Rick Perry holds the record for most executions of any governor in U.S. history. The 250th execution in Texas since Rick Perry took office as governor is currently set to take place on Halloween, Wednesday October 31, when Donnie Roberts is scheduled for execution unless he receives a stay. On October 31, we will protest the 250th execution at the Texas Capitol on the South side outside the gate facing Congress Avenue. TMN encourages people to come to the Texas Capitol from 5:30-6:30 on October 31 to protest the 250th execution of Rick Perry's tenure. Donnie Lee Roberts Jr., 41, is scheduled to die by lethal injection Wednesday evening at the Texas state prison in Huntsville for the 2003 murder of Vicki Bowen at her home on Lake Livingston. If you are in Houston on the 31st, you can participate in a protest being organized by the Texas Death Penalty Abolition Movement at The Old Hanging Oak Tree in downtown Houston at Capitol and Bagby Street from 4-6 PM. You can call Rick Perry and leave a message for him at 512 463 2000.
