Execution Alerts and More…

Greetings All,
We’ve been very busy here at the National Coalition office in Washington, DC. And with the departure of our Communications Director (David Elliott – see http://www.deathpenaltyusa.blogspot.com/) we’re a little behind on some of the things that were on his plate – most immediately, the execution alerts that a number of you have been asking for. We are developing a new mechanism to convey the information about upcoming executions and ways to take action and that should be ready soon.
However, with TWO executions pending THIS WEEK, I wanted to get the word out immediately. See below for this week’s list from the "For Whom The Bells Toll" Campaign, which lists the names of those being killed as well as the names of the victims in those cases.
Please consider taking the "For Whom The Bells Toll" campaign to your community of faith. The "For Whom The Bells Toll" campaign engages communities of faith who toll their bells or otherwise display their opposition to executions on days when executions are taking place. For more information, please follow the links in the message below.
Please note that those who wish to write letters or send e-mail or fax messages to various government officials asking that executions be stopped should see the listing of all appropriate officials and their contact information below the list of execution dates. This list does not include case details beyond the names of the person being executed and the victim(s) in whose name(s) the executions are taking place. NCADP hopes to be able to provide such information shortly. For now, here are links to actions for the executions scheduled for this week in Mississippi and Georgia.
 
Please see the "For Whom The Bells Toll" List below. But first, a few additional and important announcements:

The following information is gleaned from various sources and is intended to give you as accurate a listing as can be expected. All of these execution dates are considered to be serious, although stays can be granted up until the last minute. If we learn of a stay for an execution scheduled in the coming week, we will try to alert you via this e-mail list. Any stays issued for execution dates beyond the next week or two will be reflected in the next update. New updates will be posted as significant adjustments warrant. Generally there will be at least two updates each month.
Please toll your bells at 6pm local time for two minutes on the following dates. If you have elected to display the banner or another message, please do that all day. Please remember to explain your activities to the local media and to members of your faith community. For more information, please visit our webpage at <http://www.curenational.org/~bells/>
Please note: In the listings below, we have included the name of the victim(s) for whom the state is killing in our names. Please remember them and their families and friends in your prayers as well.
Finally, we are still developing this list service. If you have feedback or suggestions, please send to <tollbells@abolition.org>
Since the last update no prisoner received a stay.
And no prisoner was killed.
Total killed in 2008: 1
Total killed since resumption of executions in 1977: 1100
