"If you avoid breaking laws and do what you're told and ignore the poor, the oppressed and the downtrodden - you probably won't be bothered.

If you try to right what is wrong, however, you will surely meet great opposition and run the risk of imprisonment or death."

Leonard Peltier, Political Prisoner
January 23, 2004

Excerpt from Leonard Peltier's annual message delivered in conjunction with the 28th anniversary of his incarceration on February 6th.
