Bolivian President Evo Morales acknowledged that American Indian activist Leonard Peltier as a US held political prisoner framed for the killing of two FBI agent during a US occupation and continued colonization of those who are the descendants of indigenous tribes on the North American continent.
According to a press release
“In 2003, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals found that “Much of the government’s behavior at the Pine Ridge Reservation and in its prosecution of Mr. Peltier is to be condemned. The government withheld evidence. It intimidated witnesses. These facts are not disputed.”
As far as we know, there was no call for the release of Leonard Peltier or any other US held political prisoner at the “Justice or Else” rally. It is shameful that the masses don’t know about those who fought for justice for their people because those who present themselves as leaders of the mainstream have not informed them.
This month marks the 49th anniversary of the founding of the Black Panther Party that corporate media and right wing blogs have worked continuously hard to distort their legacy. s, we’ll try to remember all the panthers still being held unjustly by the US government or forced to live abroad in exile.
Please respectfully write or call the Bureau of Prisons this week urging them to transfer Leonard Peltier to a Medium Security facility due to his serious health conditions. It is the right thing to do. It is the most humane thing to do because Leonard Peltier’s freedom should not come home in a pine box. Once again please be very respectful when you call or write. You attract more flies with honey than you do with vinegar.
