Propaganda campaign against AIM and Peltier


Revisionist history at work. Have you seen this ad?

FBI Special Agent in charge Joseph Trimbach and John Trimbach will debate (?) AIM’s legacy and challenge the three pillars of AIM: COINTELPRO versus AIM, the Anna Mae murder investigation and Leonard Peltier as a political prisoner.
Tim Giago, Pine Ridge Sioux Indian Reservation resident and member of the Oglala Lakota Nation, will speak about the early beginnings of his newspaper, the Lakota Times, his encounters with AIM and his frustrations with government agencies, especially the Indian Boarding School system.
The presentation will feature film clips, still pictures and personal experiences and observations.
They will tell their story...Come tell yours.

Michigan State University
Kellogg Center Auditorium
4:00 p.m.
The gang of three. (Actually, these days, it's more like the gang of five... but who's counting?) Oh, but due to illness, Giago won't attend. So-called journalist Paul DeMain will appear in his place.

How is this a debate when NO opposing view is presented? Well, it's not. That's the point.

The event is sponsored by:

Mmmm... writing programs. Must be fiction writing, huh?
