- A MESSAGE FROM
THE LEONARD PELTIER DEFENSE COMMITTEE
Dear Friends and Supporters:
The Leonard Peltier Defense Committee (LPDC) is undergoing a profound
change. This change has affected everything from the Web site to the
phone lines at the LPDC office. Most important of all the changes, an
entirely new set of people have and will be assuming positions on the
Board of Directors and in the LPDC's international headquarters facility
in Lawrence, Kansas.
This team is dedicated to working in unity with all of you who believe
in freedom and justice for Leonard Peltier and all Indigenous people
worldwide. Our goal is to unify a formidable force of people of good
heart whose voices will rise in unity to demand that the United States
government do simply what is right and just. We truly believe that even
the powerful system within the American government that perpetuates this
gross injustice will fall to concerted and unified worldwide pressure.
Just as it happened in South Africa for Nelson Mandela, it will happen
in the U.S. for Leonard Peltier.
During this transition period, we ask you for your continued support in
the struggle to obtain the release of Leonard Peltier from 27 years of
unlawful imprisonment, and we ask for your patience and goodwill. We
will rise again very shortly -- stronger and more determined than ever
to achieve our goal.
Please stay tuned to this site for other announcements, including one
concerning the LPDC Web site. Also, a direct statement from Leonard
Peltier detailing the exact nature of the occurring changes, as well as
why the changes are necessary, will be issued shortly.
In the Spirit of Crazy Horse,
The LPDC Board of Directors
