– Please Post Widely –

Dear Friends and Supporters,

First, Leonard and I want to thank you for the outpouring of support. With

your help, we’re hopeful that Leonard will receive proper medical care from

prison authorities.

Within the last several days, Leonard has finally been able to see a doctor.

Together, they discussed Leonard’s care and reviewed his medications and

such. However, the issue of the diabetes testing kit remains.

Citing security reasons, U.S. Penitentiary-Lewisburg will not allow Leonard

to have a diabetes testing kit in his cell. But Leonard is not asking that

he be allowed to have a kit in his cell. Often, when he goes to the

infirmary, there is no one there to help him and he has to keep returning to

the infirmary until he’s able to speak with medical personnel. The

infirmary has a "general" kit, too. It’s used by other prisoners and due to

the embedded memory in the monitor, Leonard could be getting false readings.

We’re asking that Leonard be allowed to have his own kit at the pharmacy for

accurate readings, as well as easy and regular access. In this way, he’ll

be able to test himself three or four times a day and hopefully achieve a

balanced blood glucose level.

Please continue to urge prison authorities to provide Leonard with a

diabetes test kit so that he can control his diabetes. We also want to see

to it that Leonard receives diabetic shoes that will help him with his

diabetes-related foot problems. If the prison cannot provide such things,

the family will work with an approved medical supply company to see to it

that Leonard gets what he needs.

Amnesty International considers Leonard Peltier a "political prisoner" who

should be "immediately and unconditionally released." Leonard Peltier, now a

great-grandfather, is a citizen of the Anishinabe and Dakota/Lakota Nations

and a tireless advocate for Indigenous Rights. A participant in the

American Indian Movement, he went to assist the Oglala Lakota people on the

Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in the mid-1970s where, on June 26, 1975, a

tragic shoot out occurred. He was wrongfully convicted in the deaths of two

agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and has been illegally

incarcerated since 1976. Federal prosecutors have twice admitted before the

Courts of Appeal that they don’t know who fired the fatal shots. The

government also has admitted that it isn’t known what role Leonard Peltier

"may have played" in the incident.

Since his politically motivated prosecution and conviction, proof of

fabricated and suppressed evidence, as well as coerced testimony, has been

uncovered. The Courts of Appeal have repeatedly acknowledged investigative

and prosecutorial misconduct in this case, but have failed to take

corrective action. A model prisoner, Leonard continues to maintain his

innocence and has consequently been denied fair consideration for parole.

Join with numerous internationally recognized human rights organizations,

civil rights leaders, celebrities and other luminaries who have called for

the immediate release of Leonard Peltier. Visit
