KBOO COMMUNITY RADIO & INTERNATIONAL LEONARD PELTIER DEFENSE COMMITTEE PRESENT: WARRIOR: THE LIFE OF LEONARD PELTIER. With post-film discussion with Leonard's son, Chauncy Peltier!! Suggested: $5-10 donation. No one turned away for lack of funds! Co-sponsored by Oregon Jericho, Portland Anarchist Black Cross, NW Alliance for Alternative Media & Education
The shocking, true story of Leonard Peltier, the American Indian leader locked away for life in Leavenworth Penitentiary, convicted of the alleged murder of two FBI agents during a bloody shoot-out on the Pine Ridge Reservation in 1975.

Around the world his trial and conviction have been denounced as a sham. Amnesty International, Archbishop of Canterbury, Desmond Tutu, and more than fifty members of the new U.S. Congress have appealed for a new trial for the man who has come to symbolize the continued oppression of America’s indigenous peoples.

To understand Peltier’s story, Warrior takes us back to the violent confrontations at Pine Ridge and Wounded Knee in the Seventies, and then to today’s Indian reservations where the government's plans for uranium mining and waste dumping are still being heatedly resisted by Indian activists. The heart of the film, though, is a detailed painstaking account of Peltier’s harrowing odyssey through the American justice system.

Join us for a special film screening of this documentary about Native American Political Prisoner Leonard Peltier. The film features special interviews with Leonard himself, activist and experts on the caseof his wrongul and political incarceration. Leonard's son Chauncy Peltier will hold a Q&A after the film so you can find out how to get involved. Leonard's artwork will also be on display and for sale!
