we petition the obama administration to:

Pardon Leonard Peltier

We, the undersigned citizens of the United States of America, the Citizens of the world, do hereby appeal and in fact DEMAND the unconditional release of Leonard Peltier, an Anishinabe-Lakota Indian currently serving 2 life sentences for the murders of two Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents. 

It is our belief, that Leonard Peltier is, in fact  a U.S. Political Prisoner who should be immediately and unconditionally released through a long awaited presidential pardon. 

Supporters include over 30 million people, human rights organizations such as; Amnesty International, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, National Congress of American Indians, the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Center for Human Rights, Nelson Mandela, Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

Grandma Edna Gordon, 91, asks for Leonard Peltier:


Leonard Peltier

Leonard Peltier…make that 37 years now for Leonard as a political prisoner of the USA.  He was 31 when he was falsely imprisoned in 1976; he’s now 68.  

His personal friend, Seneca Wisdomkeeper Grandma Edna Gordon, now 91, author of 2 books* of ancient wisdom for modern times, asks President Obama:

 

Mr President, COMMIT A HOLY ACT

free our brother Leonard.

Tens of millions will applaud you  when you do.

You will touch the heart of humanity.

 

From each and all of our hearts, Mr. President,

COMMIT THAT HOLY ACT—

 

Free our beloved brother

after 37 years if imprisonment

for the crime of standing up for his People…

for the crime of being INNOCENT.

 

Yes, free Leonard,

a brave and loving man,

as near as we’re likely to get

in these dark times  

to a Human Manifestation

of the sacred White Buffalo,

the very symbol of ALL HUMANITY

 

Free him & you free us All—

including yourself, Mr President.

 

We, your People, pray that you

COMMIT THIS HOLY ACT.
