Ride for Freedom for Leonard Peltier

Ride for Freedom for Leonard Peltier & All prisoners of conscience
Coleman FL to Washington DC
May 30th through June 26th

Leonard Peltier has spent nearly 40 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. Prosecutors and federal agents manufactured evidence against him (including the so-called murder weapon), hid proof of his innocence, presented false testimony obtained through torturous interrogation techniques, ignored court orders and lied to the jury.  People are commonly set free due to a single  constitutional violation, but Peltier - faced with a staggering number of constitutional violations - has yet to receive equal justice.

With this being the last year of the Obama Administration, we need to make a push for Executive Clemency.  We will be cycling through five states and 29 cities.  We plan to show when we can the documentary "Incident at Oglala," have pot luck events with the community and collect signatures for an online petition along the way asking the president for clemency for Peltier.
