The 13th Annual March to Abolish the Death Penalty will be held in Austin on Saturday November 3, 2012 at the Texas Capitol at 2 PM.
Now is the time to join the fight to end the death penalty! More and more people are concluding that the death penalty is a punishment that Texas can do without.
Texas has executed 489 people since 1982 (as of October 31, 2012). Since Rick Perry became governor 250 people have been executed, including Todd Willingham, who was an innocent person executed by Texas in 2004.
Anthony Graves is an innocent person who was released in October 27, 2010 after 18 years in prison for a crime he did not commit, including 14 years on Texas death row.
Texas is nearing 500 executions since 1982. Rick Perry is nearing 250 executions since he became governor.
Before his execution, Todd Willingham told his parents, “Please don’t ever stop fighting to vindicate me.”
Before his execution, Troy Davis told his supporters in a letter, "There are so many more Troy Davises. This fight to end the death penalty is not won or lost through me but through our strength to move forward and save every innocent person in captivity around the globe. We need to dismantle this Unjust system city by city, state by state and country by country."
