Greetings relatives:

American Indian Movement leader and Indigenous Rights Activist, Leonard Peltier has been unjustly incarcerated for the past 31 years.

On Tuesday, February 6th, from 7:00pm – 9:00pm, the New York City Leonard Peltier Support Group invites you to an evening of music, history, spoken word, open mike & updates on his case.

Live music will be hosted by Native American activist and recording artist Wayquay for W.I.N.D. Running Mouth Radio. There will be a legal update by Peltier’s Attorneys and special guests from near and far as well as live radio interviews.

This will all take place at the International Action Center 55 W 17th St., 5th floor, NY , NY 10011 and you can call them at 1(212)633-6646 for more information.

If you are a drummer, musician, singer, or a poet and would like to dedicate a piece to Leonard Peltier you are welcome to attend and participate. There will be some light refreshments served, a live auction, and donations will be accepted at the door.

The late great Dr. Martin Luther King once stated, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” The wrongful imprisonment of Leonard Peltier is a grave injustice and these 31 years of injustice are a threat to justice everywhere.

I hope you can attend this special event in solidarity. Let us show Leonard that we have not forgotten.

In the Spirit of our ancestors,
Oma’bahari (with respect),
Roberto Mucaro Borrero (Taino),
President and Chairman, UCTP
Regional Coordinating Office

“Silence, they say, is the voice of complicity. But silence is impossible. Silence screams.
Silence is a message, just as doing nothing is an act.” – Leonard Peltier*
