PLEASE CIRCULATE WIDELY

Friends,

In collaboration with the national Leonard Peltier Defense Committee, for the 14th year, there will be a "fast for justice" between October 1 and 12th to demand Leonard's release and the renaming of October 12th "Indigenous People's Day."

2005 is the thirtieth year of Leonard's imprisonment for a crime he did not commit. The government has admitted in open court that they cannot prove that he was responsible for the death of two FBI agents on June 26, 1975 during a shoot-out on the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota.

Leonard continues to stay strong behind bars. We must stay strong out here working for justice, peace, human rights and in defense of our seriously threatened ecosystem. We must be visible and active during this October time period when the reality of this country's genocidal actions against Indigenous Peoples comes to the surface because of the Columbus Day holiday.

I have been in discussions with the leadership of the Leonard Peltier Defense Committee about this fast. They intend to do active outreach within their network to find additional fasters and to play an active role in the lead-up to October 12th and the local actions that will be happening in different parts of the country around that time.

Please be in touch if you will be joining this year's fast, whether for one, 12 or some other number of days, whether on water-only or juices and teas.

In solidarity,

Ted Glick
