One of the protests of the 200th execution under Governor Rick Perry was held in Montreal, Canada on June 2, 2009. Below is some video of the “die-in”. The event was held by the DP Coordination Team of Amnesty International Canada Francophone and was organized by Charles Perroud, who in a message to us said that it was “A VIBRANT success last night, with even the more ‘popular media’, the ones never there to cover our events, coming in throngs!! Real strong coverage to say the least”.
- 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.
