|BRUCE ELLISON: (Leonard Peltier Defense Attorney)
Mr. Ellison was a member of the Wounded Knee Legal Defense/Offense Committee and has been representing Leonard since Leonard's trial. Not only did he witness specific incidences during the Pine Ridge Reign of Terror, he has researched, studied and documented the FBI's involvement on Pine Ridge and the FBI's activities against AIM. Perhaps more then any other. Bruce is familiar with the legal history of the Peltier case, as well as other AIM members unduly prosecuted during that era.
