Leonard Peltier Offense Defense Committee
September 12th marked the 64th birthday of Leonard Peltier, an American Indian male convicted to two life sentences based on fabricated testimony and circumstantial evidence. Many of us see this as the typical injustice perpetuated against American Indians in the legal system that exists through today. Mr. Peltier, a citizen of the Anishinabe and Lakota Nations, is a father, a grandfather, an artist, a writer, and an Indigenous rights activist. He has spent more than thirty-three years in prison for a crime he did not commit. Amnesty International considers him a "political prisoner" who should be "immediately and unconditionally released." It is very uplifting to Mr. Peltier to receive letters and cards. Write to him at: Leonard Peltier - # 89637-132, USP Lewisburg, US Penitentiary, P.O. Box 1000 Lewisburg, PA 17837-1000.
