Celebs react to Obama denying clemency to Leonard Peltier

Leonard Peltier is a Native American activist and part of American Indian Movement. He was given two life sentences for the fatal shootings of two FBI agents at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in 1975. He has spent 40 years in jail thus far and this denial is seen as a death sentence. He has maintained his innocence, and Amnesty International along with others have said he received an unfair trial.


juliettelewis======> @tysawright:@barackobama we urge you to grant clemency to #leonardpeltier. If you are heading to the DC area for the march, you can also join the daily vigil in front of the White House for Leonard. Call 310.872.4435 for more info. Another way to share support is to take a selfie with #freeleonardpeltier on your hand or a sign and post it to your social media account. ❤✊🏽🕊 #freeleonardpeltier #freeassata #freemumia #freeredfawn Please!!!
