Starvin’ for Justice Fast & Vigil and 13 Activists on Trial

Join us for the Annual Fast & Vigil in Washington, DC    June 28th – July 2nd, 2012

The four-day Fast & Vigil takes place on the sidewalk in front of the U.S. Supreme Court, considered by many to be the heart of the legalized killing machines in this country. We hope you will consider joining the dozens of anti-death penalty activists who come regularly from across the U.S. and Canada – from Florida to Alaska and everywhere inbetween – to join together for public education and outreach at the steps of the Supreme Court.  Click Here for more details for the schedule of events or more visit www.abolition.org

Support your friends in court June 27, 2012!

Trial begins for the 13 anti-death penalty protestors who unfurled a “STOP EXECUTIONS” banner on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court on January 17, 2012 – the 35th anniversary of the first modern-era execution in 1977. Come out to support the defendants as they make a stand against the death penalty and try for a win of the first amendment!

Location: Superior Court of the District of Columbia, 500 Indiana Ave, NW. We are scheduled to be in courtroom 220, but you should check the lobby monitors to confirm. Judge McKenna is the presiding Judge in the case.  Click Here to learn more about the Jan 17th Action
