Tues. 12/20 11a: The “Leonard Peltier Walk for Human Rights” begins this Sunday. The walk will begin with a ceremony at Alcatraz Island in San Francisco Bay. It will follow a route across the southern U.S. and end in Washington D.C. in May.
The goal of the walk is to advance the economic, social, and cultural rights of all people. It is also designed to raise awareness of Peltier’s plight. He was convicted of murdering an FBI agent and has been imprisoned since 1976. Many people around the world view him as a political prisoner. Will you support the walk? Guests include walk organizer Dorothy Ninham (Oneida).
