Call to Action for Leonard Peltier: A Paper Storm

(from http://www.whoisleonardpeltier.info/newsletter20130901.htm )

As you may know, Mr. Peltier's 69th birthday is on 12 September. This month, give him the best gift of all—hope.

This month, please take a few minutes out of your busy schedule to write a letter (or two!) to U.S. President Obama. Urge the president to free Leonard Peltier. Ask your friends, family members, colleagues, and associates to do the same. Fill the White House mailroom with support for Leonard Peltier.

To begin with - please sign the online Clemency Petition at
http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/peltier_clemency2008/

A handwritten or typed letter (sent by post) can send a powerful message to Obama. Please draft your own letter—in your own words and from the heart. You can also find a sample letter, which you can copy, at:
