State Execution: Area Vigils this Thursday


From AWRN partner Project Hope Against the Death Penalty:

Friends,

The State of Alabama is preparing to execute Thomas Whisenhant on Thursday, 5.27.10 at 6 p.m. at Holman State Prison. Below are the vigils around the state. Please support them and remember that it is not too late to call or fax the Governor and that it is never too late to protest all killing. Phone: 334 242 7100, fax: 334 353 0004.

Thank you for all you do.
