"I am aware that many object to the severity of my language;
but is there not cause for severity? I will be as harsh as truth,
and as uncompromising as justice. On this subject, I do not
wish to think, or speak, or write with moderation. No! No!
Tell a man whose house is on fire to give a moderate alarm;
tell him to moderately rescue his wife from the hands of the
ravisher; tell the mother to gradually extricate her babe from
the fire into which it has fallen; but urge me not to use
moderation in a cause like the present. I am in earnest--I
will not equivocate--I will not excuse. I will not retreat a single
inch--and I will be heard."
(William Lloyd Garrison, Abolitionist, on Slavery, 1831)

I apologize if this has been forwarded by others - but felt it was worth
sending on.  Don't mean to step on anyone's political views, but this
indicates there is a chance that Leonard Peltier will be given clemency.
Certainly not a "done deal", but worth keeping an eye on.  Renee Still Day

EVERYONE--

Leonard called me from Leavenworth just a few moments ago (Sun 10:45AM)...
he's in unusually high spirits, and says he has reason to believe that
"something good" is about to happen soon.  He said he couldn't say more
right
now, but he's very hopeful of getting out.  I'm tremendously heartened to
hear that from Leonard. He's rarely sounded so optimistic.

As you may know, I've been running a "WRITE-IN LEONARD PELTIER FOR PRESIDENT

CAMPAIGN" all year, winning commitments from many many thousands of people
around the country to cast their protest ballots for Leonard.

I asked him just now if I should continue with this "LEONARD 4 PREZ
CAMPAIGN," and he tells me, "Harvey, I appreciate your efforts, but tell all

those who were going to vote for me that I release them from their
commitment...and suggest to them, if they want to help me, to vote for Al
Gore for President...that's what I would do if I could vote, and that's what

I hope every one of my supporters will do..."

PLEASE send this message TODAY to ALL you know!
