To be delivered to: President Barack Obama
For 36 years, Leonard Peltier has been in Federal penitentiary for the responsibility of a shoot-out between the FBI and a small Lakota summer encampment on the Pine Ridge Reservation. Many people have called for his release" Amnesty Intl, Desmond Tutu, Nelson Mandela, Robert Redford and others. Obama has done nothing to further human rights during his administration. It's time for a presidential pardon.
