SAN FRANCISCO --- We had a terrific ‘big time’ during “Liberation Day” 2/27/18 with Madonna Thunder Hawk, Lakota, Sarah James, Arctic Village, Alaska, Jessie Riddle, Pit River, California, and John Iverson, Annishinabe, participating as our special guests!
We had roll-call, too, and read the names of those 65 people who died or were killed during the ‘Reign of Terror’ (1973-76) as absent.
Mr. Emory Douglas, former Black Panther Minister of Culture, artist/activist, was also present in solidarity, and with a recent poster drawing of Leonard Peltier he sells with half proceeds toward the Leonard Peltier Defense/Offense Committee!
See pictures and voices of solidarity below. Aho! All my relations!

Thank you!
Antonio Gonzales
