Leonard Peltier Supporters Come Together: Still Possible to Free Peltier, Says Group Leader
Forwarded by Friends of Peltier on behalf of the Leonard Peltier
Defense Offense Committee
A Call to Action
February 8, 2010
Attention, Supporters! February 6 has come and gone. We've had
a day of rest, too. It's time to get busy once again.
As you know, Leonard's application for parole was denied in August
2009. Leonard has appealed that decision and needs our
support. Leonard has not given up. We can't give up, either.
In fact, let's intensify our efforts on Leonard's behalf.
Actively support the parole of Leonard Peltier as you did last
summer. Insist on a fair reconsideration of Leonard's application
Write a brief and to-the-point letter to the U.S. Parole Commission

You can fax your letter to (301) 492-6694, if you wish.

call President Obama's comment line at (202) 456-1111 or (202)
456-1112. Tell the President to support the parole of Leonard
There was a crippling snow storm in the Washington metropolitan
area this past weekend. Service at the White House may be disrupted
as a result. Be patient and keep calling until you get through to
the comment line. Generally, the White House comment line is open
Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., EST.
Remember also that if the lines are busy, you can call the
switchboard at (202) 456-1414. Ask for the comment line. You may be
placed on hold until the next available staffer can take your call.
We thank you in advance for your attention to this urgent matter
--as well as your time, effort, and commitment.
