NBC: Leonard Peltier, imprisoned Native American activist, has new message for Biden in clemency push

Leonard Peltier, imprisoned Native American activist, has new message for Biden in clemency push
Peltier, 77, has been held since 1977 for the deaths of two FBI agents. He maintains his innocence, and supporters say he deserves to be released on compassionate grounds.

Leonard Peltier, the Native American activist who has been imprisoned for nearly half a century for the murders of two FBI agents he has always maintained he didn't commit, is hopeful he'll have a chance to clear his name before he dies.

Peltier, 77, wants President Joe Biden to review his case and grant him clemency so he won't die in prison.

He's not looking for a presidential pardon, because it would be granted for a crime he insists he is innocent of.

Instead, he wants a new trial.

Even DNC Members Are Urging Biden To Let Leonard Peltier Go Home
“It is a matter of justice and compassion,” the DNC’s Native American Caucus leaders said of granting clemency to the ailing Indigenous rights activist.

President Joe Biden is now facing pressure from within the Democratic National Committee to grant clemency to Leonard Peltier, the 77-year-old Indigenous rights activist who has served 46 years in prison despite no evidence that he committed a crime.

Chair Grijalva speaks with imprisoned indigenous activist Leonard Peltier, sends updated clemency request to President Biden

 


 









Chair Grijalva speaks with imprisoned indigenous activist Leonard Peltier, sends updated clemency request to President Biden

From US Natural Resources Committee, Char-Koosta News Mar 4, 2022
“Like far too many of his Indigenous brothers and sisters, Mr. Peltier’s history has ben fabricated, rewritten, and erased at the hands of the U.S. government,” Chair Grijalva said. “In this case, it is not too late to take a stand against that injustice and move towards making it right. The Biden administration must take this opportunity to correct the record and free Leonard Peltier.”

Justice for Leonard Peltier
WORDS BY RUTH H. HOPKINS, 2.22.2022
“Leonard did not receive a fair trial,” she said. “The fact that Leonard is still behind bars speaks volumes to many of us who have or had incarcerated loved ones. Native Americans have not yet been included in any promise of federal justice reform, this needs to change.” Ruth and others held a Rise Up for Peltier Rally in Fargo, North Dakota, on February 7, 2022, in solidarity with other rallies held regionally, nationally, and globally demanding Leonard Peltier’s release.  Jean Roach participated in another rally held that same day in Rapid City, South Dakota.

News > Kite Line > March 4, 2022: Freedom for Leonard Peltier
We return to the topic of long-term prisoner Leonard Peltier. Leonard Peltier is an American Indian organizer who has been imprisoned for 46 years.  Now 77, he is suffering from a variety of illnesses exacerbated by his long imprisonment, including diabetes, partial blindness, and an aortic aneurysm.  He recently was infected with COVID.  A member of the American Indian Movement, Peltier participated in the communal defense of the Pine Ridge reservation in 1975, which had been overrun with police and FBI agents, along with government-backed paramilitaries.  He participated in a shootout that led to the deaths of two FBI agents and another Native militant, but denies firing on the feds.  He was found in Canada in 1976 and extradited based on false testimony.  Today, he is the focus of a renewed effort to secure his release, with nine members of congress signing onto a letter requesting clemency.  The question of whether Peltier will die in prison currently hangs in the balance so we are sharing this overview piece from the International Leonard Peltier Defense Committee.

It’s time to free Leonard Peltier, America’s longest serving political Prisoner
KCRW, Scheer Intelligence, by Robert Scheer Dec. 03, 2021
Now, as Peltier struggles with his health at the age of 77, there is mounting pressure for President Biden to offer the Native American activist the presidential pardon so many of his predecessors--including Bill Clinton--have failed to give him. This week Sen. Patrick Leahy became the most senior U.S. government official to call for Peltier’s release, joining hundreds of thousands of people, including Pope Francis, Coretta Scott King, and Willie Nelson, who have expressed their support for Peltier.  Even James Reynolds, the U.S. attorney who helped put Peltier in prison in the 1970s, appealed in a letter to Biden to send Peltier home.“I write today from a position rare for a former prosecutor: to beseech you to commute the sentence of a man who I helped put behind bars,” he wrote. “With time, and the benefit of hindsight, I have realized that the prosecution and continued incarceration of Mr. Peltier was and is unjust. We were not able to prove that Mr. Peltier personally committed any offense on the Pine Ridge Reservation.”

