Take action NOW for Leonard Peltier!!

[There's been no word yet from the parole commission; what
routinely takes 3-5 weeks is now in its 12th week.
They may be trying to wait until the fervor dies down to
try to quietly slip a denial past us - we can't let this
happen. -Joe Quickle]

PITTSBURGH CHAPTER ANNOUNCEMENT:
CALL FOR E-MAIL LETTERS TO PAROLE COMMISSION

The Pittsburgh Chapter is collecting e-mail letters to print out
and deliver to the U.S. Parole commission, to convince them that
Leonard Peltier must be freed.

Send e-mail letters for the U.S. Parole Commission to:

r2jsq@vm1.cc.uakron.edu or r2jsq@akronvm.bitnet

If your system has a feature to fill in who you're writing
to, use "U.S. Parole Commission". Format the letter as you
would regular non-electronic mail.

We will be printing and mailing these daily until the parole decision
has been released. Keep the e-mail coming until then.

Feel free to e-mail several different letters and we'll print and
send them all. Send one or many each day if you like.

------------------------------------------------------------
IMPORTANT: Please don't stop faxing messages or sending them
in U.S. mail - we need to get as many letters to the Parole
Commission as possible so they know the magnitude of the
movement for Leonard, and so they are thoroughly convinced
that he must be freed.

EMERGENCY PRESS RELEASE RE: PELTIER'S PAROLE

MARCH 7, 1996

An authoritative source today confirmed previous informal
information to Peltier's Defense Committee that the parole hearing
officer who conducted the hearing on December 11, 1995, HAS made
a positive recommendation to the National Parole Commission for the
parole release of Leonard Peltier without further delay.

This recommendation was based on the failure of the government to
present evidence that Leonard Peltier was the person who killed the
two FBI agents at close range. A final decision from the National
Commission was expected in January. Then the unusual delay in its
decision of over two and a half months has caused GREAT concern
from the Leonard Peltier Defense Committee and his supporters.
It is feared that the Parole Commission may conceal the positive
parole recommendation made by the parole hearing officer and
attempt to deny Leonard Peltier parole.

PLEASE help us to ensure that justice is done on behalf of Leonard
Peltier. You can do this by requesting the public release of the
parole hearing officer's recommendation by the National Parole
Commission and the immediate parole release of Leonard Peltier.
Contact the United States Parole Commission at:
Phone: 301-492-5952, or 301-492-5821
Fax: 301-492-6694, 301-492-5525, 301-492-5307

PLEASE DON'T SIT BY WHILE JUSTICE IS BURIED!
ACT NOW!!!!
