appeal for Leonard Peltier

17 May, 2018

Warden Charles L Lockett, USP Coleman I

PO Box 1023, Coleman, Florida

USA    33521

Hello Warden Lockett:

Prisoner Leonard Peltier deserves timely and quality healthcare as any person would. I understand that at FCI Coleman he is experiencing difficulties in receiving such care for an enlarged prostate and also knee and hip problems, perhaps exacerbated by age and 40 years of imprisonment.

You should insure that Mr. Peltier receives the health care he needs. It would also be appropriate to move Mr. Peltier closer to his home in the Dakotas.

Sincerely,

Richard Keller

04 September, 2017

Dear Editor,

New Zealand Navy ship Te Kaha returned to Devonport in July after sailing with the USA Seventh Fleet through the Western Pacific. Consider the implications for NZ anti-nuclear stance if any NZ Navy ship was sailing with a US fleet when an attack was launched over the Korean crisis. Read the rest of this entry »
