Urgent Alert Leonard Peltier


letters for leonard header

From International Leonard Peltier Defense Committee
Greetings Friends, Family and Supporters;
The National Office and Board of Directors, are asking that you e-mail the following Bureau of Prison officials requesting that they re-assign the cellmate of Mr. Leonard Peltier 89637-132 to his own cell for the following reasons:
It is with incredible concern that I learned that Leonard Peltier 89637-132 was assigned a cellmate. This is highly unusual as Leonard has had a single cell for a considerable amount of time, making this sudden assignment suspect. There has been an unfortunate history with Leonard being negatively impacted by the actions of cellmates. The time he had a cellmate in USP Lewisburg, he received disciplinary action including a transfer to USP Coleman, for contraband Leonard had nothing to do with and he is concerned this could happen again.
This pattern of the BOP against Mr. Peltier is similar to the time that the BOP used another Native prisoner, Standing Deer in a plot to assassinate Mr. Peltier.
I am against these actions on the part of the BOP which are a way to undermine Mr. Peltier's transfer request to be moved to FCI Oxford WI.
I am asking that you reassign Mr. Peltier's cellmate to another location, to ensure Leonard Peltier's safety.

Greetings, from a friend of the Red Man down here in Cape Town, South Africa.
It pains me to see the continued suffering of The Creator's Red children, especially that of the chosen 'scapegoats'. But He Who orders all things above is not oblivious to the injustices meted out those who have stood bravely and honourably in the way of the White Man's "Manifest Destiny". As the great voices such as Black Elk (Hehaka Sapa), and others remind us, Nature, in all her power and ubiquity, will have the final say-- history is not yet ended...
Mitakuye, oyasin! (We are all related!)
