12/31/2000: New note from Harvey Arden, Leonard Peltier's publisher:

Thanks for the encouragement. I missed 3 phone calls from Leonard when I was out of the country recently. I was scratching my head about what I could say to him when he calls next. But now, because of folks like you, when he calls again I can assure him we're ALL 100% behind him and with him every step of the way. He's the one who taught me that every blow they strike against us makes us stronger.

Hey, I agree, keep the vote goin' on VOTE.COM...They're sneakin' back up on us!

Folks--this is a slanted poll the FBI has jumped of their dirty
little games...let's show'm we have a few hundred thousand supporters ASAP!
Please GO TO THE SITE, vote YES...and do it NOW! ... and get every friend
you know to do the same. Let's turn around these skewed results!

Silence, they say, is the voice of complicity.
But silence is impossible.
Silence screams.
Silence is a message,
just as doing nothing is an act.

Let who you are ring out and resonate
in every word and every deed.
Yes, become who you are.
There's no sidestepping your own being
or your own responsibility.

What you do is who you are.
You are your own comeuppance.
You become your own message.

You are the message.

--Leonard Peltier
