Free Leonard Peltier

Wrongfully convicted in connection with the shooting deaths of two agents of the FBI in 1977, Peltier maintains his innocence. Imprisoned for 35 years—currently at the federal prison in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, Leonard Peltier has been designated a political prisoner by Amnesty International. Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu, 55 Members of Congress and others—including a judge who sat as a member of the court in two of Peltier’s appeals—have all called for his immediate release. Widely recognized for his humanitarian works and a six-time Nobel Prize nominee, Peltier also is an accomplished author and painter.
