      Dear Friends and Supporters,

      First, Leonard and I want to thank you for the outpouring of support.
      your help, we're hopeful that Leonard will receive proper medical
      care from
      prison authorities.

      Within the last several days, Leonard has finally been able to see a
      Together, they discussed Leonard's care and reviewed his medications
      such. However, the issue of the diabetes testing kit remains.

      Citing security reasons, U.S. Penitentiary-Lewisburg will not allow
      to have a diabetes testing kit in his cell. But Leonard is not
      asking that
      he be allowed to have a kit in his cell. Often, when he goes to the
      infirmary, there is no one there to help him and he has to keep
      returning to
      the infirmary until he's able to speak with medical personnel. The
      infirmary has a "general" kit, too. It's used by other prisoners and
      due to
      the embedded memory in the monitor, Leonard could be getting false
      We're asking that Leonard be allowed to have his own kit at the
      pharmacy for
      accurate readings, as well as easy and regular access. In this way,
      be able to test himself three or four times a day and hopefully
      achieve a
      balanced blood glucose level.

      Please continue to urge prison authorities to provide Leonard with a
      diabetes test kit so that he can control his diabetes. We also want
      to see
      to it that Leonard receives diabetic shoes that will help him with his
      diabetes-related foot problems. If the prison cannot provide such
      the family will work with an approved medical supply company to see
      to it
      that Leonard gets what he needs.

      Amnesty International considers Leonard Peltier a "political
      prisoner" who
      should be "immediately and unconditionally released." Leonard
      Peltier, now a
      great-grandfather, is a citizen of the Anishinabe and Dakota/Lakota
      and a tireless advocate for Indigenous Rights. A participant in the
      American Indian Movement, he went to assist the Oglala Lakota people
      on the
      Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in the mid-1970s where, on June 26,
      1975, a
      tragic shoot out occurred. He was wrongfully convicted in the deaths
      of two
      agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and has been illegally
      incarcerated since 1976. Federal prosecutors have twice admitted
      before the
      Courts of Appeal that they don't know who fired the fatal shots. The
      government also has admitted that it isn't known what role Leonard
      "may have played" in the incident.
      Since his politically motivated prosecution and conviction, proof of
      fabricated and suppressed evidence, as well as coerced testimony, has
      uncovered. The Courts of Appeal have repeatedly acknowledged
      and prosecutorial misconduct in this case, but have failed to take
      corrective action. A model prisoner, Leonard continues to maintain his
      innocence and has consequently been denied fair consideration for
      Join with numerous internationally recognized human rights
      civil rights leaders, celebrities and other luminaries who have
      called for
      the immediate release of Leonard Peltier. Visit
