This week’s article has more information on Leonard Peltier. While he is more widely known than other American Indians convicted by “kangaroo courts,” which make a mockery of our jurisprudence, he is but one of many. And he has paid a price for remaining in the spotlight all these years.
Leonard Peltier’s Sacrifice
Serving life sentences for crimes he was not proven guilty of, Leonard Peltier has sacrificed most of his life. Will this travesty of justice end?
Mr. Peltier’s birthday is September 12th, and there are concerns for his treatment and possible transfer to another facility. Letter writing and phone call campaigns are underway and will be detailed in the forum. We look forward to you joining us and sharing your thoughts and feelings.
Please forward this to friends and family. If we join together in support, we can make a difference for at least one man who has already sacrificed too much. Until next time,
Walk in Balance and Beauty
