.@BarackObama: Free Leonard Peltier

ILPDC Statement Regarding Leonard Peltier

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Coleman, Florida U.S.A. March 13,2014
 
From the International Leonard Peltier Defense Committee

It has come to our attention that the Federal Prison in Coleman, Florida is denying Leonard Peltier, a Native American political prisoner, medication that is essential in dealing with life threatening medical conditions. The ILPDC, as well as Amnesty International, and numerous national and international organizations, stand ready to confront this type of illegal, immoral and cruel and unusual punishment that affects political prisoners everywhere.

 
We must remind Americans that while they are pointing the finger at other nations regarding political prisoners, they have three fingers pointing back at themselves.  America cannot legitimately complain about other nations while Leonard Peltier and others receive this type of inhumane treatment.

    Glad you shared this, Susan. This is unconscionable.

    • I’d previously complained to the Federal Bureau of Prisons about their assigning Mr. Peltier to an upper bunk, which is contraindicated by his age and physical limitations … I don’t know if they’ve even addressed that matter yet, Jeff. Withholding medications is commonplace in corrections facilities, the issue comes up over and over again.

      • Jeff Nguyen says:

        Withholding meds seems to me to be the definition of “cruel and unusual” punishment.

  2. IMHO, mandatory, independent autopsies would facilitate a sharp, immediate decline in in-custody deaths from treatable chronic conditions as well as medical emergencies.
