Political Prisoner & Native Elder Leonard Peltier Has Several Health Conditions … and Now COVID


Political prisoner Leonard Peltier, who is 77 and has been behind bars for more than 45 years after being falsely accused by the FBI, now has COVID – as well as several health conditions making him far more vulnerable.


Jean Roach, who is Mnicoujou Lakota, co-director of the International Leonard Peltier Defense Committee and AIM Grassroots, a grandmother, an artist, and a survivor of the 1975 shoot out in Oglala, South Dakota, where the false charges against Peltier originated from, explains that Peltier should be hospitalized immediately and freed from prison.
