Friends Digest Vol. 2, No. 12
I would like to ask you why when we speak you do not listen, and when
you listen, you do not hear, and when you hear us, you do not choose
to understand what we say. This is one time that I ask you to listen
carefully and understand what we have to say. — Frank Fools Crow
* Call to Action: South Dakota Relief *
Conditions from the blizzards last week have created a crisis
on the South Dakota reservations. The Governor has declared a
State of Emergency. The Link Center Foundation has received many
applications for assistance that cannot be filled due to lack
of funds. With propane, wood, and electricity prices continually
rising, many more requests for help are expected to arrive. Please
mark your check "Emergency Utility and Heating Fund" and send your
donation to the Link Center Foundation, P.O. Box 576, Firestone,
CO 80520-0576. Credit card donations may be made securely online
at <>.
* Freedom Campaign *
To keep up to date on actions you can take to help win
Leonard’s freedom, visit our Campaign for Freedom blog at
We encourage you also to sign on to Leonard’s defense committee
listserv at <>.
Until the inauguration on January 20, there are many points of
contact for writing to President-Elect Barach Obama to request
an award of Executive Clemency for Leonard Peltier. For example,
you can reach his transition team at <>. However,
letters are less easily dismissed and due to the onslaught of
electronic requests he now receives, the following locations may
be more effective avenues for capturing the senator’s attention.
We encourage you to draft a brief letter (examples can be found at
<>.  Focus only on the issue of clemency and,
if you include information on Peltier’s case, be certain that your
information is accurate.
We also highly recommend that you fax your correspondence to ensure
speedy delivery.  You may, of course, mail your correspondence. Send
your correspondence to at least one and preferably ALL of the
senator’s offices. Do it today.
