 This year, because February 6th is a Sunday, the
 NWLPSN will be have 
 it's annual Tacoma March & Rally For Justice on
 Saturday February 5th.
 We are also making plans to hold an honoring meal on
 February 6th.
   The February 5th Tacoma March & Rally will also
 mark the 50th rally
 that the NWLPSN has helped organize within our
 region since its 
 founding upon Leonard's request in 1993.  
   We welcome the involvement of all Peltier
 supporters in any way they 
 can find to help. We are in need of donations to
 help pay for the 
 expenses of the march and rally. Please send
 donations to: NWLPSN,
 OLYMPIA OFFICE, P.O. BOX 4398, TUMWATER, WA 98501.  
 
   "Those who put me here and keep me here knowing of
 my innocence 
 can take grim satisfaction in their sure
 reward---which is being who and 
 what they are. That's as terrible a reward as any I
 could imagine.
   I know who and what I am. I am an Indian---an
 Indian who dared to 
 stand  up to defend his people. I am an innocent man
 who never 
 murdered anyone nor wanted to. And, yes, I am a Sun
 Dancer. That, 
 too, is my identity. If I am to suffer as a symbol
 of my people, then I 
 suffer proudly.
   I will never yield."
                                              
 Leonard Peltier
                          From "Prison Writings: My
 Life Is My Sun Dance"
