Legislative Assistant to City Council President, Buffalo, New York….

Native American Political Leonard Peltier still waits for his
Michael Kuzma, Esq. fresh out of a "FOIA Hearing" on Leonard Peltier’s
behalf….will be our call in guest on NAMAPAHH First People’s Radio THIS
Thursday night 5-1-08 from 7-8:00PM.
Mr.Kuzma will introduce those unfamiliar with Native American Political
Prisoner Leonard Peltier’s case. Back in 1977 Peltier, who was a member of
the American Indian Movement at the time, was charged with murder &
convicted with the deaths of two FBI special agents, Jack Coler & Ronald
Williams who died due to gunshot wounds on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation
in South Dakota on June 26, 1975.
Mr. Kuzma will also update those who have long followed Peltier’s case, many
who even filled the streets with the chant "What do we want…
‘Justice’…when do we want it… ‘Now’…
‘Free Leonard Peltier’ ….."
Considering the time period in some people’s minds, this could be considered
just another Indian War, but modern day…many people died on Pine Ridge
back then and sad to say many people are still dying on Pine Ridge. How many
Native American people died at the hands and neglect by the US Government,
Isn’t this supposed to be a Democracy that has been mandated by treaties to
take care of tribal people? Isn’t this the same US Govt. that has sent
countless men & women off to the Middle East in the name of Democracy?
What is wrong with this picture? What happened to a fair trial? Why is
Leonard still serving two life sentences? Why won’t the FBI agency free
these crucial records, claiming to withhold it in the name of "National
Security" ? What will the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit decide
after this hearing that happened last week? If Leonard’s constitutional
rights can be violated, what about yours/mine/future generations to come?
Michael Kuzma, Esq. has asked me to ask all of you to email question to me
before Thursday night’s interview. Any ideas & opinions will also be
considered for airtime Thursday night.
My email is: email@example.com
This is an election year, as we are all too well aware of- It’s time for
Justice, Leonard deserves a fair trail, like every person who lives in

March 11, 2008
Up to this very day, the FBI is still withholding thousands of pages from
the RESMURS files that have never been made available to Leonard Peltier or
his attorneys. Documents are supposed to be automatically declassified after
25 years under Executive Order 12958. The FBI is arguing that this material
should not be subject to automatic declassification because it could damage
or cause serious damage to national security and the so-called war on
transnational terrorism. The FBI also claims that the release of the
withheld documents would reveal the identities of confidential sources. Mr.
Peltier’s lawyers have argued that these are nothing more than pretense to
prevent the release of further evidence of the continuing violation of Mr.
Peltier’s constitutional rights and further drives home the fact that Mr.
Peltier never received a fair trial.
A hearing regarding the release of these documents will take place on
Tuesday, March 11th, 2008, beginning at 9:00 a.m. before the U.S. Court of
Appeals for the 8th Circuit. Court will be held at the University of St.
Thomas School of Law in the Frey Moot Courtroom at 1000 LaSalle Avenue,
