To all LPDOC Chapters.We have been contacted by several individuals asking for direction. What is needed is to keep up the pressure on the White House comment line and with your individual Senators and Congressman.
You should know that there is a lot of work being done by the committee and though it is not yet public, it will soon be. One of our ongoing efforts has been with Amnesty International. We will be making an announcement soon about a new international letter-writing campaign we have coordinated with AI London. AI members and chapters world-wide will be encouraged to write letters to President Obama expressing their support and concern for Leonard’s plight and calling for his freedom. This is a very big deal and will have Leonard’s picture posted on fliers and on posters. As soon as things are finalized we will post it to all chapters, issue a press release, and post it on the website.
There are several other efforts in progress that cannot be made public at this time.
We suggest that you continue to do the excellent work you have always done and take every opportunity you can to table, speak publicly at Pow Wow’s, Churches, Colleges, Union meetings and any other public events you can. Bring your Peltier banners to any and all public events you are able to attend including Idle no more.
As always the committee is in need of funding help. As you know we very successfully raised awareness of Leonard’s case at the New York concert but it was not successful financially. Please hold fundraisers in your area and send what you can to the National Office in Wisconsin.
Thank You for all you have done and continue to do for Leonard.
LPDOC Board of Directors.
