Leonard Peltier - U.S. Penitentiary Lewisburg under Lockdown......
Call to Support


Call to support Leonard Peltier on Monday - 7/14 On Monday July 14th there will be a concentrated 'call in' and 'emailing' to get Leonard Peltier his Diabetes testing kit and diabetic shoes. From 10:00AM - 1:00PM Eastern standard time (7am-10am Pacific) please call:Warden Bledsoe at USP Penitentiary LewisburgPhone: 570-523-1251 Let them know that Leonard NEEDS his Diabetes testing kit and diabetic shoes, and his health is suffering because he has been denied these basic supplies. The U.S. penitentiary at Lewisburg is in lock down, lock downs, especially those that last a long while,are dangerous. Why? First, it's common for Leonard not to receive his medications at such times.Second, the prison has told all of us that Leonard has access to a diabetes testing kit in the infirmary.Right? Unfortunately, during a lock down, Leonard isn't allowed to go to the infirmary at all.There's no way for him to test his blood glucose level......

Demand effective medical treatment for Peltier

The Leonard Peltier Defense Offense Committee is requesting that Peltier supporters contact prison officials to demand that Peltier, who has diabetes, be allowed to have his own diabetes kit so that he can accurately monitor and control his condition.

Peltier, a participant in the American Indian Movement, was wrongfully convicted in 1976 of the death of two Federal Bureau of Investigation agents in a shoot-out at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. He has been imprisoned ever since, despite revelations of coerced testimonies, fabricated and suppressed evidence, and federal officials stating that it is unknown who fired the shots or what role Peltier may have played.

The infirmary at Lewisburg Penitentiary, where Peltier is being imprisoned, has a general diabetes kit for all prisoners. The committee has raised concerns that due to the embedded memory in the device, Peltier could be receiving false readings. Furthermore, Peltier has reported that there are often no medical personnel on hand when he goes to the infirmary, and he must return over and over until someone is there to assist him.......

Dear Supporters,

Great news! No more phone calls, letters or e-mails are needed. We heard from Leonard this morning. He now has his own diabetes testing kit in the infirmary. He also is receiving his medications as prescribed. He asked me to thank all of you for your care and concern and for taking such strong action on his behalf.
