I received this e-mail this morning as I have long been a defender of Leonard Peltier. 




This man has endured much at the hands of our government. 

It is ironic that this comes just after most of us had huge celebrations of Independence yesterday. 

Freedom isn’t Free as we were reminded by our gusdi, Kicking Bear
….and for some, it is impossible.

Life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness… justice for all.
These are the lofty ideals celebrated each year on the 4th of
July. The government often confuses the saying with the doing,
however… like in the case of Leonard Peltier.

On June 27, Leonard Peltier was removed from the general population
at USP-Lewisburg and placed in solitary confinement. We know this
was not done for Leonard’s protection. We also are certain that
Leonard has done nothing wrong. He should immediately be returned
to the prison’s general population.

Our concern is two-fold. First and foremost, Leonard must not
be railroaded by prison authorities as has happened in the past.
Second, Leonard’s age and health status are a concern. Leonard
suffers from diabetes and other health conditions. He must have
the means by which to monitor his blood sugar. He must receive
the proper diet. Leonard otherwise must continue to receive his
prescribed medications. He must immediately be returned to the
prison’s general population.

Time to set him free… Because it is the RIGHT thing to do.
