Help FREE USA Human Rights Activist - Leonard Peltier

USA Prosecutors and F.B.I Federal Agents manufactured evidence to frame an innocent man. They hid proof of his innocence; disobeyed court orders and lied to the judge; presented testimony obtained by threats and strong-arm tactics; and made improper statements to the jury. As a result, Leonard Peltier has spent over 35 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. People are commonly set free due to a single constitutional violation, but Peltier – faced with a staggering number of constitutional violations – has yet to receive equal justice.

Leonard's birthday is on September 12, how about a birthday present to remember - his freedom.

      Leonard Peltier did not receive a fair trial. Evidence was withheld from the defense. Witnesses lied on the stand. He has paid a very dear price for crimes he did not commit.

      President Obama: You have the ability and can now right the wrong that has been done to Leonard Peltier. The 10th Cir Court of Appeals acknowledged facts that there was intimidation of witnesses and other wrongful prosectional wrongful acts against him to keep him in prison without any legal evidence to keep him there. Please grant Leonard Peltier clemency..it is the right thing to do. Thank you.
