Belfast mural in honor of Leonard Peltier

This year, Ireland for Peltier and NAIS - Actiongroup Flanders for Peltier joined forces in a most fitting and lasting tribute to Leonard Peltier, an icon of the oppression suffered by all Native Americans.

We extend our heart warmed than
ks to Danny Devenny and Marty Lyons for their sacrifice made to paint the mural honoring Leonard. The cold, rain nor gael force winds deterred these 2 outstanding men from reaching their objective.

The mural is located on the Falls Road in Belfast, Ireland on the International Wall. Through the years, it has earmarked the struggles both locally and internationally, attracting hundreds of visitors daily. We are honoured Danny Devenny has given Leonard his own wee patch on the wall. Thank you again.
