“Leonard Peltier Tribunal on the Abuse of Indigenous Peoples Rights.”
Sounds official doesn’t it? But amounted to little more than attempting to put lipstick on a pig.
It was a travesty, a “Human Rights Tribunal” cobbled together by AIM, an organization that violated the human right to life of Annie Mae Pictou Aquash, Perry Ray Robinson Jr, and countless other victims.
The list of “witnesses” included those with either direct participation
or knowledge in her abduction, interrogation, and subsequent murder.
Among them Bill Means ( brother of serial loud mouth and con artist Russell Means) whose house it was where the call was taken to murder Annie.
One can’t help but wonder if “star witnesses” like Banks received an
appearance fee as he did for “gracing” the podium at Vern Traversie’s
Did he bring along some syrup, carpet cleaner, and cd’s to hustle on the side? Conduct a pay to pray ceremony?
“ANY MAN CAN WITHSTAND ADVERSITY, IF YOU WANT TO TEST HIS CHARACTER GIVE HIM POWER”.
Obviously Banks and the rest of the AIM leadership failed that test miserably.
