ABOUT THE INTERNATIONAL PELTIER FORUM (IPF)

 

 

LEONARD PELTIER

Quite often, Leonard Peltier is called the Nelson Mandela of the North American Indians. An indigenous activist who stood up for the rights of his people and was silenced by the government.

Leonard Peltier is an Anishinabe/Lakota who was sentenced to two consecutive life sentences, and who today is incarcerated at USP Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, although there is NO PROOF AT ALL that he is guilty of any crime or offense whatsoever. Quite on the contrary!

For a detailed chronology of the Peltier case, please see the main menu.
 


VIP FORUM

In the past years, several well-known personalities have already called upon U.S. Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barrack Obama to grant freedom to Leonard Peltier.

Also, Amnesty International has been monitoring the case.

Furthermore, the Belgian Parliament and the European Parliament have each adopted two resolutions, asking the U.S. government to start investigations into the misconduct of the FBI in this case, and to grant Leonard Peltier executive clemency.



In August 2001, KOLA decided to start an International Forum for Leonard Peltier.
This forum mainly consists of well-known writers, musicians, visual artists, journalists, scholars, fashion designers, models, actors, movie directors, TV & radio hosts, athletes, politicians, human rights organizations, and high nobility from Australia, Austria, Bangladesh, Belgium, Canada, Cuba, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kazakstan, Luxembourg, Mexico, Monaco, Morocco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Peru, Poland, Russia, Somalia, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey, Uruguay, and the United States.


         
         
         
         
         
       


We have written to hundreds of VIPs worldwide.
All these personalities were asked to sign a forum letter. These letters are presented to the United States' President and to the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee. At the same time, the name and excellent reputation of these VIP signatories will hopefully stimulate the media worldwide to give more public space and attention to the case of this American Indian political prisoner, who has now been incarcerated for 35 years while there is more than sufficient evidence that there has been a gross miscarriage of justice during his trials and - more important - that he is innocent.
