As is well known, Leonard Peltier, who will be 78 years old next Sept. 12, is a distinguished Native American activist defender of human rights, of all human beings and of the entire living world, an innocent prisoner for almost 47 years.

Personalities such as Nelson Mandela, Michail Gorbaciov, Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Desmond Tutu, the President of the European Parliament David Sassoli, Pope Francis and the Dalai Lama, and with them millions of people from all over the world, as well as a large number of humanitarian associations such as Amnesty International, Human Rights World and many democratic institutions including the European Parliament and the mayors of various Italian cities, have committed themselves to the liberation of Leonard Peltier, through the granting of presidential pardon by the President of the United States of America.
