Leonard Peltier, a champion for the rights of Native and all oppressed people, has been in prison for over 43 years, persecuted by the U.S. government for a crime he did not commit. Since his arrest in 1976, an international movement has demanded his freedom while Peltier continues to speak out for justice from behind prison walls. The Party for Socialism and Liberation is honored by his participation in our 2020 presidential ticket as Gloria La Riva’s running mate. Peltier is currently being held in Coleman Prison in Florida in the Elder Unit, which is on complete lockdown with prisoners confined to their cells 24/7 and allowed out for only a half hour to shower three times a week. Join the PSL to write letters to the prison warden. Urge him to consider the health and age of the prisoners in the Elder Unit, and allow them access to the Day room and exercise, and end their lockdown.
