Leonard Peltier's Health is Deteriorating

Recommended Posts




If you or a loved one has any type of serious chronic health condition, you'll understand. PLEASE LEONARD NEEDS YOUR HELP NOW....and WE REALLY need to PUSH this petition harder!! http://www.avaaz.org/en/petition/Freedom_for_Leonard_Peltier_Grant_Clemency_Now/?wViFsab  Sign it ONLY ONCE, if you signed in the past do not sign again but Share it Everywhere and in all ways…It is ONE thing WE can ALL do!! If you’ve seen Leonard’s recent Statement on June 26, 2013 for Leonard Peltier Day, you know he is having serious health concerns. In his statement he said,


 "I am always asked about an update on what is going on with me and I will try to explain. As my team can tell you, my blood pressure is high, my diabetes is out of control to the point of causing problems to my sight and I have a lot of pain in walking. My medication has been withheld for several months and doctor appointments are a rare occurrence. I have been tested for prostate cancer and although I was never given any clear answer of whether or not cancer exists, the symptoms indicate there is definitely something wrong. The recent problems with shortness of breath and chest pains are causing me additional stress. I assure you, this is not the place to be sick or to have health problems because in prison, we are just another number.”


You can see the whole statement here >  http://www.whoisleonardpeltier.info/2013/06/statement-from-leonard-on-oglala-commemoration/ If by chance you have no idea who Leonard Peltier is, please go to his website > http://www.whoisleonardpeltier.info Please understand that Leonard is a private person and doesn’t routinely share his medical situations with others, so for him to make a public statement such as he has, we know things are serious for him. I will tell you truthfully that as a RN, if Leonard were not in Prison and told me of his current symptoms of Chest Pain & Shortness of Breath, I’d drag him to the closest Emergency Room ASAP and see that he get admitted for a complete evaluation and treatment!


So what can WE do? With the recent publicity with Leonard Peltier Day and President Obama’s Executive Order Establishing the White House Council on Native American Affairs > http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2013/06/26/executive-order-establishing-white-house-council-native-american-affairs AVAAZ has again taken notice of the petition we are helping to push! WE really need as many signatures as we can get and then hopefully this will go out to over 24 million members associated with AVAAZ! This will certainly put pressure on President Obama and it is a tool we have RIGHT NOW…and we’d all be fools not to use it PLEASE, even if YOU think petitions are worthless and that this will not help, it's not about anyone of us individually, it's about all of us working together to help Leonard as best we can.


Additionally, Everyday if you can please call, tweet, and/or e-mail The White House/President Obama. They need to understand that Urgent means Urgent! Send letters as often as you can, I have one going out daily.
