Without notice to his family and attorney, Native American political prisoner Leonard Peltier was moved to Terre Haute, Indiana, Thursday June 30th, 2005. He has been placed in solitary confinement indefinitely. Peltier has been in prison for twenty nine years, he is sixty years old, and his health is frail. His Defense Committee, family, and friends are extremely concerned about his well being, his health, and safety and the status of the privileges (religious rights, painting privileges, visits, phone calls, etc.) he earned after decades of good behavior in Leavenworth and other prisons.

LPDC, Executive Director, Russ Redner confirms this and adds that Leonard Peltier is still a targeted individual for this U.S. government. “Leonard Peltier is the only prisoner in U.S. history that the FBI personally took time and money to campaign against and purposely derailed the judicial process through a series of unauthorized and, by now, known tactics: withholding documents, intimidating witnesses, inciting tactics among other actions not covered under any job duties legally sanctioned—this is strictly black bag/SOG operations like in the illegal war on other indigenous peoples in the middle east?, he emphasizes. With respect to the concern over Peltier’s well being he adds: “Leonard Peltier is not just an ordinary prisoner when he rates this kind of treatment. This is the domestic version of rendition as a means to break and derail political dissent. The US Prison system is the system that reservations were also a pattern for and it has been used to kill those prisoners of conscience throughout time. It is also responsible for perpetrating crimes of all manners and descriptions. The US Prison system is the most inhumane system using the latest technology to mask its brutal treatment of prisoners—maximum security and super-max prisons are merely death camps in disguise so the American People will not think of themselves as cruel and inhumane. We pray that our brother is strong enough to tolerate this evil and that The Creator protects him now more than ever.?

Re: Leonard Peltier Moved to Terre Haute Indiana USP

It is unfortunate that Leonard Peltier cannot get justice on his side even when he is 60 and in frail health. There is something very unchristain and definitely undemocratic about the treatment handed out to him by the US justice system

"May the Great Spirit ride into the souls that have the reptilian DNA."

Please, let us stop projecting what is bad in humans into the animal world. Reptiles are wonderful creatures. FBI agents and other government mercenaries are a whole different story.

Free Leonard Peltier!
 

Re: Leonard Peltier Moved to Terre Haute Indiana USP

What possible security threat would Leonard pose in his current condition that warrants him being moved to solitary confinement? Besides the fact that he is innocent. According to some interpretations, Leonard Peltier has been in prison longer than many prisoners would have been who are guilty of the crimes Leonard has been convicted of. This is not justice. This is a shame.

Free Leonard Peltier!
 

Re: Leonard Peltier Moved to Terre Haute Indiana USP

the financiers of expanisonism have always sloughed off the blame onto others. same financiers resonsible for slavery, rape of the land, war, decimation of indigenous, and muchmuch more. They used the people, whipped the people up, over issues they never intended to pay off on. Attorneys indeed. Britains representatives! They brought the bush scum in to clear out the blax when they would not pay them off, and this piece of feces in the whitehouse now is just his deddy squared. Leonard and those like him are liabilities in the extreme to these scum like bush and xtian fanatic followers. Costly. Gettin it yet???
