Come on out to the Wingnut Anarchist Collective to make signs/banners for the anti-death penalty protest the next day.

Virginia is planning to execute Teresa Lewis on September 23rd. The Anarchist Black Cross is planning a protest on September 23rd from 4-6 at 1111 East Broad Street.

If you want to come to either part of the protest, this craft night the night before will be a good chance to make signs that have messages that you would feel comfortable holding.

If you want to come and work on other crafts as usual with craft night, that is totally fine too!

Teresa Lewis is scheduled to be executed September 23, 2010

The Richmond Anarchist Black Cross will be attending a protest against the death penalty on Broad Street in front of the Governor’s Office at 1111 West Broad from 4-6 on September 23rd. The organization Virginian’s Against the Death Penalty may also be there.

We encourage people who can not attend, as well as those who can, to call the Governor’s office and email as well to let them know that you object to the execution. From the Virginians Against the Death Penalty (www.vadp.org): ACTION #1: Contact the Governor RIGHT NOW.

The most effective way to communicate your message at this stage is to write a letter asking the governor to grant clemency by commuting Bell’s death sentence to life without the possibility of parole.

Office of the Governor
Patrick Henry Building, 3rd Floor
1111 East Broad Street
Richmond, Virginia 23219

You can also contact the governor by telephone and/or fax. If you live in Virginia, be sure to start by stating your name and where you live.
