Help Leonard Peltier Receive a Necessary Medical Transfer

After nearly a three-week lockdown at UPS Coleman I, what we feared has
occurred. Due to being served one warm meal a day and bread and water for
the other meals during this period, Leonard Peltier’s blood sugar is high
and out of control. The solution? The doctor gave Leonard a list of foods
not to eat. But here’s the problem: ALL the foods Leonard has been told not
to eat are the only foods available to him.

Demand a transfer to medium security in a location that will afford Leonard
quality health care. Do NOT contact the prison. Instead, contact:

Charles E. Samuels, Jr., Director
Federal Bureau of Prisons
320 First Street., NW
Washington, DC 20534
Telephone: 202-307-3198

Be respectful, but firm. The situation is life threatening. After many
years of high blood sugar, Leonard is at serious risk for kidney failure
and the need for dialysis, blood vessel damage in the eyes that can lead to
blindness, and nerve damage in the feet that could lead to the need for
amputation. Supporters should also remember that Leonard already suffers
from a heart condition. Heart disease is, in fact, the number one cause of
death in people with diabetes.

Leonard needs our help. Act now. Write or fax a letter. Make a call. Send
an e-mail.
