To honor Leonard Peltier’s 71st birthday, with the International Leonard Peltier Defense Committee and NYC Jericho Movement, NYC ABC is co-sponsoring a free screening of Warrior: The Life Of Leonard Peltier. Although not a new film, Warrior covers the story of Leonard Peltier, an innocent man locked away for life in the U.S. prison system. Leonard is a Native American political prisoner, convicted of a crime that he did not commit during a bloody shootout on the Pine Ridge Reservation in 1975. Around the world his trial and conviction have been denounced as a sham. Please join us and sign a birthday card to Leonard and a letter to President Obama asking that he grant executive clemency to Leonard.
