If you can not see the photos below, click here for pictures of the protest in Paris France and here for the photos of the protest in Leipzig, Germany. In Leipzig, Amnesty International-Leipzig placed 200 white crosses and candles on the sidewalk leading to the U.S. Consulate to protest the 200th execution under Texas Governor Rick Perry. Leipzig is a sister city of Houston, Texas. Scott Cobb of TMN visited Leipzig in 2003 and participated in a panel discussion about the death penalty hosted by ai-Leipzig. 200th Execution protests were also held in several other cities in the U.S., Europe and Canada.
Texas Moratorium Network (TMN) is a non-profit organization with the primary goal of mobilizing statewide support for a moratorium on executions in Texas. Significant death penalty reform in Texas, including a moratorium on executions, is a viable goal if the public is educated on the death penalty system and is encouraged to contact their elected representatives to urge passage of moratorium legislation.
