We are VERY excited about this campaign, and many of us and YOU are feeling something on the wind……. It’s time.
Supporters, Friends, Family, LPDOC Chapters;
In prayer to the 4 Directions, the LPDOC of the U.S. and Canada have joined together in setting off on a new campaign to fight for the Freedom of Leonard Peltier.
It is in the air, you can feel it. It is palpable. The energy is building, we feel it too.
This time something is different.
For almost 40 years now, people from all over the world have worked to set Leonard free. His gratitude is endless, his heart is swollen with pride in the people.
At this time, U.S. President Barack Obama is the sole human being with the power to grant Leonard his freedom. It is up to US to demand Leonard’s freedom.
We believe the President will listen to his people. It is, after all, what he has been elected to do; to listen to the people of the United States, and indeed, the entire world.
We are asking for something special. We want you to HAND-write a letter or postcard, putting your voice, your prayer, your demand in physical evidence form. The Electric petition medium has not proven very successful, for Leonard, and in some ways seems easier to ignore.
Let’s go old school. Pen to Paper.
These letters will be held in repository until 2014, when they will be hand-delivered in a visual and physical representation of our demands,through a very special LPDOC event.
Many MANY boxes of letters will be fed down a line of elders, community leaders, political figures, celebrities and indeed many of you, our tireless supporters, for all the world and media to see.
It is our belief that the sheer quantity of physical evidence representing our demand cannot be ignored.
The people demand justice for Leonard. The people demand his freedom.
Any other outcome would be an outrage and a blemish on the history of our nation.
We call to ALL peoples in ALL 4 Directions to hand-write your demand.
Be a part of the Fight 4 Freedom- put your pen to paper, have a letter writing party!
Let your voices be a part of a choir so loud, the whole world (but especially Barack Obama) can hear.
Send your letters to:
United in the quest for Freedom,
The LPDOC of the U.S. & Canada

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.
