“Free Leonard Peltier Now” with Jean Roche & Carol Gokee

Leonard Peltier, a visionary hero among Native Peoples of North America, a peaceful  activist and member of the American Indian Movement, has spent 47 years in prison. We call on President Biden and AG Garland to immediately release this elderly man, this good man, this hero to Native Peoples. Our speaker, Jean Roche, as a child survived, and was saved by Leonard during the shootout that became called The Incident at Oglala, the event that led to Leonard’s imprisonment. Jean is traveling the world on behalf of freedom for Leonard. She joins us from Greece. 

Leonard received CCB’s Sacco and Vanzetti Award in 1992. We will play a digitized excerpt of his remarks made that day from prison by phone.
