Leonard Peltier Health And Family News

From the MumiaNYC website:

Due to this health crisis, it’s doubly important for supporters to join the activities in DC this week–the 12/10 candlelight vigil, in particular.

December 5, 2016

Greetings my friends and relatives,

Early this morning I was taken out of my cell in chains and taken to the infirmary where I was told to wait, sitting up in a chair which was very uncomfortable.

After about an hour an outside doctor came in and talked to me. He said that they need to do surgery on my prostate right away. As you know I have been complaining about prostate symptoms for years. He described what is usually a very long and painful recovery period, but then said that he does a new procedure that is much less difficult.

I do not know when or where this will take place. All I know is that he said it has to be done ASAP.

I would like to thank all of my friends who reached out to ask that my health issues be addressed I believe that without that help I would not be seeing an outside doctor now.

I will ask that people keep me in their prayers going forward.

I will try to let someone know as soon as I hear more if there is time.

  1. Hopefully there will be strong support for this vigil. I wish I could be there.

  2. I hear you. And I hope President Obama grants him the clemency he so dearly deserves.
