bachrachedit.mp3 (8192 k)
Bachrach outlines the current legal strategies Peltier's legal team is pursuing to win freedom for the Native American Political Prisoner, including Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests for thousands of withheld documents, legal challenges to the "Old Law" Parole system (Peltier is an "Old Law" Prisoner, meaning that old rules that have since been "reformed" still apply to him and about 3,000 other prisoners), challenges to his sentencing, continuing attempts to win Executive Clemency, and other appeals.
