The death penalty puts innocent people at risk of execution.
Todd Willingham
Todd Willingham was wrongfully executed under Governor Rick Perry on February 17, 2004.

Support Todd Willingham’s family as they request a pardon for Todd. Call Texas Governor Perry to urge him to pardon Todd Willingham. Say something along the lines of “I’m calling to ask Governor Perry to posthumously pardon Cameron Todd Willingham. Todd was wrongfully executed–despite overwhelming evidence of his innocence–by Texas in 2004, and his final wish was that his name be cleared.”

Call Governor Perry: the number is 512-463-2000.

A petition to Texas Governor Rick Perry and to the State of Texas to acknowledge that the fire in the Cameron Todd Willingham case was not arson, therefore no crime was committed and on February 17, 2004, Texas wrongfully executed an innocent man.

The 13th Annual March to Abolish the Death Penalty will be Saturday November 3, 2012 at 2 PM in Austin, Texas at the Capitol. Meet at the Texas State Capitol Building on the South Steps (11th and Congress).

UPDATE Oct 18: Anthony Haynes received a stay of execution from the U.S. Supreme Court about three hours before his scheduled execution.

From the Houston Chronicle:

Anthony Haynes moved a step closer to execution on Tuesday when the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles unanimously rejected his request that it recommend his death sentence be commuted to life in prison.

Haynes alternately had asked the board to recommend to Gov. Rick Perry that his execution be stayed for 90 days to allow for a review of his case. The board also rejected that request.

Haynes is scheduled for execution on Thursday, Oct 18, in Huntsville.

Members of TMN will be in Huntsville on October 18 to protest the scheduled execution of Anthony Haynes. There will be a short five minute black and white 16 mm film shot on the 18th about what happens outside the prison on the day of an execution. It is being made for a UT film school class. The film will contain no dialogue, just images of what happens. We encourage anyone who can make it to Huntsville to attend the protest.

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.
