London: Peltier Picnic, Vigil on June 26



Dear friends:

Once again we will have a picnic and vigil for Leonard Peltier on June 26th in London. Please join us on this day to remember all those who died in the Pine Ridge reign of terror in the 1970s resulting in the continued imprisonment of Leonard Peltier and also to give support to the indigenous people of Turtle Island who are still being persecuted to this day.

WHERE:
We will gather in the area around the Fountain of Life adjacent to the Aldford Street North gate in Hyde Park and have an informal picnic and socialising. Please bring your own food and maybe some to share.
We will then proceed to the American Embassy in Grosvenor Square for a vigil and the handing in of our petition and letter.

WHEN:
June 26th 2008. The picnic will be from 12 noon until just before 2 p.m. and then at the American Embassy from around 2:30 p.m. onwards.

HOW TO GET THERE:

By Underground: The nearest underground station is Marble Arch (Central Line). Take one of exits marked for Hyde Park or Park Lane, walk through Speakers Corner and continue down parallel with Park Lane.
By bus: There are numerous buses that go to this area so just ask for Marble Arch, or Speakers Corner.
By car: The nearest parking is in the underground car park on Park Lane (clearly marked) or Pay & Display all around Grosvenor Square.

Looking forward to seeing you all there.
