On behalf of the Leonard Peltier Defense Offense Committee, 27 July 2011:
The Attorney General of the United States manages the Department of Justice, of which the Bureau of Prisons is a part. For the next two days, we ask supporters to contact Attorney General Eric Holder. Whether for a week, a month, a year, or 10 years… Solitary
Confinement is Torture! Solitary is cruel and unusual and was recognized as such by the U.S. Supreme Court a century ago.
Call, Write & Email the Dept of Justice Attorney General and express your concern about the impact of solitary on the health of Leonard Peltier, a 66-year-old man in poor health. Demand that Leonard Peltier be immediately released from solitary and returned to the general population at USP-Lewisburg.
Correspondence to the Department, including the Attorney General,
may be sent to:
U.S. Department of Justice
950 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20530-0001
Office of the Attorney General Public Comment Line – 202-353-1555
E-mails to the Department of Justice, including the Attorney General,
may be sent to AskDOJ@usdoj.gov. IMPORTANT: Address your e-mail to
Attorney General Eric Holder so that your e-mail will be forwarded
to his office.
Time to set him free… Because it is the RIGHT thing to do.
Friends of Peltier

Those of us on the outside, must do whatever we can to help those on the inside – I try & find postcards of: artwork, people, & animals, to send to prisoners. It is much easier to write a postcard, than to write a letter. I do not send postcards of places, as that could put pressure on prisoners, who are not able to go anywhere!!!!!!!!!!
