A Message from Leonard Peltier:
To LPDC Supporters,
Delaney Bruce, a former LPDC Committee member from 2003, and the website
FreePeltierNow, ARE NOT affiliated with the LPDC, nor does she have the
authority to represent me and /or the LPDC. I am requesting that Delaney
Bruce, and the Friends of Peltier affiliated with the Free PeltierNow
website, CEASE AND DESIST IMMEDIATELY in making unauthorized statements,
decisions and unwarranted representation on my behalf.
A message from LPDC Committee:
For quite some time there have been many messages, statements and news items
circulated through a variety of sources pertaining to Leonard Peltier. While
we feel that this is good for the most part, it has become necessary to
issue this statement concerning unauthorized, misleading or unrepresentative
statements on the web.
In February 2007, a website appeared called FreePeltierNow. This website is
NOT affiliated or authorized by the LPDC, nor is it the official LPDC
website. Our website address remains as <http://www.leonardpeltier.net/>
This newly created website, FreePeltierNow has caused alot of confusion
among the LPDC supporters. The person managing this site, Delaney Bruce
appears to have the names and email addresses of our supporters from the
LPDC list serve. They have been emailing the LPDC supporters, with their own
website info and updates. The LPDC DID NOT release, authorize the use of, or
sell the LPDC email addresses and/or listserv to anyone, at any time.
Hundreds of our supporters suddenly starting receiving emails, from the
FreePeltierNow listserv in February 2007, that have NEVER signed up for
their updates or info.
How could they, it was a brand new website?
Many of the official emails that were generated from the LPDC, have been
forwarded to their lists and have been edited or modified, prior to sending.
Even Leonard's own words have been changed by them in these emails.
The person behind the FreePeltierNow website, Delaney Bruce is a former
committee member for the LPDC and absolutely does not represent Leonard
Peltier or the LPDC. She has no authorization to be continuing to represent
Leonard Peltier in anyway. There are many reasons why Delaney Bruce no
longer represents Leonard Peltier or the LPDC, her prior history has been
that of creating dissention, miscommunication and alienating our supporters.
Delany Bruce is not familiar with our ongoing, day to day work for Leonard
She has NO communication from Leonard and/or the LPDC
She is not familiar with the team players. At times she sends out statements
that imply that Leonard and/or the LPDC endorse certain individuals,
organizations or group affiliations. In most cases, the statements provided
are inaccurate and the LPDC is not in any way affiliated with, support or
endorse what is being implicated in her statements.
The website and her work are unsolicited by Leonard Peltier and the LPDC
We always appreciate your continued support for Leonard Peltier and the
If you have any questions, please contact the LPDC at
