Vivienne Westwood...meet Amy Goodman
God Bless Vivienne Westwood's crazy (and frequently bustled) ass!
Wearing two sparkling little devil's horns in her bright red hair, Westwood told reporters she wanted to raise attention to the case of Leonard Peltier, a American Indian activist convicted for the 1975 killings of two FBI agents.You can learn more about Leonard Peltier here -- or download his interview (as MP3) from Democracy Now's website by clicking here!
"Leonard Peltier is innocent. He's been in jail for 30 years now," Westwood said, pointing to the invitation letter for her show, featuring a blue penis with wings and the word "Innocent."
"The Greek penis is a good luck sign. It suits Leonard, because if you're in the wrong place at the wrong time and you get arrested, maybe you're getting jailed for the rest of your life. So you need good luck not to be a criminal," she said.
