I discovered a new blog today – Death Penalty News. The author states:
I oppose the death penalty in all cases unconditionally regardless of the method chosen to kill the condemned prisoner.
The blog compiles stories about the death penalty from around the world:
- Saudi beheads man as UN cries foul
- New Execution Fears For Sakineh Mohammadi: Amnesty International
- Mercy Sought as Delaware Execution Nears: Robert Gattis
The blog provides action ideas – see the article about Sakineh Mohammadi for ways to speak against her possible execution. In the case of Robert Gattis, who faces a January 20 execution date, two online options are available:
- Stop the Execution of Robert Gattis in Delaware (from Amnesty International)
- Delaware Board of Pardons and Parole AND Governor Jack Markell: STOP THE EXECUTION of ROBERT GATTIS, Delaware death row inmate
I have subscribed to Death Penalty News and look forward to learning more.
And I have taken action on behalf of Sakineh Mohammadi and Robert Gattis. I invite you to do the same.
See you along the Trail.
