Rally for Leonard Peltier
Published Feb 5, 2006 8:11 PM
Supporters of U.S.-held political prisoner Leonard Peltier will rally in New
York City on Feb. 6 to demand his release.
Peltier has been behind bars

30th anniversary of Peltier’s imprisonment will “mark the launch of
a series of actions this year as we struggle to free Leonard
