A piece of the petition for clemency by lawyers - Martin Garbus, Esq. Cynthia K. Dunne, Esq. Carl Nadler, Esq ....
"For over forty years Mr. Peltier’s case has retained the support of your fellow Nobel Laureates including Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Jody Williams, Rigoberto Mencu Tum, Adolfo Perez, Esquivel Mairead Maguire, Shirin Ebadi Tawakkol Karman and the Dail Lama, as well as religious and human rights leaders from around the world including, Coretta Scott King, the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Center for Human Rights, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, the National Council of Churches, dozens of members of Congress, political leaders of Canada, and before his death, Nelson Mandela. In addition the National Congress for American Indians, Amnesty International, and former United Nations Rapporteur James Anaya all recognize and stress the historic importance of this case throughout Indian Country, and continue to support Clemency for Mr. Peltier as an essential reconciliatory action.
We respectfully submit that the very fact that for over 40 years so many activists, human rights leaders and Native communities remain committed to seeking reconciliatory action for Leonard Peltier, is itself compelling proof that there was a miscarriage of justice which requires thoughtful review and equitable resolution, taking into account the time already served. The supporters of this Petition include scholars and human rights experts who serve an essential function in our democracy; they operate as watchdogs and raise their voices in those rare instances like this, where there is a need for the Government to examine and re-evaluate its conduct, because even with the best of intentions, we are all human."
we love you
