Free Leonard Peltier
Leonard Peltier is a Lakhota warrior who was falsely charged and imprisoned for the killing of two FBI agents on the Pine Ridge Reservation in 1975.  Many have charged that the FBI was complicit  in the reign of terror that followed the American Indian Movement’s occupation of Wounded Knee in 1973 that resulted in the murders of some 60 traditional Lakhota and AIM activists during that time.  Those murders, perpetrated by the Goon Squads led former tribal chairman Dickie Wilson and paid for with Federal money that should have been used to aid the desperately poor traditional Lakhota on Pine Ridge, have never been investigated.  Last year, NPR reported that the case has been re-opened http://www.npr.org/2012/08/18/159058219/near-wounded-knee-years-of-alleged-injustice which may lead to the indictment and prosecution of those responsible for the violence against AIM and its traditionalist supporters.
Leonard Peltier has been named as a political prisoner by Amnesty International.  You can read the entire compelling story in Peter Matthiesen’s compelling “In the Spirit of Crazy Horse,” reviewed by Harvard law professor and noted civil libertarian Alan Dershowitz, here: http://www.nytimes.com/books/97/11/23/home/matthiessen-crazyhorse.html.  There is also a documentary about these events, “Incident at Oglala,” directed by Michael Apted and produced and narrated by Robert Redford.  You can watch the entire movie for free on YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4izazh10qbs.
It is long past time to free Leonard Peltier and lock up the real criminals.
Hoka Hey!
