Friends Digest Vol. 2, No. 7
"Cowardice asks the question — is it safe? Expediency asks
the question –is it politic? Vanity asks the question — is it
popular? But conscience asks the question — is it right? And there
comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor
politic, nor popular; but one must take it because it is right." —
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
* A Shout Out to Denver *
The Democratic National Convention begins in 7 days.  This is a
unique opportunity to bring the issues of importance to Indian
Country to the attention of the nation and the world. See
It also is a great time to show your support for Leonard Peltier.
As you move around the city next week, be sure to wear your Peltier
shirt, display a banner… oh, hey… fly a flag.  Don’t have one?
Contact <>.
Remember that a picture is worth a thousand words.
Show Leonard — and the world — that he is not forgotten.

* Jericho March: October 10 *
On October 10, 2008, there will be a national mobilization in New
York City calling for amnesty and freedom for all US-held political
prisoners and prisoners of war. 10/10 will mark the 10th anniversary
of the Jericho ’98 march in Washington, DC. Like Jericho ’98, the
aim of 10/10 is not just to get people out to the march, but to
gather folks together to build a lasting relationship and strategize
on how to get our political prisoners and prisoners of war free,
and to continue their and our struggle for justice and freedom. For
more information, visit <>.
Jericho Boston will be holding a series of local events
leading up to 10/10 to help build a strong contingent
from the Boston area. Please plan to attend, get involved,
and get out the word to others. To download flyers, go to
