Bitte unterschreibt Petitionen gegen die Todesstrafe und rassistische & willkürliche Haftstrafen! (19.2. – 3.4.2014)

Die Todesstrafe ist keine angemessene Antwort auf Mord und Kriminalität. Wo sich der Staat zum Richter über Leben und Tod aufschwingt, nimmt nicht Gerechtigkeit ihren Lauf, sondern Rache und Vergeltung.

Die Botschaft von Amnesty International lautet deshalb unmissverständlich: Staaten können nicht gleichzeitig die Menschenrechte achten und die Todesstrafe verhängen und vollstrecken.

Aus diesem Grund setzt sich Amnesty International seit über 30 Jahren gegen diese Strafe ein. Und dies mit zunehmendem Erfolg: Immer mehr Staaten schaffen diese Strafe ab. Dennoch bleibt noch viel zu tun, Jahr für Jahr werden tausende Menschen hingerichtet. (Amnesty International)

Clayton Darrell Lockett is scheduled to be executed in Oklahoma on April 22nd, 2014

Death row inmates ask for stay of executions –

E-mail Governor Fallin

Lawyers for two Oklahoma death-row inmates say that despite adverse rulings for condemned killers from Missouri and Texas before the U.S. Supreme Court, they believe their challenge to the state’s execution law won’t meet the same fate.

Clayton Lockett and Charles Warner sued the state in February over what they called a „veil of secrecy“ surrounding execution protocols and the origins of drugs used in lethal injections.

 Recent cases in Missouri and Texas also seeking information on drug suppliers were not taken up by the U.S. Supreme Court, though lawyers for Lockett and Warner say they aren’t concerned because they’re not pursuing claims in federal court.

 Lockett and Warner are both scheduled to be executed later this month.

Abolish the Death Penalty in New Hampshire

Two thirds of the world has abolished the death penalty in law or in practice. 18 states in the US have done the same.

Stand in solidarity with organizers and activists in New Hampshire, who are closer than ever to ending the death penalty in that state. Together we will abolish the death penalty throughout the nation and the world!

Tenneesee: Governor Haslam – Do not resume executions in Tennessee

Petition Background

As someone who spent 10 years in prison for a crime I didn’t commit (three of those on death row), I have grave concerns about Tennessee’s plan to resume executions this year. I now call the great state of Tennessee my home, and I don’t want to see our state risk executing the innocent when we have less costly alternatives available. Paul House, Michael McCormick, and Gussie Vann, are all individuals who were sentenced to death in Tennessee, only decades later to be exonerated, after evidence of their innocence was finally considered. Given the problems with Tennessee’s current death penalty system, we cannot trust the system to get it right 100% of the time. Please join me in asking Governor Haslam not to resume executions in Tennessee. Thanks for your support,

Ray Krone
(Ray Krone became the nation’s 100th death row exoneree when he was released from prison in Arizona in 2002.)

Email to the Governor of Texas regarding the execution on Mexican citizen Ramiro Hernandez on April 9th, 2014

Dear Governor,

Mentally retarded Mexican citizen Ramiro Hernandez-Llanas is a Mexican national who has been on death row in Texassince 2000. Although the U.S. Supreme Court prohibited the application of the death penalty to persons with mental retardation in Atkins v. Virginia (2002) Mr. Ramiro Hernandez is scheduled to be executed in Texas on April 9th, 2014, also in violation of the Vienna Convention.

In accordance with the Council of Europe and the European Union I oppose the death penalty in all cases, and especially when considering the life of a mentally retarded Mexican citizen, and his right to seek assistance from the Mexican consulate.

In September 2013, Secretary of State John Kerry urgedTexasnot to set an execution date for Mr. Tamayo. He warned that the execution could have serious diplomatic repercussions and that it would be “extremely detrimental to the interests of theUnited States”—including by damaging relations between theUSandMexico, and complicating theUSgovernment’s ability to help American nationals detained abroad. SuchUScitizens benefit from the Vienna Convention, with consular visits ensuring food, medical care and legal representation. – Mexican officials – including the country’s foreign minister and its ambassador to theUS– have reportedly intervened, seeking a stay of execution and asking forTexasto cooperate with the judgment of the International Court of Justice.

Unfortunately Texasexecuted Mr Tamayo. In a similar case, Texasset an execution date for Mr. Ramiro Hernandez on April. 9th, 2014

I am asking you to commute the death sentence of Mr. Ramiro Hernandez to life without parole and to grant a stay, respectively, thus allowing the US Congress to enact urgent legislation to implement the International Court of Justice’s Avena judgment.

An Injury to One is an Injury to All! Free Marissa Alexander

Free Marissa Now member and victim’s advocate, Sumayya Fire, stated, „Remember that this entire case boils down to a woman defending her life from her husband who attacked her, strangled her, threatened to have her killed, whose beatings have sent her to the hospital and likely caused her to have premature labor.  A husband who confirmed in a deposition that he beat her, that he was in a rage when he attacked her, and that he has beaten other women with whom he was involved.  Remember that when Marissa Alexander fired her warning shot to save her own life, she caused no injuries.  Now she’s facing the very real possibility of spending the rest of her life in prison for that act of self-defense.  That should send a chill down the back of every person in this country who believes that women who are attacked have the right to defend themselves.  Anyone who believes that domestic violence is unjust should be deeply shaken by Corey’s abusive prosecution of Marissa Alexander and advocating for Alexander’s freedom.“
