COLEMAN, FLORIDA — One week after an MRI confirmed a preliminary diagnosis that Leonard Peltier is suffering from an abdominal aortic aneurism, prison medical personnel still have not scheduled surgery to correct his medical condition.

Last Sunday evening, the  International Leonard Peltier Defense Committee (ILPDC) confirmed the  MRI results. At that time, the ILPDC said the size and location of the aneurism would be reviewed by physicians and a consultation would take place.

“Supporters should keep pressure on the Bureau of Prison for timely treatment and transfer to a suitable medical facility,” the ILPDC chairman Peter Clark stated.

Please visit http://www.bop.gov/inmates/concerns.jsp. Make reference to Leonard Peltier #89637-132 and USP Coleman I. Voice your concern about Leonard’s medical treatment, and let the federal Bureau of Prisons know that the world is watching. Demand that Leonard receive the best possible care.
