ALBUQUERQUE The Leonard Peltier Defense Offense Committee Albuquerque Chapter is calling for a mass call in to the White House this coming Friday, March 30 starting at 9:00 am.
Mass Call In
“It has been some time since a specific Mass Call In for Leonard has been requested. We know many of you call consistently, which is both vital and appreciated by Leonard. Please do all you can to make Friday March 30 a big day for Leonard at the White House comment line,”
stated a post to the Chapter's facebook account.
Peltier, Lakota, has been in prison for the past 35 years. He was convicted of killing two FBI agents who showed up on June 25, 1975 at a private residence in Oglala, South Dakota.
Many American Indians and others around the world view Peltier as a political prisoner. Through the years, Peltier's supporters have included: the Dalai Lama, Mother Teresa and Bishop Desmond Tutu, among other prominent names.
Those willing to make calls are urged to tell the White House you are calling regarding Federal Prisoner Leonard Peltier # 89637-132. Tell them you want Leonard released immediately by Presidential Clemency or any means.
The Chapter urges that callers call as many times as they can. The line may be busy, please be patient and keep trying to get through.
