Support the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians

May 10, 2009

The Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians passed a resolution late last year requesting Peltier’s transfer into their custody to serve the remainder of his sentence. Family members are supportive of such a transfer. Alternatively, family members want Peltier transferred closer to home, either to FCI Sandstone (MN) or FCI Oxford (WI). Peltier’s security rating has been greatly reduced by the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) in recognition of his model behavior for the past 30 years.

Due to YOUR actions, Leonard was transferred back to Lewisburg after being attacked and injured by young gang members at USP-Canaan in Waymart, Pennsylvania. But we must keep up the pressure on the BOP to transfer Leonard to one of the three above locations. Today and every day, make your voices heard. Send letters, call, and/or e-mail the director of BOP.
