Mark Your Calendars…on the 6th of every month we are having an ACTION Day for Native American Federal Political Prisoner Leonard Peltier (we may also include other days depending on circumstances and needs)!
We present this on Social Networks as a way to inform Supporters that we are asking YOU to become involved. This ACTION event includes a Twitter Storm, Phone Zap, E-mailing, and Letter Writing; chose to do one or all, or whatever YOU can do. Certainly we encourage each of Leonard’s Supporters to take some ACTION as often as they can. But we also realize that life can be busy and besides Leonard’s need for FREEDOM, America has many other pressing needs that many individuals/organizations/groups/causes/ find themselves involved in. Ultimately it is doing what YOU can whenever YOU can. Our prime target in our ACTION focus is President Barack Obama as he is the ONLY one who can grant Executive Clemency to Federal Prisoners so designated by the United States Constitution. There are many ways to contact the White House. We KNOW that President Obama and his staff do read his e-mails and letters. We KNOW that phone calls and tweets are counted and categorized (i.e. >> so many phone calls/tweets received for Leonard, so many phone calls/tweets received for taxes, climate change, etc). Supporters sometime feel annoyed that they have not gotten feedback from President Obama; with the astronomical amount of communications the White House receives no doubt it is hard to reply to everyone. All we can say is that we KNOW that the White House and President Obama are aware of Leonard Peltier! YOU do NOT have to be a fan of our current President or be a fan of Politics in this Country, but this is what we have to work with. PLEASE acknowledge that Leonard’s FREEDOM depends on President Obama until January 2017. His last FULL day in Office is January 19, 2017; Inauguration Day is January 20th. Leonard has stated numerous times in his public statements that President Obama may be his last chance for FREEDOM…. and he may indeed be right!

On May 1st, 2015 the New website for Leonard Peltier made it’s debut: International Leonard Peltier Defense Committee > http://www.whoisleonardpeltier.info/ This is a project of the Indigenous Rights Center, LLC (a long-standing dream of Leonard‘s was to have a Human Rights/Indigenous Rights Organization which works for the People. Thanks to the dedication and skills of family/friends/long-time supporters this dream is now becoming a reality)! > http://indigenousrightscenter.org/
Leonard has many Supporters from across the globe who have been working on his behalf for close to 4 decades. For those of YOU who don’t know us, we are long-time Action-oriented Supporters of Leonard’s. We do not currently speak for him (unless he asks us directly to do so). We’ve individually pledged our Support to Leonard personally to fight for his FREEDOM as best we can! We Thank YOU so much for all that YOU are doing for Leonard. We work in Good Faith and Solidarity with Others who are also of Good Faith and Solidarity.
In and with the Spirit of Crazy Horse. Bonnie Walker, Joan Rodriguez* (R.I. P.)
*On February 22, 2015 Joanie moved on to Spirit World unexpectedly. Leonard‘s FREEDOM was on her “Bucket List” and was a priority for her. She worked tirelessly for the past 13 years or so towards helping to make his FREEDOM a reality! I’ve chosen to keep Joanie’s name on this event as this (and others) were created by the both of us; we’ve worked together for the past few years for Leonard and other Social Network Activism projects. I truly believe that wherever my dear friend now abides in the Heavens she continues to do all she can for Leonard and Others. ♥ Thank You Joanie, I miss you and am forever grateful for the time we walked our Earthly paths together. ♥
