Free Peltier Now! This idea is currently in 14th Place in the Criminal Justice category at change.org. THANK YOU to all who have voted already. But you must know that the notices about this campaign have been sent to thousands of people and, from the look of things, many people haven't voted as yet. The deadline is midnight tonight (Pacific time).
Why the reluctance? Perhaps because folks have to register, first? You don't want to receive e-mail messages from the organization? No worries. Register, vote, and then use your options in your e-mail program to block e-mails coming from change.org. But vote. Also leave a comment if you'd like. The more the better.
And while you're at it, contact all your friends and family members. Send the link to them and get them to vote, as well.
Web traffic may prevent access to the idea page, but keep trying. Another way in is to go to http://www.change.org/ideas/browse/criminal_justice?page=1. Scroll down to "Pardon or Commutation for Leonard Peltier".
We can do this. Let's end the year on a high note and hit the ground running from day 1 of 2009.
Happy New Year.
Time to set him free... Because it's the RIGHT thing to do.
Friends of Peltier
