Leonard Peltiers Birthday in San Francisco
Leonard Peltier Turns 71 on Saturday, September 12
SAN FRANCISCO – Leonard Peltier has been behind bars practically 40 years. No one knows who shot the FBI agents on the Jumping Bull Property in 1975. The other activists were declared not-guilty because they were acting in self defense. Someone had to be found guilty and with trumped up charges and manufactured evidence, Leonard Peltier, was the fall guy.
This Saturday is Leonard’s 71 birthday. Aim-West is throwing a birthday party at San Francisco California Institute of Integral Studies, 1453 Mission Street (between 10-11 street), San Francisco. The party to free Leonard begins at 12:30 pm with Teo Kalli traditional danzantes, All Nation Singers, rappers, and much more!
The public is invited. The press is welcome, too. Call the White House and demand executive clemency for Leonard. This 2016 when Obama leaves office may be the last chance for Leonard’s release; 202-456-1212. Please share with allies. www.aim-west.org
