Paulette Dauteuil is the former Co-chair (2010-2012) and National Secretary (2012-2014) of the National Jericho movement.
I have been involved in revolutionary politics since the mid-60s. I was a member of Venceremos Brigade from Chicago in 1976 and an organizer of Prairie Fire Org. Comm, chapter Los Angeles Ca. 76-79. I became part of the Leonard Peltier Defense Committee in LA and, with Robert Robideau, organized the Los Angeles defense trial of Leonard Peltier after his escape from Lompoc Federal Prison. We put together for 3 months 3 defense houses and raised enough money to feed all the Native People and activists who participated during his trial.
