Native american activist Leonard Peltier has been imprisoned for 37 years now for a crime he didn’t commit. There is proof that the FBI coerced testimony from witnesses, filed false affidavits to commit an illegal extradition, and even went as far as to introduce falsified ballistics evidence in the trial. The FBI continues, to this day, to claim that Leonard had a fair trial and his imprisonment is justified. If you would like to learn more please visit http://www.whoisleonardpeltier.info
One of the main proponents asserting that Peltier is guilty is a former FBI agent named Ed Woods (http://www.noparolepeltier.com) This may seem like it doesn’t effect you but think about it this way: Leonard was imprisoned for being a Native American who didn’t like the way the American government was treating his fellow natives, and decided to speak out against it. The only difference between him and you is that he was speaking out over 30 years ago on the same issues that effect us today.
Freeing Leonard would not only be a massive blow to the FBI – as it would expose the lies they told to get Leonard into prison and keep him there – but it would also possibly be a starting point for raising awareness about all of the political prisoners who have been doing time for talking about the one thing the American government can’t handle… the truth.
