* Thank You *
Thank you to all supporters for taking action of Mr. Peltier’s
behalf. Our work isn’t done. As you know, Mr. Peltier was assaulted
at USP-Canaan last week. Your continuing involvement is greatly
appreciated and urgently needed.
* Update *
Peltier attorney Micheal Kuzma described Leonard’s injuries during
an interview yesterday on American Indian Airwaves. According to
a letter received from Peltier (thus far, neither the attorneys
or Leonard’s family members have been able to speak directly with
Leonard), the attack occurred on January 13. Leonard believes he
may have a concussion and he’s suffering from headaches that are
a direct result of the beating. His middle finger on his left
hand may be broken. He has a large bump near his right wrist. He
is experiencing pain in the area of his right rib cage and chest
(which is bruised). Listen to the interview (last 20 minutes of
the program):
