This month of November, supporters of Native American leader and political prisoner Leonard Peltier are in the midst of a month-long campaign seeking clemency for Peltier, who has been in a federal prison for over two decades.

After being turned down for an emergency meeting with Attorney General Janet Reno, leadership from the Leonard Peltier Defense Committee, the National Congress of American Indians and the Canadian organization “Assembly of First Nations” stormed the Department of Justice this past Friday and demanded a meeting to discuss the status of the Peltier case.

Jacqueline Agtuca, Deputy Director of the Office of Tribal Justice, was finally called out of a meeting in order to meet with the Native American leaders.

Guest:

  • Jean Day, from the Leonard Peltier Support Committee.
