73 year old Leonard Peltiers Health is Slipping Away



Posted By Jazmyn Espinoza-Church September 12th, 2017

Native American political prisoner and activist Leonard Peltier has been imprisoned for more than 40 years, denied pardons even despite his health deteriorating throughout his sentence.

Very recently, though, it seems his health is slipping and he is very much aware of it. In early September, he was transported to an outside hospital for what he called a “routine heart stress test”. The test results were alarming-3 clogged arteries. The doctors scrambled to operate immediately, ending in a triple bypass, which is major surgery for anyone let alone a 73-year-old prisoner.

1. There is no justice for Peltier... This saddens me tremendously.

At least give him a compassionate release... (I'm afraid I don't hold out hope)
