Vigil For Leonard Peltier's Release

  • Time: Thursday, December 16, 2010 · 7:00am - 5:00pm
  • Location: White House 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue

A Call To Stand For Leonard Peltier

Barack Obama will host the second White House Tribal Nations Conference on December 16, 2010. As part of his campaign, Obama promised to hold yearly meetings with tribes. His first summit took place November 5, 2009. All 565 federally recognized tribes are invited to send one representative to the conference.
We need any and all supporters in D.C. to demonstrate our support of Leonard Peltier on Dec 16th. If it is like last year, we will stand across the street from the Department of the Interior Building from sunrise til 5 pm. It is vital to all our efforts that we have a strong attendance. We know this is short notice... but its the best we've got. We have to be there in large numbers-we can't let them believe we have gone away. Anyone who thinks they can attend, please contact us.
