I believe that my incarceration, the constitutional violations in my case, and the government misconduct in prosecuting my case are issues far more important than just my life or freedom.

I have been imprisoned for 40 years! I’m 71 years old and still in a maximum security penitentiary. At my age, I’m not sure I have much time left.

When I was indicted the average time served on a life sentence before being given parole was 7 years.

So that means I’ve served nearly 6 life sentences and I should have been released on parole a very long time ago.

Then there’s mandatory release after serving 30 years.

I’m 10 years past that.

Now, I’m told I’ll be kept at USP Coleman I until 2017 when they’ll decide if I can go to a medium security facility — or NOT.

But, I have been classified as a medium security prisoner now for at least 15 years.

BOP regulations say elders shall be kept in a less dangerous facility/environment. But NOT if you’re Leonard Peltier, I guess.

If you have not signed this please consider doing so.
Please Send A Letter to President Obama

There is other information on the link that I gave above. You can sign a petition, send emails, but please ask President Obama for Clemency before his leaving the White House. It seems this is the only way to insure that Leonard Peltier would ever be allowed to go home, if he lives that long.

I recall how important it was for Herman Wallace to be released from prison even if he only knew it for a few hours and lived only a few days. He at least knew he died a free man, he'd be buried off of the prison grounds.

If Peltier dies in prison, the USA will suffer some seriously bad karma. Count on it.

Sorry C2 members, not sure what is going on. But both the sites, have been up for a long time and I've gone in many times. As both USA and non USA residents are having issues I can't say it's due to people being out of a particular Country.

Through tears and anger that we are still pursuing freedom FAR TOO MANY years beyond the legal limit for Leonard whom we've grown to admire and love. Send a postcard to the White House too...

Thank you Dandelion, and thank you Nancy for the site for sending a postcard to the White House, again it's:
Send a postcard to the White House too...
http://www.whoisleonardpeltier.info/home/store/send-a-postcard-to-the-white-house/

At that site, it ALSO gives an address to send Letters and Cards directly to Leonard Peltier in prison.
I have just now done both those things!

Like TomCat, I have been supporting the release of Leonard Peltier since he was arrested! If you read about what happened, before and after he and two others were arrested, you can easily see that there is nothing "normal" about this case. With us sending letters to President Obama, maybe someone will finally release this man.

I as well Terre have been fighting for this man's release since the beginning. Breaks my heart.

Leonard Peltier is now the ONLY Political Prisoner that Amnesty International has listed for the USA. How tragic it is for an American Indian, the FIRST people that lived upon these lands BEFORE it was called the USA.

Very telling isn't it?
