URGENT ALERT! Leonard Peltier’s Safety Is In Jeopardy!

URGENT ALERT! Leonard Peltier’s Safety Is In Jeopardy!
Dear LP Supporters,
I am so OUTRAGED! My brother Leonard was severely beaten upon his arrival at
the Canaan Federal Penitentiary. When he went into population after his
transfer, some inmates assaulted him. The severity of his injuries is that
he suffered numerous blows to his head and body, receiving a large bump on
his head, possibly a concussion, and numerous bruises. Also, one of his
fingers is swollen and discolored and he has pain in his chest and ribcage.
There was blood everywhere from his injuries.
We feel that prison authorities at the prompting of the FBI orchestrated
this attack and thus, we are greatly concerned about his safety. It may be
that the attackers, whom Leonard did not even know, were offered reduced
sentences for carrying out this heinous assault. Since Leonard is up for
parole soon, this could be a conspiracy to discredit a model prisoner.
He was placed in solitary confinement and only given one meal, this is
generally done when you won’t name your attackers; incidentally being only
given one meal seriously jeopardizes his health because of his diabetes.
Prison officials refuse to release any info to the family, but they need to
hear from his supporters to protect his safety, as does President Obama. His
attorneys are trying to get calls into him now.
This attack on LP comes on the heels of the FBI’s recent letter, prompting
this attack by FBI supporters as an attempt to discredit LP as a model
prisoner. Anyone who has been in the prison system knows well that if you
refuse to name your attackers or file charges against them, then you lose
your status as a victim and/or given points against your possible parole and
labeled as a perpetrator.
It is not uncommon, in fact is quite common for the government to use Indian
against Indian and they still operate under the old adage “it takes an
Indian to catch an Indian”. In 1978, they made an attempt to assassinate him
through another Indian man who was also at Marion prison with LP. But
Standing Deer chose to reveal the plot to him instead of taking his life in
exchange FOR A CHANCE AT FREEDOM. When Standing Deer was released in 2001,
he joined the former Leonard Peltier Defense Committee as a board member. He
also began to speak on Leonard’s behalf until his murder six years ago
today. Prior to his murder, Standing Deer confided with close friends and
associates that the same man who visited him in Marion to assassinate
Peltier, had came to Houston, TX and told him that he had better stay away
from Peltier and anything to do with him.
We are aware that currently, the FBI is actively seeking support for his
continued imprisonment of Leonard Peltier and also also seeking support from
Native People. So please be aware, and keep Leonard in your prayers. The FBI
is apparently afraid of the impact we are having. If they will set him up to
blemish his record just before a parole hearing, what will they do when it
looks like his freedom will become a reality? We need to make sure that
nothing happens to him again!
Please write the President, send it priority or registered mail. Email to
Change.gov or email President Obama. Call your congressional representatives
and write letters, not email, to them. Do what you can to get the word out
to insure that LP is receiving adequate medical attention for his injuries..
I am asking you, supporters of Leonard and advocates of justice at this time
to help. I don’t know what else to do. Please Help!
Thank you.
Betty Ann Peltier-Solano
Executive Coordinator
Leonard Peltier Defense Offense Committee Also call and request Leonard be
treated with dignity and respect.
