Free Leonard Peltier: Hip Hop’s Contribution to the Freedom Campaign. This album, put together to support the Leonard Peltier Freedom Campaign, features some of contemporary rap’s best and brightest political voices, including M1, Immortal Technique, T-K.A.S.H., Talib Kweli and 2Mex.
Leonard has been incarcerated in Federal Prison for the 1975 shooting death of two FBI agents during the government siege of the Pine Ridge Lakota Indian reservation since 1977. His extradition from Canada, his trial, his conviction and his post-trial experience has been one long example of the hypocrisy of the colonial “justice” system. To learn more about the Peltier case check out Friends of Peltier and Leonard Peltier Defence Committee.
The album is available for purchase & download at CDBaby. It is also available for download on iTunes, Amazon.com, and more! So pick it up, and help popularize and given money to a worthy cause.
