April 18 Observance

Forwarded On Behalf of the Leonard Peltier Defense Offense Committee

On April 18, 1977 Leonard Peltier was wrongly convicted on coerced testimony & fabricated evidence, and then sentenced to two life terms. Despite the pleas of more than 50 Congressmen, the Dali Lama, Former Attorney General Ramsey Clark and numerous others, he remains wrongfully imprisoned.

We ask you to join us April 18th in a World Day of Prayer for Leonard Peltier. Please pray for his safety in a prison system that allowed a 64 year old man to be beaten by young inmates in January; for his quick release; for his return to his family and for President Barack Obama to free Leonard Peltier.

Pray in the way you know and at the time you choose. Alone or in groups. But please, join us in prayer that this man can return safely home to his family . Please spread the word and ask those in your spiritual community and beyond to join us in this World Day of Prayer for Leonard Peltier.

With a Prayer for Justice and Freedom and in the Spirit of Crazy Horse,

National Spokesman LP DOC
