Please Support Executive Clemency for federal prisoner Leonard Peltier!

Messages Sent So Far
Through 6 former Presidents and President Obama's 1st term in Office, Millions of Individuals world-wide (including Judges, Attorneys, Statesmen & Dignitaries) have rallied in support of Clemency for Wrongly Incarcerated Native American Human Rights/Environmental Rights Activist Leonard Peltier. I am a long time supporter of Leonard's. We are asking that you make a pledge in support of Executive Clemency for Leonard Peltier ID #89637-132, in writing, to President Obama with a copy to Representative John Lewis of Georgia who has an on-going Campaign for Executive Clemency.

Attached is the National Congress of American Indians? (NCAI) 2011 Resolution for Clemency which gives very concise information.

I will tell you true, Leonard is a sick man who is getting older and sicker; given his poor medical treatment throughout his lengthily Incarceration?his very life may depend on your right action; his life certainly is in the hands of President Obama!

My sincere Appreciation to You. In Peace.

For President Obama: I am grateful for the commutation of sentence you granted to many prisoners before you leave office. Yet I am deeply saddened not to see the name Leonard Peltier among them. This man who is now a Lakota elder of 71 years has been imprisoned for so long that the great many of us who believe he is innocent despair that he will ever know justice. He has become a symbol not only for the Lakota people but for all Native Americans and allies- a symbol for Native American sovereignty scorned by our nation, and for the great dignity a man can bear for a generation even while he lives generations behind bars. Over the course of 40 years, tomes have been dedicated to the disgrace of justice done by our federal agencies, not only in his trial but in coercing the sole so-called eye-witness to testify and not allowing retraction, to this man and his people. Mister President, I respectfully challenge you to find one word ever written about his guilt that is not laden with doubt beyond reason. Amnesty International has recommended for over a decade- that Mr. Peltier be released. I know because this is how long I have been waiting for his freedom. He has not been treated well for the duration of his sentence and his health is deteriorating so rapidly. You have brought hope to so many, who feel your leaving office is like a light going out. What hope does Leonard Peltier have after the next administration begins? But the hope his freedom would bring to Native Americans in this country would be immeasurable. Please, please sir take the time to read even a few words on this man- perhaps Amnesty International’s page on him- and grant Leonard Peltier clemency. Thank you.

Leonard should be freed. His conviction was very questionable to say the least. He is old and in poor health. President Obama must grant clemency now or he will die in jail for something he did not do.
