THE UNITED NATIONS UNIVERSAL PERIDOIC REVIEW

March 26, 2010
San Francisco, California
ILLEGAL IMPRISONMENT OF LEONARD PELTIER
Lenny Foster (Dine’)
Navajo Nation Corrections Project
Excerpt:
"I recommend the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Peoples seek compliance through the Declaration of Human Rights of Indigenous Peoples and demand a congressional investigation into the human rights violations of Leonard Peltier. Invitations will be made to the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Situation of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms of Indigenous Peoples to visit Leonard Peltier at the United State Penitentiary in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania. I request his petition for Executive Clemency is approved by the United States Justice Department and President Barack Obama."

That's not a good practice. Fight for it for freedom.
