Leonard Peltier, el "Nelson Mandela sioux" (USA)

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Amnesty International considers Leonard Peltier to be a political prisoner whose avenues of redress have long been exhausted.... Amnesty International recognizes that a retrial is no longer a feasible option and believes that Leonard Peltier should be immediately and unconditionally released."
Amnesty International, April 6, 1999.

"I have been reading in Leonard Peltier´s book, and about an hour ago I spoke with him .... He is a remarkable person and the depth of his spirituality shows .... I would hope that the campaign to have him freed will succeed. I certainly support it very passionately .... Because it is a blot on the judicial system of this country that ought to be corrected as quickly as possible."
Archbishop Desmond Tutu, April 18, 1999.
