Freedom is NOT Free!

If you've been paying attention, you know that 2009 was an eventful year for Leonard Peltier and his supporters. The parole denial was disappointing, but we won a number of important battles and demonstrated that support for Leonard Peltier is alive and well.

"Don't mourn. Organize!"

In that spirit, 2010 will be a busy year. We're confident that 2010 will bring many blessings.

There's a whole crew of attorneys on board working on issues related to Leonard's case. Peter Matthiessen's recent article in the New York Book Review generated so much interest that it has now gone into syndication. Community organizing is kicking into high gear with the Zoom In campaign and other campaigns are planned for the coming year. Working with the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians, Leonard's Committee recently succeeded in directly reaching Attorney General Eric Holder to formally request Leonard's transfer from maximum security. Lobbying efforts targeting the Department of Justice, White House, and Members of Congress will be undertaken in the coming year. Outreach to Indian Nations (begun prior to the White House Tribal Summit) will continue.

This and much more will only happen with your help.
