Wrongfully-convicted, this Native American has been a political prisoner for over forty years. A very, very sick prisoner who is not getting medical attention & was recently refused a transfer!!

i received this sad news today from Sheryl G. - 😢

"On Monday March 4th, 2019 Leonard Peltier was advised that his request for a transfer had been unceremoniously denied by the United States Bureau of Prisons.

The International Leonard Peltier Defense Committee appreciates and thanks the large number of his supporters who took the time to write, call, email, or fax the BOP in support of Leonard’s request for a transfer.

Those of us who have been supporting Leonard’s freedom for a number of years are disappointed but resolute to continue pushing for his freedom and until that day, to continue to push for his transfer to be closer to his relatives and the Indigenous Nations who support him.

44 years is too damn long for an innocent man to be locked up. How can his co-defendants be innocent on the grounds of self-defense but Leonard remains in prison?"

The injustice in this situation is horrendous! Leonard Peltier should have been freed years ago. His treatment is a black stain on the American government.

I know that wikipedia fakes articles (especially political facts) .... but I read there that his guilt could not be proven 100% !?
Why is he in jail ? Did I miss something ?

Correct in what you read Angela. He is a political prisoner. The Corporate land grabbers were out in Indian Country, doing what they always do, TAKE TAKE TAKE. Division between the Native people occurs when the poverty is great and money comes in to buy people off......even the Indians after years of colonization can be bought off.

However there were many Indians, called Traditional Indians who were not bought off, and so a war of such, created by the Federal Govt. or the "white man" had these GOONS along with the FBI creating all sorts of havoc out there and the murder rate was the highest in the land, even over cities per capita of people.

Is why AIM started, the elderly Indians asked the younger for protection, and so these men and women rose to the occasion. Leonard Peltier was one of them. The Govt. did all it could to silence the voices of AIM, some were killed, some disappeared, John Trudell has his entire family wiped out with a suspicious fire, his pregnant wife, her Mother, and 3 of his young children all died in that fire. And Leonard, he sit in prison to rot of trumped up charges.

And the Corporations, got to steal more........and they continue on doing this now in everyone's backyard across the USA and this theft is leading not only to the destruction of our own Nation but is bringing upon all of us the climate change. Leonard is the canary in the cage.........and the powers to be would rather him die in it than ever let him out.

And as Obama was a Corporate player......he didn't let Leonard Peltier out. Shame on him is why I can't forgive him. We were in hopes that Trump with his hatred of the FBI would let Peltier out but his Corporate rides over his hate on this one I suppose. Leonard represents to the Federal Govt. a LARGE mirror they don't want to look into.
