Supporters to Honor Leonard Peltier as He Enters 37th Year in Prison As he begins his 37th year of wrongful imprisonment, Native American leader and activist Leonard Peltier will be honored on Tuesday, June 26th with singing and drumming on Ohlone land at Theodore Lenzen Park in San Jose. Community members will discuss what can be done to secure Peltier's release from prison.

Drumming and singing will be provided by Wicapiluta (Luta) Candelaria, with other Black Berets, and will be followed by updates about Peltier, calls to action, a potluck, and then a screening of "Warrior: The Life of Leonard Peltier," a film by Suzie Baer.

The event is sponsored by the Leonard Peltier Defense Offense Committee (LPDOC) chapter of Silicon Valley and endorsed by the Black Berets por la Justicia (San Jose, CA).
