Health Alert: Peltier Needs Medical Assistance

Forwarded on behalf of the Leonard Peltier Defense Offense Committee

Kari Ann Cowan, Peltier's niece, reported tonight (Friday) from the prison at Lewisburg that Leonard may have suffered a heart attack (a couple of days ago).

"He had hard time breathing. He was in his cell and had an ache in his chest. He was kinda scared he was having a heart attack. He raised his hands, breathed slowly and finally felt better."

We need to call the prison and ask them to get Leonard to the hospital in Rochester (the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN) as soon as possible for a check up.

Be polite and courteous and express your concern for his health and welfare. We gotta step up.

Make reference to Leonard Peltier #89637-132.

Call Warden Scott Bledsoe at (570) 523-1251.

Fax numbers: (570) 522-7745 and (570) 522-7519
