early 1970s, was—and is—the mining companies’ desire to muffle AIM and all traditional Indian people, who sought—and still seek—to protect the land, water, and air from their thefts and depredations. In this sad and tragic age we live in, to come to the defense of Mother Earth is to be branded a criminal.” –Leonard Peltier, Prison Writings –
Mother Earth is in peril! The resistance to the continuing abuse of Mother Earth and all that dwell upon her is gaining strength. The movements against Keystone XL Tar Sand Pipeline, the coal trains, Idle No More, Leonard Peltier and many others are all connected. We all seek to resist the harmful things being done to our Mother Earth!
It will take a great united voice from all of us to be heard by those that profit by exploiting Mother Earth for their personal wealth. It will take the people in the streets for the pressure that is needed. Though they have much money and power, we are not weak. We have the power of the spirit of the people united in common cause for the well-being of Mother Earth and the people who dwells upon her.
President Obama has yet to listen to us. But we cannot stop until our goals have been met. For this reason we have called for the NORTHWEST REGIONAL LEONARD PELTIER AND MOTHER EARTH MARCH AND RALLY in Tacoma on May 18. We ask all supporters, all who believe in the well-being of Mother Earth and all those who believe in human rights for all, to please join us here in Tacoma.
