Friends Digest Vol. 3, No. 1

The human voice is different from other sounds. It can be heard over noises that bury everything else. Even when it's not shouting. Even if it's just a whisper. Even the lowest whisper can be heard over armies... when it's telling the truth.

* Robert Robideau *

As you know, Robert Robideau (Leonard's cousin and co-defendant) passed to the spirit world recently. Red Town Radio will air a tribute to Bob tomorrow, February 28, at 3:00 p.m. Central time. Guests will include Starr Robideau, Russell Means, and David Hill. Anyone wishing to share memories of Robert Robideau is encouraged to call in. See

* Keep Leonard Safe *

Mr. Peltier's move back to Lewisburg is temporary. He may be moved again at any time. We ask supporters to keep up the pressure on the Bureau of Prisons. Demand that Mr. Peltier is moved to a facility commensurate with his current security rating. See

* Wounded Knee II *

Today is the anniversary of the 1973 takeover at Wounded Knee. See

On YouTube, you can watch an interview with Bill Means as he remembers Wounded Knee:

"Never cease in the fight for peace, justice, and equality for all people. Be persistent in all that you do and don't allow anyone to sway you from your conscience." -- Leonard Peltier
