by Mumia Abul Jamal on Death Row for a crime he did not commit "
Reflective, humorous, anecdotal, and focused, it is the voice of a
professional journalist and gifted storyteller. That voice can penetrate
even concrete, bend the power of law towards justice, and melt
institutional cowardice" Send $15.00 (includes p+p) to Prison Radio /

5.  Who Will Be the 500th Person Executed in the US?

Sometime in the next few weeks the United States will execute the 500th
person since the resumption of executions in 1977.

Will number 500 be:

. Tuan Nguyen, a Vietnamese native with mental illness and neurological
  impairment, on his 39th birthday, in Oklahoma?

. Joseph Faulder, a Canadian national, whose rights according to the
  Vienna Convention were violated, in Texas?

. Louis Truesdale, convicted of the kidnapping, rape, and murder of
  18-year old Rebecca Eudy, in South Carolina?

. Robert Robbins, who has dropped his appeals and volunteered for
  execution in Arkansas?

On the day that the United States of America executes the 500th person,
concerned individuals and groups like the Abolitionist Action Committee,
Citizens United for Alternatives to the Death Penalty, Amnesty
International, and The National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty
will draw attention to this solemn event by holding prayer vigils and
nonviolent rallies at state capitals and execution sites in the U.S.A.
Groups in Paris, Rome, Munich, Helsinki and Olso will conduct protests at
the American Embassies.

For more information about the 500th execution in the U.S.A. and this
national day of protest, call Joan Brett (214)768-3630, Rick Halperin
(214) 768-3284, or Abe Bonowitz (800) 973-6548.

  Black Panther Mumia Abu-Jamal
>At a time when indigenous rights are being sidelined and undermined in
>every way possible, when the debates on the Draft Declaration [on the
Rights of Indigenous Peoples] don't get a mention in the international
press, the imminent death of this man for a crime for which there is no
evidence at all, must surely symbolise the plight of all indigenous peoples
everywhere. Please help to prevent this outrage by sending in your votes.
