Thirty One Years of Injustice! Freedom NOW for Leonard Peltier !


Feb 6, 2007 marks the 31st anniversary of Leonard Peltier's arrest in
Canada, which later led to his illegal extradition to the United States
using coerced and fraudulent testimony. THIRTY ONE YEARS later, Leonard
Peltier remains in prison, even though the Eight Circuit Court of Appeals
ruled "There is a possibility that the jury would have acquitted Leonard
Peltier had the record and data improperly withheld from the defense been
available to him in order to better exploit and reinforce the
inconsistencies casting strong doubts upon the governments case ." Yet the
Court denied Mr. Peltier a new trial. Leonard Peltier remains in prison.
THIRTY ONE YEARS OF INJUSTICE!
FREEDOM NOW for LEONARD PELTIER!

Leonard Peltier Support Groups (LPSGs) build awareness and unity.

It is Leonard's request that all support groups nationally and
internationally work under the direction of the Leonard Peltier Defense
Committee:

We are providing you with an update on events and projects that are
currently scheduled by supporters and Leonard Peltier support groups in

EVENTS and PROJECTS:

LPDC LEONARD PELTIER CD:
The Leonard Peltier Defense Committee (LPDC) has begun work on a new tribute
to Leonard Peltier, a Leonard Peltier compilation CD.
This CD will be very much like the "Songs for Leonard Peltier" album which
came out several years ago, and included music from renowned artists like
Jim Page, Bruce Cockburn, Joanne Shenandoah, Mitch Walking Elk, and Buffy
Sainte-Marie. The LPDC is looking for songs particularly and specifically
about Leonard or about the general state of Native America but that include
Leonard. They have set a deadline of February 6th, 2007 (the anniversary of
Leonard's arrest) for submission of music. All songs need to be submitted
via MP3 and with lyrics to:

J.D. NASH ( Oglala Commemoration Committee)

email:  <mailto:nash at betarecords.com> nash at betarecords.com

or

Els Herten ( International Peltier Forum)

email:  <mailto:ipforum at skynet.be> ipforum at skynet.be

Now it's time for your WORK to begin! If you don't have a song about Peltier


WRITE ONE!

ALL songs will be heard and the ones selected will be included on this new
musical project. Proceeds from the sale of this CD will benefit the LPDC
directly and help pay for Leonard's continuing legal battle for FREEDOM!
