Help Leonard Peltier get MEDICAL CARE & FREEDOM!

The Leonard Peltier Ad Hoc Committee
is raising funds for medical and release efforts

Leonard will be 80 years old in September 2024. He is suffering with severe medical issues, which are not being treated by the prison. He is losing his eyesight (blindness that can be prevented) and has a host of painful and serious healthcare problems. Our elder, Leonard Peltier, needs to be transferred to a medical facility that can and will give him medical care.

Most of all, Leonard needs to go home to be with his family and community outside of prison, after 48 long years.

Our Committee is raising funds for expenses related to retaining independent medical experts, accommodations, travel, materials, and other expenditures related to Leonard's medical care and release efforts. This is all critical to get him proper medical care and release from prison.

Please contribute what you can. Share this fundraiser.

Co-Founder Kwame Beans Shakur,
Still Being Unjustly Held in Solitary
Confinement & Now on Hunger Strike

UPDATE: Kwame went on a hunger strike on June 9, 2024 in response to being held in solitary confinement under a fraudulent investigation. Breakfast time on June 10, 2024 was his fourth meal missed, which requires the response of medical personnel and higher ups to come and evaluate his health and ask why he is on a hunger strike. As of 11:44AM no medical or higher ranking staff have come to evaluate him.

ALSO, last night, sometime after 9:00PM, an individual or individuals from the E Squad came in and unplugged the WiFi connected to Kwame and his neighbor’s cells, leaving them with no way to use their tablets and communicate with anyone on the outside. The rest of the entire range had WiFi. The WiFi issue was discovered and resolved after Kwame was taken to the shower and refused to get out of the shower until they figured out why he and his neighbor were the only two without WiFi. At that time a CO asked for the keys to the room that holds all the WiFi boxes and it was discovered and told to Kwame that someone intentionally unplugged their WiFi box from the wall. He also demanded that it was verified that he is on a hunger strike and missed his 4th meal this morning.


UPDATE: Kwame was brought another completely blank “review” on June 7, 2024). This “review” was again blank except for “pending conduct: none” and “under investigation per DII”. Please continue to call but more importantly EMAIL.

UPDATE: Kwame was brought a “review” on May 30, 2024 that stated he was under investigation and his pending conduct was listed as “none”.

Script for calling/emailing: “I am a (family/friend/comrade) of Michael Joyner DOC #149677 and I am (calling/emailing) to demand he be placed back into general population. Kwame is being unjustly held in RHU (solitary confinement) on a fraudulent investigation as retaliation and harassment for his affiliation with community improvement organizations. This is a direct violation of his civil rights.”
