FEBRUARY 6, 2002 MARKS 26 YEARS OF SHAME –RENEW YOUR SUPPORT FOR LEONARD PELTIER!

Nearly 26 years ago, on February 6, 1976, Leonard Peltier was arrested. From that day forward Leonard Peltier has lived his life from the confines
of a prison cell.

For some, the 26 year old struggle to free Peltier has become hopeless and mundane, with the same efforts, the same obstacles, and the same defeats year after year.

For Leonard Peltier, time passes even slower, with the same prison walls and the same prison clothes, and the same routines never changing.

For Leonard Peltier, February 6 approaches like a
nightmare that seems inevitably to repeat itself, bringing the realization of yet another year spent in prison, away from family, friends and an ever-changing world.

However, the year 2002 will be far different than any other. For the first time the FBI and other officials will be directly challenged for lying and
deceiving those who had the authority and duty to correct this grave injustice long ago.

Also, the year 2002 will very likely involve the
exposure of evidence suppressed for decades, shedding new light upon Leonard Peltier’s case and the struggle from which his case was born.

Let’s mark February 6, 2002 by renewing our commitments and active support and by preparing for the months to follow. Without you, hope for justice collapses.

With you, the year is bound to bear many promising developments, developments that could very well lead to freedom.

Until Freedom Is Won!
