August 15, 2005

Aho My Relations,

On August 15, 2005 I was transferred to USP Lewisburg
in Pennsylvania. Life has been extra difficult for me
since I was transferred from Leavenworth. This system
is designed to make one feel very powerless, and what
they are doing with me now is definitely aimed to
erode my body and spirit even more. My loved ones, and
all of you, my friends and allies who continue to
support me, keep me sane and hopeful.

They say that it is in times of crisis that one can
really see who your real allies are. Those of you who
have contacted the Terre Haute Prison and the Bureau
of Prisons on my behalf, keep me in your prayers, and
are supporting my Defense Committee, have made an
enormous difference in my situation. I humbly thank
each and every one of you, and firmly believe that
your actions most certainly saved my life and
prevented me from living in an institution that is
well known for its extremely high crime and violence.
Also, health problems continue to plague me and the
conditions I was subjected to exacerbated them. I know
deep within my heart, that if there had not been such
an outpouring of support, concern and overall outcry
regarding my arbitrary detention, I would have
probably stayed in solitary confinement for an
indefinite length of time, or worse I would not have
survived in the general prisoner population. Although
I have been forced to endure many hardships, I will
never surrender, even if all that is left of me is my
spirit. Your love and support inspire me to overcome
everything.

I hope that here at Lewisburg I will be able to resume
living in the general population, practicing the
traditional ways and continuing with my artwork. My
defense team is preparing to go through some major
milestones. They need your support more than ever to
re-establish our office and prepare for upcoming
reviews and legal battles. Since Russ Redner, Paula
Ostrovsky, and Toni Zeidan do not want to accept any
salaries or remuneration of any kind, all of your
donations will go directly to the office transfer and
upcoming campaign.

I again want to express my sincere appreciation and
tell you once more that without you I am not sure I
could have survived this last month. Every day I think
about and pray for a time when I will be among you,
shoulder to shoulder, fighting for justice for my
people and our Mother Earth.

In the Spirit of Crazy Horse

Leonard Peltier

NOTE FROM THE LPDC:

Please contact USP Lewisburg to make sure Leonard
regains all his hard earned prisoner rights,
especially his religious rights, visitations, regular
phone calls and ability to paint. Be polite and
courteous, but let them know that a lot of us all over
the world are concerned about Leonard's wellbeing.

My husband and I wanted to write a note of encouragement to Leonard Peltier, but since this forum isn't very active, I thought it would be a good idea to check to see if the mailing address and prison assignment information for Mr. Peltier were still accurate.

Using Google, I found an article from 2016 that indicated that he has been moved to the United States Penitentiary - Coleman Facility - in Coleman, FL (the bop.gov says the prison is located in Sumterville, FL, but the prison handbook has Coleman, FL as the city for the mailing address).

I verified the accuracy of Mr. Peltier's location using the Inmate Locator on bop.gov. I was able to find out that he is, indeed, in Florida. According to the hyperlinked information on his name / record number, he is housed in USP Coleman I, which is high-security.

The mailing address should be:

LEONARD PELTIER
Register Number: 89637-132
USP Coleman I
U.S. Penitentiary
P.O. Box 1033
Coleman, FL 33521

All mail is read before giving it to the inmate. A long list of rules are posted on bop.gov's website (search for correspondence policy on the website) - there are several restrictions, but outside of the ones reminding you that you can't "discuss or plan a crime" or send nude photos, the main things to remember are:
- you can't send him stamps
- you can't include a self-addressed, stamped envelope
- the best I can determine, you can't send money straight to the inmate; instead, it must be sent to the prison's central processing agency

Since we can't send Mr. Peltier stamps or self-addressed, stamped envelopes to use to write us back, we will (of course) tell him that we don't expect him to write us back, as we don't want to cost him anything in terms of his available postage or funds.

(Interestingly, as I type this, there is a breaking news story on MSNBC about the Standing Rock Sioux protest of a pipeline in North Dakota. The tribe had filed for an injunction - the judge denied the injunction today - and within 15 minutes of the judge's decision, the Army Corps and the federal government / DOJ issued a statement saying that they will not be going forward with the pipeline at this point - and they are asking any private companies involved in the pipeline creation to "pause" construction of the pipeline. So far, MSNBC has not been able to get a statement from the private companies. I know it sounds odd, but I think this is a sign that my husband and I should go forward with our plans to write Mr. Peltier and offer him encouragement.)

I hope my research helps anyone who might be interested in writing Mr. Peltier.

Mr Peltier is still at USP Coleman 1

So this address is correct .

I don't want to invade Mr Peltiers privavcy but I would like to drop him some lines of encouragement.
