The Leonard Peltier "Walk for Human Rights" arrived in Fresno Wednesday morning. It is named for a Native American activist convicted of killing two FBI agents on the Pine Ridge Reservation back in 1975. A crime many say Peltier didn't commit.
The walk organizers aim to bring attention to all human rights violations. "On our walk, what we like to do, is honor those people who were wrongfully killed. And also bring attention to all the human rights violations that takes place in this country, and continues on our reservations throughout the United States."
The march started at Alcatraz on December 16th and will finish in Washington DC on May 18th.
