Leonard Peltier Update: Medical Treatment

The biopsy that was ordered by a physician last November was finally
performed yesterday, 23 February. Leonard will receive the results
in roughly 7 to 10 days. The feedback from the physician wasn't
positive, however. Everyone must continue to pressure the BOP for
Leonard's transfer so that he can receive timely, quality care.

Dear Mr. Lappin:

It has come to my attention that Leonard Peltier #89637-132, an
inmate at the U.S. Penitentiary in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, is in
dire need of medical attention.

I believe that Mr. Peltier's medical needs are urgent. He needs to be
seen by proper medical staff. Therefore, I respectfully request that
Leonard Peltier be transferred to FCI-Oxford in Wisconsin or
FMC-Rochester in Minnesota. Either of these facilities can adequately
accommodate Mr. Peltier's medical needs.

Thank you in advance for transferring Leonard Peltier and immediately
addressing his medical needs!