Patrick Leahy Appeals To Biden: Send Leonard Peltier Home From Prison
“He is exactly the kind of individual who should be considered for clemency,” said Leahy, who served in the Senate with Biden for 36 years.
Jennifer Bendery, HuffPost, 2/04/2022

“I urge President Biden to commute Leonard Peltier’s prison sentence and release him from federal prison,” Leahy said in a statement. “Peltier, a prominent Native American activist, was imprisoned for crimes he and many other legal experts and advocates maintain he never committed. His trial was so riddled with flaws that even one of the prosecutors trying him has acknowledged that Peltier was wrongfully convicted. Peltier, now 77 years old and ailing with multiple health problems, has served more than 44 years in federal prison.”

International Leonard Peltier Defense Committee: facebook.com/PeltierHQ

Native political prisoner Leonard Peltier, who has been in U.S. federal prison for 46 years despite worldwide calls for his freedom, tested positive for COVID on Friday, Jan. 28.

Carol Gokee and Jean Roach, co-directors of the International Leonard Peltier Defense Committee (ILPDC) are hosting a press conference on Monday, Jan. 31 at 1:00 pm in Tampa to expose the failure of the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) to follow CDC guidelines and COVID guidelines issued by former Attorney General William Barr.

At 77 years old with severe health problems, Leonard Peltier is at great risk. Supporters are demanding his immediate transfer to a hospital to prevent complications that could endanger his life. He has diabetes, an aortic aneurysm, untreated kidney disease and high blood pressure. He also had open heart surgery recently.

Despite the extremely high transmissibility of the Omicron variant, the BOP had not provided booster shots to the prisoners at the Coleman I penitentiary, particularly to the Elders Unit, where Mr. Peltier is imprisoned.  

“We are calling for Leonard to be transferred to a hospital immediately. He waited all day from 8:00 am on Friday when he told the authorities he was sick. He was not tested for hours. It was only at 7:00 pm that he was told the test result was positive,” says Gokee.

Roach says, “It is unconscionable that Leonard Peltier and the other prisoners were not given the booster shot. We demand that he be provided hospitalization to assure a higher chance of survival and recovery. Despite his eligibility for COVID release due to the pandemic, we are alarmed that he could face a death sentence by the BOP’s negligence. Leonard Peltier needs to be hospitalized, not just isolated in the prison.”

There is a growing chorus of voices calling on President Biden to free Mr. Peltier. On January 26, Brian Schatz, (D-Hawaii) Chair of the Senate Indian Affairs Committee, wrote to President Biden, saying in part, “I write to urge you to grant a commutation of Leonard Peltier’s sentence.”

James H. Reynolds, who was the prosecutor at Mr. Peltier’s trial, wrote Biden on July 9, 2021, “I write today from a position rare for a former prosecutor: to beseech you to commute the sentence of a man who I helped put behind bars. … I have realized that the prosecution and continued incarceration of Mr. Peltier was and is unjust.”

A national Change.org petition is calling for Leonard Peltier’s hospitalization and freedom: Chng.it/xChWLc5vT6   
The press conference will be livestreamed on the International Leonard Peltier Defense Committee Facebook page. Please join us at 1pm on January 31st at the link below:

Leaders of the National Caucus of Native American State Legislators wrote to President Joe Biden on Monday urging him to release Leonard Peltier from prison, warning that the 77-year-old Indigenous rights activist is in poor health and deserves ”to live his final years among his people in dignity.”

“Mr. President, please do what is right,” reads the message from New Mexico state Sen. Benny Shendo (D) and North Dakota state Rep. Ruth Buffalo (D), the chair and vice-chair of the caucus, respectively. The caucus represents 89 Native American state legislators from 21 states.
