  Feb. 6th, 2003 will mark the 27th year since AIM activist Leonard Peltier?
s arrest. After Leonard?s defense team in appeals disproved the government?s
case against Leonard the government stated that they have no evidence
directly connecting Leonard to the deaths of the FBI agents that he was
convicted for, but still he has not been granted a new trial. The Leonard
Peltier Defense Committee has a new appeal and a lawsuit against the FBI.
This event is in support of the appeal, lawsuit and seeks to send a message
of solidarity for the continuous struggle for justice for Leonard Peltier.

  When you?re conquered, the people you?re conquered by dictate your future.
This is a basic philosophy of mine. If I?m part of a conquered nation, then
I?ve got to yield to authority.  Norman Zigrossi, FBI

  There is a possibility that the jury would have acquitted Leonard Peltier
had the records and data improperly withheld from the defense been available
to him in order to better exploit and reinforce the inconsistencies casting
strong doubts upon the government?s case.   Eighth Circuit Court Opinion,
1986

   I have no doubt whatsoever that the real motivation behind both Wounded
Knee II and the Oglala firefight, and much of the turmoil throughout Indian
Country since the early 1970s, was-and is-the mining companies? desire to
muffle AIM and all traditional Indian people, who sought-and still seek-to
protect the land, water, and air from their thefts and depredations. In this
sad and tragic age we live  in, to come to the defense of Mother Earth is to
be branded a criminal.  Leonard Peltier
