Michael Moore reads his poem for freedom for Leonard Peltier

Peter Coyote introduces Michael Moore. Moore speaks on how the innocent are imprisoned in the US, and the role that the media and public play in convicting people, including Leonard Peltier. Moore speaks on the lies of governments and corporations.
"We were a country founded on genocide," Moore said, "and built on the backs of slaves."
"Americans kill people, that's what we do," said Moore of US wars and drones.
Moore reads his poem, and asks President Obama to bring Leonard Peltier home for Christmas.
"Please let Leonard come home for Christmas, or we shall all bury our hearts at Wounded Knee."

On December 14th, 2012, Harry Belafonte, Jackson Browne, Rubin "Hurricane" Carter, Bruce Cockburn, Common (with Mos Def), Peter Coyote, Danny Glover, Jack Healey, Jennifer Kreisberg, Bill Means, Bill Miller, Pete Seeger, Margo Thunderbird, Tom Poor Bear and Michael Moore gathered at the Beacon Theater, in NYC to sing, speak and dance for Leonard Peltier's freedom.
Who is Leonard Peltier?

The Fight 4 Freedom Continues...


April 2013

Supporters, Friends, Family, LPDOC Chapters;
In prayer to the 4 Directions, the LPDOC of the U.S. and Canada have joined together in setting off on a new campaign to fight for the Freedom of Leonard Peltier.
It is in the air, you can feel it. It is palpable. The energy is building, we feel it too.
This time something is different.
For almost 40 years now, people from all over the world have worked to set Leonard free. His gratitude is endless, his heart is swollen with pride in the people.
At this time, U.S. President Barack Obama is the sole human being with the power to grant Leonard his freedom. It is up to US to demand Leonard’s freedom.
We believe the President will listen to his people. It is, after all, what he has been elected to do; to listen to the people of the United States, and indeed, the entire world.
We are asking for something special. We want you to HAND-write a letter or postcard, putting your voice, your prayer, your demand in physical evidence form. The Electric petition medium has not proven very successful, for Leonard, and in some ways seems easier to ignore.
Let’s go old school. Pen to Paper.
These letters will be held in repository until 2014, when they will be hand-delivered in a visual and physical representation of our demands,through a very special LPDOC event.
Many MANY boxes of letters will be fed down a line of elders, community leaders, political figures, celebrities and indeed many of you, our tireless supporters, for all the world and media to see.
It is our belief that the sheer quantity of physical evidence representing our demand cannot be ignored.
The people demand justice for Leonard. The people demand his freedom.
Any other outcome would be an outrage and a blemish on the history of our nation.
We call to ALL peoples in ALL 4 Directions to hand-write your demand.
Be a part of the Fight 4 Freedom- put your pen to paper, have a letter writing party!
Let your voices be a part of a choir so loud, the whole world (but especially Barack Obama) can hear.
Send your letters to:
Letters 4 Leonard
P.O. Box 4444
Trego, MT


United in the quest for Freedom,
The LPDOC of the U.S. & Canada
