Leonard Peltier Walk for Human Rights

The LEONARD PELTER WALK FOR HUMAN RIGHTS will be arriving in Dothan/Cottonwood on March 24th. Join us, at our home,  on Sunday evening, March 25th from 5pm to 7pm, to see the film, Incident at Oglala. (Location: 121 Lewis Street, Cottonwood, AL 36320)

On June 26, 1975, during a period of high tensions on the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota, two FBI agents were killed in a shootout with a group of Indians. Although several men were charged with killing the agents, only one, Leonard Peltier, was found guilty. This film describes the events surrounding the shootout and suggests that Peltier was unjustly convicted. Written by Eric Sorensen <Eric_Sorensen@fc.mcps.k12.md.us> and starring, among others, Robert Redford.

Following the movie, you will have an opportunity to speak with Dorothy Ninham, National Coordinator of the LEONARD PELTIER WALK FOR HUMAN RIGHTS and the Executive Director of Wind Chases the Sun (www.windchasesthesun.org) Fellow walkers will also share in the discussion. We will be accepting donations for the walkers to assist them on the remaining two months of their walk. Donations can be gas cards, cash, water and food.

Some of Leonard Peltier’s art will be exhibited and prints will be available for sale.

On Tuesday, March 27th and March 29th, the community is invited to walk with the walkers from 8am to 10am. Locations to be announced.

 Let us support an amazing man, humanitarian, artist, warrior for human rights and justice, and author, who has spent decades in prison for a crime he did not commit. For more information on how you can assist in the Free Leonard Peltier Campaign visit: www.whoisleonardpeltier.info
