The Black is Back Coalition for Social Justice, Peace and Reparations stands in unequivocal solidarity with our Comrade Leonard Peltier, a courageous Indigenous freedom fighter who defended the sovereign Lakota people from murderous incursions and attacks by the colonial state and the FBI in 1973.

We demand an immediate cessation of the torture of Leonard Peltier.  We demand that the necessary medical care be immediately provided to Leonard Peltier to deal with the serious conditions resulting from nearly 50 years in the colonial prisons.

We recognize that the imprisonment of the Indigenous people is part of the attack on the Indigenous people whose land was stolen as part of the process of bringing freedom and wealth to European colonizers.

During the period of the 1960s mass uprisings by African and other colonized peoples inside the U.S. and around the world, the American Indian Movement (AIM) led a powerful struggle against neocolonial tribal leaders who worked with the oppressive colonial government.

Leonard Peltier was part of the struggle for Red Power that took place at Wounded Knee in South Dakota with the participation of more than 200 Indigenous nations who held power for 71 days.

Wounded Knee was the site of the U.S. government’s brutal massacre of 1890, after which the U.S. declared that “the west was won” and the genocide complete.

Our relative, Comrade Leonard Peltier was one of many AIM warriors who defended the masses of the Lakota people from the FBI’s murderous military assault that slaughtered at least 60 members of the Lakota people.

Two FBI agents were killed in the struggle. Comrade Leonard Peltier was captured, arrested and tried in U.S. colonial courts in 1977 with no evidence. He has been held as a courageous political prisoner for nearly 50 years, currently in Coleman Prison in Florida in brutal colonial conditions, often under lockdown without medical care.

BIB salutes the deep bond that African people in the U.S. share with the Indigenous people and our long history as the twin pillars of this colonial system that rests on the stolen land of the Indigenous people, the stolen labor and the kidnapping and colonial enslavement of African people. Free Leonard Peltier now!
