Support Leonard Peltier – 67 today and still fighting!

September 12, 2011

Today is Leonard Peltier’s 67th birthday.  He’s in dire straits rather than being able to celebrate with family and friends–and he needs your help.

First, have you reached out to your union locals in your community?  Educate union members about the Peltier case and motivate them to work with us towards securing clemency for Leonard Peltier. Don’t be satisfied with a telephone conversation. Schedule a presentation for union members instead. Remember, there’s no substitute for face-to-face interaction. Urge locals to prepare a letter or resolution to send to President Obama in support of clemency. A copy of the same should be sent to the LPDOC. Don’t know what locals are in your area? Visit http://www.unions.org/unions/ to look up locals in your state. You can narrow your search by zip code on the same Web page. Canadian and European labor unions are encouraged to also participate in this effort. Work in solidarity for Leonard’s freedom.

Always express your support for an award of Executive Clemency to Leonard Peltier. Sign our online petition today at http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/Peltier_Clemency2008. Obama can and must free Peltier!

We know you’ve followed the developments in Leonard Peltier’s situation since late June.  You’ve pitched in to defend and protect him.  You can’t know what it means to Leonard to have your support and to know you’re out here fighting for him.

Why is there an effort to destroy Leonard’s good prison record of 15+ years?  What role has the Federal Bureau of Investigation played in recent incidents at the U.S. Penitentiary at Lewisburg?

These are question that must be answered.

Please write or call to demand a congressional investigation into the treatment of Leonard Peltier since late June.

U.S. Senate
Committee on the Judiciary
Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Human Rights
Hart Senate Office Building, Room 807
Constitution Avenue and Second Street, NE
Washington, DC  20510
Phone:  202-224-7703

The Subcommittee must investigate the arbitrary and malicious actions taken by Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) personnel against Leonard at the U.S. Penitentiary at Lewisburg.

Review the details about what has occurred at http://www.whoisleonardpeltier.info/alert.htm.

You might want to draw the Subcommittee’s attention to the video by producer/director Preston Randolph, an interview with former BOP guard Bruce Smith, too.  It’s enlightening–and powerful.

Do it and keep doing it… and thank you for all you do on Leonard’s behalf.
