All people are encouraged to write on behalf of wrongfully imprisoned AIM (American Indian Movement) activist and political prisoner Leonard Peltier, whose two-consecutive life sentences for crimes he did not commit are a true miscarriage of the (in)justice system. He will be up for parole later this month, around the 25th or so, so any and all letters to the parole board are greatly needed! (download the letter from the website below)
Eugene activists have taken up the call to action, launching a week long makeshift letter-writing campaign, independent of any organization. The tabling effort consists of solely of 3 or 4 concerned students (one recently evicted and now temporarily homeless). The response has been better than anticipated. Perhaps 100 letters may be sent out as a result of today's effort alone.
Leonard has been imprisoned for over 26 years for the murder of two FBI agents on Jumping Bull property in the Pine Ridge Reservation - murders he clearly didn't commit. Over 6,000 secret documents have been kept from the courts, documents which could well prove his innocence. Ballistics evidence proves that he did not fire the weapon that killed the agents; other evidence
can be read about at the website listed below.
More on his case can be found at www.freepeltier.org.
Peace and love!
