Thank you for your support. I wanted to mention to you and friends, with the gracious contribution from Ms. Penny Opal Plant and her partner Michael Horse, have kindly donated a beautiful blanket toward the award of Life-Time Achievement, to be given to Mr. Fred Short, during the AIM international Film Festival at the BRAVA Theater Center, 2781 24th St. starting at 11:45 am! Mr. Bill Means, M.C. and Victoria Gemmill, film presenter, will be on hand to give the award.
And by the way, many of us are gathering at 9 am at Dolores Park in San Francisco, and start walking at 10 am down 24th Street toward the BRAVA Theater! This is done in solidarity with Indigenous peoples throughout the Americas who on this historic day commemorate our survival and step forward into the future.
I hope the word gets around and folks are able to be there!
See the list of film screenings, attached!
Thanks again,
Tony Gonzales

About Censored News
Censored News was created in response to censorship by Indian Country Today. Censored News publisher Brenda Norrell was a longtime staff reporter for Indian Country Today, when she was censored repeatedly and terminated in 2006. Now in its 9th year with no advertising, grants or sponsors, Censored News continues as a labor of love, a service to grassroots Indigenous Peoples and human rights advocates.

Brenda Norrell has been a news reporter in Indian country for 33 years, beginning at Navajo Times during the 18 years that she lived on the Navajo Nation. She served as a stringer for AP and USA Today on the Navajo Nation and later was based in Tucson and traveled with the Zapatistas in Mexico.

After being blacklisted by all the paying media, Norrell has continued to work without pay, providing live coverage with Earthcycles from Indian lands across the US, including live coverage of the Longest Walk, with the five month live talk radio across America in 2008.
