Republican Sinn Féin support Leonard Peltier

Recommended Posts

Leonard Peltier is a political prisoner from the United States. He is an activist of the American Indian Movement, held in jail for his political views for over 30 years.

 

From the 108th Ard Fheis held in Dublin on November 10 and 11, Republican Sinn Féin sent greetings to Peltier and demand his immediate release.

 

A motion in support of Peltier was carried by the delegates of Republican Sinn Féin. The motion from Cumann Dáithí Ó Conaill, Contae Muineacháin, read: “Go ndéanann an Ard-Fheis seo ár mbeannachtaí dlúthphairtíochta a sheoladh chuig Leonard Peltier, gníomhaí Meiriceánach dúchasach, príosúncach polaitiúl agus íobartach iomrall ceartas atá níos mó ná 35 bhliain I bpríosúin anois.”

 

(“This Ard Fheis sends solidarity greetings to Leonard Peltier, a Native American activist, political prisoner and victim of a miscarriage of justice, who has spent over 35 years in prison.”)

 

Following the vote in favour of the motion, Dieter Blumenfeld, International PRO of Republican Sinn Féin, said: “While RSF tireless campaigns for political status and the release of all internees held in Ireland, we do not forget our brothers and sisters in other areas of the world. We support all political prisoners and demand their release, in particular those who experience grave injustice such as Leonard Peltier and Ahmed Saadat.”

 

Críoch/Ends.
