Greetings friends, supporters and Native Peoples.

I would like to begin by saying thank you to those of you who have been 
with me over these nearly 40 yrs, I know some have passed and we all 
miss them. Many of them gave their all to help Native nations.

Those of you still around have seen a lot of changes with the ILPDC. 
Most of the good volunteers had to leave for their own careers or health 
reasons and some just wanted to move on. But before they did go, they 
did some awesome things in building the Committee. Then there were, I 
must admit, a few who came along who had their own agenda. In the end, I 
was the one who lost out as a lot of the work done by others was lost. 
That is the situation with the Committee now.

So when my son Chauncey came to visit me after I hadn't seen him for 
over 16 yrs, I asked him if he would like to help me I needed someone to 
take care of my art work and to hire a good lawyer. We needed to reopen 
the Defense Committee, too. Chauncey said he would love to help me. 
Chauncey has been working hard. Please check out peltierart.com. If you 
can afford to purchase artwork, it would be a big help. The available 
art isn't bad, I'm told :-)

Together with Peter Clark and a new Board, Chauncey is also rebuilding 
the Committee as quickly as he can. But I can't wait for the Committee 
to get back working at full strength as time is running out for me to 
file a clemency petition. So I have to ask you supporters around the 
world for help.

I hear some people claim I don't need lawyers. That's not true. And it's 
important for supporters to understand that some of my attorneys work 
for free, but they have expenses the Committee needs to cover. Not all 
of my attorneys work for free, though, and some are very expensive.

I also hear that supporters think all my celebrity supporters have 
donated to the Committee? They rarely do and when they do their 
donations are far less than you might imagine.

No. The fact is that it's always been you supporters who have kept my 
hope for freedom alive. Now more than ever before I need and want your 

But I don't just need funds. I need you to keep contacting President 
Obama. My life is in your hands. Please do your part to help convince 
the President to let me go home.

Thank you.

Leonard Peltier
