40 Years of Injustice: ABQ Demands Clemency for Leonard Peltier

On Friday, June 26, more than thirty people stood outside the Peter V. Dominici federal courthouse in Albuquerque, NM to demand executive clemency for Leonard Peltier, an Anishnabe and Lakota leader of the American Indian Movement (AIM) who was wrongly convicted and imprisoned for the murders of two FBI agents 40 years ago at the Jumping Bull Ranch in the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

The “stand-out” action was in solidarity with a Freedom Run, Powwow, and Prayer Walk in Oglala, SD in the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation to commemorate “Leonard Peltier Day,” an official holiday of the Oglala Sioux Tribe. Actions demanding Peltier’s clemency were also held worldwide.
