    Wounded Knee 1973 Commemoration

    Greetings:

       Once again, the American Indian Movement of Florida (Florida AIM) cordially
    invites its members, friends, organizations in solidarity and supporters to
    attend Florida AIM's Commemoration of the Liberation of Wounded Knee.

    The commemoration will be held February 25th at 1:00 PM at North Straub Park
    in downtown Saint Petersburg, FL

    Speakers including Florida AIM Executive Director Sheridan Murphy,
    Information Director Mark Madrid, North Florida Director David Narcomey,
    Security Director George Garcia, Saint Augustine Director Michelle Davis,
    State Support Group Coordinator Gloria Cox and Saint Petersburg Support Group
    Coordinator Rebecca Johns

    Mayoral candidate, APSP Chairman, and longtime ally of AIM and Indigenous
    peoples Omali Yeshitela will also be slated to speak, providing his busy
    schedule permits him too.

    Bands including American Horse, which has played at numerous AIM benefits and
    at the 15th State Conference will play. Other bands may also play.

    Florida AIM will take the time to honor AIM members Buddy LaMonte, Frank
    Clearwater and Pedro Bissonette-who gave their lives for this liberation.
    Florida AIM will also take time to honor the more than 111 AIM members and
    supporters killed in the struggle since 1971.

    Thank You
