LEAGUE OF THE SOUTH NEWS SERVICE
22 DECEMBER 2007
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The League of the South, the premier Southern Nationalist organization, supports the Lakota Indians in their secession from the American Empire.
On 17 December, the Lakota tribes announced that they were unilaterally withdrawing from treaties signed with the U.S. government. By doing so, the Lakota effectively declared their independence as a free and self-governing people.
The treaties signed with the United States are merely "worthless words on worthless paper," the Lakota freedom activists say on their website.
The treaties have been "repeatedly violated in order to steal our culture, our land and our ability to maintain our way of life," the reborn freedom movement says.
Withdrawing from the treaties was entirely legal, activist Russell Means said. The League of the South wishes the Lakota people well in their bid to govern themselves and to restore their historic culture and lands. We also recognize the legitimacy of their right to self-government.
The League of the South can be reached by e-mail at email@example.com or by phone at (800) 888-3163.
