"I will call for a demilitarization of American Foreign Policy, including closing down the School of the Americas, and to stop the major flow of American military aid to countries like Colombia. I would work to create self-sustaining peace and promote a dignified equity in Third World countries, including 100 percent debt relief. I will work for the establishment of a Peace and Reconciliation Commission modeled after South Africa's." (Indian Country, July 22, 2000; photo pcc.edu)
