International Director of the LPDC, David Hill (Oklahoma Choctaw), and invited guests, will update us on the latest efforts of the Leonard Peltier Defense Committee. Mr. Hill has worked tirelessly for the release of Leonard Peltier for over 30 years by organizing horse rides, demonstrations and speaking publicly. Now listen in as he talks about what the Committee is doing now to gain Peltier's freedom.
Native American activist Leonard Peltier has spent nearly 40 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. Prosecutors and federal agents manufactured evidence against him; 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 has faced a staggering number of Constitutional violations has yet to receive equal justice.
Leonard Peltier Statement of 11/11/13: "Forgive me if this seems a bit lengthy but the future of my involvement is very important to me and when you get to be 69 years old, one day could be a lifetime. In saying this I want you to understand why we are gearing up to do everything as soon as possible. I don’t know what else I can say to get you to better understand this situation at the moment but again I want to say I appreciate all your efforts, all the things you have done, and for the indigenous people of the United States I want to echo the words that they say over and over again in their own way. WE ARE STILL HERE. This is our home, this is our past, this is our present, and this is our future." http://www.whoisleonardpeltier.info/
