The campaign demanding the release of Peltier is a longstanding one, supported by grassroots activists and organizations including Amnesty International. The campaign highlights the politically motivated injustices of his arrest, conviction, and imprisonment. CUPE is a longstanding supporter of calls to release Peltier.
