Subject: Court hearing on December 7, 2006
Location: 500 Pearl Street, 9th Floor, Ceremonial Courtroom, Manhattan.
On December 7, 2006 at 10:00 a.m., Buffalo attorney Michael Kuzma will be
arguing before a three judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for
the Second Circuit for the full release of all documents maintained by the
Buffalo field office of the FBI relating to Leonard Peltier and RESMURS. As
a result of this lawsuit, and a similar case brought against the FBI in
Minnesota under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), we have learned that
the FBI actually possesses 142,579 pages of material pertaining to Leonard
Peltier and RESMURS. Although these documents are over 30 years old, the
Government continues to block release of this information on the basis that
disclosure would, among other things, hamper the "war on transnational
terrorism" and reveal the identities of confidential sources.
Come out on December 7, 2006 to show your solidarity and support in our
struggle to pry loose these secret FBI files and, in the process, come one
step closer to liberating Leonard from federal prison!
