The Voice of Leonard Peltier

Re the Anniversary of Kent State:
"Four dead in O-Hi-O... 40 years. All the same struggle. I remember... The country was so shocked. Young, white, middle class... There wasn't the same outcry when Indians were killed. The government turned on its own... their own kids. That said it all."
Today marks the 40th anniversary of the Kent State Shootings. On May 4th, 1970, National Guardsmen opened fire on hundreds of unarmed students at an antiwar rally at Kent State University in Ohio. The guardsmen fired off at least 67 shots in roughly 13 seconds. Four students were killed and nine others wounded.

Re the 1 May attempt to land Blackhawk helicopters at Wounded Knee:

"Right on! Thank you! Thank you to all of you who stood in their way and defended the ancesters! Stay strong!"
