*A Personal Note from Leonard Peltier*

I want to thank all of you who have shown your concern and answered
my call
for help. This medical problem has been going on now for some time,
at
least a year or so. As you know, a diabetic coma is usually fatal.
I am
feeling a whole lot better now, so thank you for helping me. You
can stop
contacting the BOP or Lewisburg officials.
Let’s get back to concentrating on other important things. Again,
thank you
very much.

In the Spirit of Crazy Horse.

Doksha,

Leonard Peltier

In keeping with traditional Indigenous values, we believe that all
life is
sacred and must therefore be respected. Leonard and the LP-DOC
respect the
rights of others with regard to their political views and the
expression of
those views. However, Leonard and the LP-DOC urge supporters to
always
behave responsibly. We have not and will never condone hate speech,
destruction of property, and/or threats of violence or acts of
violence of
any kind. Always remember these words to supporters: "You are
representing
me and my bid for freedom. The public looks at you before they see
me or my
issue."-Leonard Peltier. While supporters are free to forward or
repost our
listserv announcements, please (for his protection) do not alter
Leonard’s
personal statements in any way. To verify the accuracy of a
statement you

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
http://www.whoisleonardpeltier.info.

Time to set him free… Because it is the RIGHT thing to do.
