Join the Climate Emergency Fast, sponsored by Ted Glick, Us Climate

For years I’ve been a coordinator and participant in fasts calling for
Leonard’s release. This fall I’ll be starting a fast in early September, a
Climate Emergency Fast, as part of the mushrooming movement for climate
justice and a clean energy revolution, and I hope you’ll consider joining it
for at least one day.For more information on Climate Emergency Fast for
present and future generations see:

Thanks!
Ted Glick, Coordinator ,- US CLIMATE EMERGENCY COUNCIL
In previous years, activists around the Country joined in solidarity with
Ted Glick and fasted for twelve days during October for Leonard’s freedom.
The 12 day fasts held for Leonard’s freedom have been happening since 1992.
This year as in previous years, Toni Zeidan Co-director for the LPDC will
join Ted and others in their Climate Emergency Fast and encourages
supporters to do so on Sept 4th and also on Sept 12, 2007, Leonard Peltier’s
63rd birthday. You may want to fast throughout these nine days or even
longer, as some such as Ted, are doing. Please let us know your plans. LPDC

"Develop who you are and remain true to your higher self and your integrity
will be an inspiration to others. Show your strengths when necessary, even
if it is in being gentle or humble. Do your best to find the good in all
people and stand and speak up against wrong doing. Respect the earth where
you stand. Many parts of Mother Earth are also held captive behind concrete
and steel. Do your best to recognize inspiration from the Creator. Never be
too proud to say you were wrong or too fearful to stand up for what you know
is right"

A message from Leonard Peltier, and the Leonard Peltier Defense    Committee
To: Leonard Peltier Supporters
From: Leonard Peltier and the Leonard Peltier Defense Committee
Greetings Brothers and Sisters,
I hope my message finds you in the best of health and spirits and that each
one of you is enjoying your summer and looking forward for the Fall Season.
I have always enjoyed the Fall Season.  I still  remember the vivid colors
of the leaves changing and falling in preparation for our Winter.  This Sept
12, 2007, I will be 63 years old, and I can no longer say I am a young man –
eh? Behind bars I have aged from a youth into an Elder.   As the seasons
have passed I have become an elder, my children have grown, and my
grandchildren are now young men and women, and lately I became  a Great –
Grandfather.
 
This year will mark more than 31 years of my unjust imprisonment.  Your
thoughts, supports, letters, cards, prayers, and energy have kept me strong.
I thank you for the lovely cards, and letters that I have been receiving,
for I enjoy hearing from you! Some of you have been writing me for the past
32 years and through your letters have included me in your family
gatherings, festivities and in your life as the years have passed. I thank
you! Many of you are writing me to tell me about the activities and events
that are being held in my honor, and your efforts of joining me and the
Leonard Peltier Defense Committee in our ongoing campaign towards my
freedom.  On a sad note I also receive letters from supporters who identify
themselves as loyal Peltier supporters and yet in their letters their advice
is for the Leonard Peltier Defense Committee to be closed and how
inappropriate it is for me or the LPDC  to be asking for support and help so
that we can continue our ongoing work towards my freedom. I once wrote in a
message a few months ago that we are all climbing the same mountain, just on
different sides at times. As I read my letters from supporters that write to
tell me of their ongoing work towards my freedom and state that we are all
working together,  I feel inspired and  know that each one of us is working
in unity and solidarity from all sides of the mountain until we win this
ongoing struggle for my freedom.
As for the "supporters" who write me and offer their advice on closing the
LPDC office, and for the committee to stop raising funds for our legal
campaign, I wonder which mountain they are climbing? Are they maybe working
with an organization that for the past 32+ years has falsified affidavits,
withheld evidence, and has withheld documents in their efforts to keep me
wrongfully incarcerated?  One would start to wonder.
 
My case has been fraught with government misconduct since the beginning. The
Government among other wrongful acts manufactured false evidence, withheld
evidence and coerced witness. We now know that the FBI used confidential
informant sources to compromise attorney/client communications they
illegally used to develop strategies for conviction.   The FBI permitted
informants to attend both my trial and that of my co-defendants. The FBI
however refuses to produce the name(s) of their informants and has been
given unfettered discretion by the courts to keep this information from my
legal team.
On June 8, 2007 my legal team, attorneys, Ron Kuby and David Pressman filed
with the US Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit an appellate brief
asking the Court to review and release some 11,000 pages of documents that
have been withheld for over 30 years.
Indeed, a document recently produced by the FBI and recently introduced  to
a Magistrate Judge established that the FBI intentionally took actions to
try to avoid producing documents in discovery in my case. But again, this
seems to have had no impact on the Court. The United States Federal Courts
have recognized overwhelming evidence of FBI misconduct in my case which has
already been revealed, yet it has continued to allow the FBI to use
exemptions under FOIA to shield its illegal tactics in this case, depriving
me of my rights to a fair trail.
 
 I urge all of you who believe in justice to join my fight and cry out for
the production of all documents related to my case. Why is the FBI still
withholding documents? Why won’t they produce all documents to me? To me the
answer is obvious. I believe the answer is obvious to you also.
 
 The new legal team, attorneys Ron Kuby, and David Pressman, the Leonard
Peltier Defense Committee and I thank you for your support and help.
 
In the Spirit of Crazy Horse,
Leonard Peltier

ACTIVITIES/EVENTS/PROJECTS
In honor of Leonard’s birthday in September, a kick off to a fund raiser.
MySpace is really getting alot of hype with the number of "Friends". We ask
that all of "Leonard Supporters" donate at least a $1. This should be mailed
directly to the LPDC to help cover the upcoming legal appeals. (Heard one
may be coming back to St. Louis so keep an eye out for updates on that)
Please do not limit this to MYSPACE, but spread it around to all your
friends and list. What’s a dollar for someone who has spent so much more on
for the struggle?If you can give more, do so, you may also buy a $10 stone
of the Freedom Walk at  <http://www.freedomwalk.com/>
http://www.freedomwalk.com/
