LPSG (Leonard Peltier Support Group) South Bay is showing the film
"Warrior: The Life of Leonard Peltier"
on Tuesday 6th February in San Jose, to honor him on his 31st year of wrongful incarceration.

Warrior is the shocking true story of Leonard Peltier, the American Indian leader locked away for over 30 years, now incarcerated in Lewisburg Prison in Pennsylvania, wrongfully convicted of the alleged murder of two FBI agents during a bloody shootout on the Pine Ridge Reservation on June 26, 1975. Around the world his trial and conviction have been denounced as a sham. Amnesty International, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Desmond Tutu, and more than fifty members of the U.S. Congress have appealed for a new trial for the man who has come to symbolize the continued oppression of America's indigenous peoples.

Warrior takes us back to the violent confrontations at Wounded Knee and Pine Ridge in the seventies, and then to today's Indian reservations where the government's plans for urnanium mining and waste dumping are still being heatedly resisted by Indian activists. The heart of the film, though, is a detailed, painstaking account of Peltier's harrowing odyssey through the American justice system. In color, 85 minutes long.

Please come to this event, bring your family and friends.

Date: Tuesday 6th February
Time: 6:00pm - 10:00pm
The film will start at 7:00pm
Place: Pagesincolor.com Fair Trade Store, (upstairs in the Temekula Gallery)
Address: 888 East Santa Clara Street
(near 19th Street, across street from Roosevelt Park)
San Jose, CA 95116

Come early for light refreshments, socialize and time to look around the only Fair Trade store in San Jose.
We will have an update on Leonard's case.
Stay for questions and answers after the film.
