Hamburg protest for Leonard Peltier
On Thursday, August 25, some forty persons from diverse regions of the world gathered in front of the US Consulate in Hamburg, Germany, to protest against Leonard Peltier being placed in solitary confinement and being denied the neccessary medical care. During the hour long action the political activists held a banner with the wording "Yes you can Set him free" and distributed flyers. Speakers highlighted the case of Leonard and his more than 35 years of unjust incarceration, but also spoke about the situation of Mumia Abu-Jamal and the general plight of political prisoners in US dungeons.
