FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: The Conveyer Belt Spins Again
A 1700 MILE JOURNEY TO REPEAL THE DEATH PENALTY IN THE USA: NM SOLIDARITY
See Christy's piece just below the execution dates...
April 19, 2008 at 10 AM ~ District Courthouse, Albuquerque, NM Meet with this solidarity support if you're in New Mexico.
Contact: Christy Armell
X plans to continue to speak along the way, arriving in Texas in May and in NM where he will speak and perform in mid-June. X has been joined at gatherings by nationally recognized opponents of the DP like Bill Pelke of the Journey of Hope whose grandmother was brutally murdered, and Abe Bonowitz, co-founder and director of the National Coalition to Abolish the DP and board member of the US Section of Amnesty International (AIUSA). Sunday, April 20th, Capital X will be walking for Michael Astorga to help bring awareness to the state of New Mexico about the atrocity of the death penalty.
ON April 20th, same time Andre will be in North Carolina, where he will speak-- Christy Armell, an Albuquerque activist vocally opposed to the death penalty, is holding a press conference in NM in solidarity with Capital X as he speaks about the treachery and inherent monstrosity of State murder and mass incarceration. The resent decision of the Supreme Court regarding the use of lethal injection will effect the two men currently sitting on death row in New Mexico, as well as any defendants that face the penalty of death in this state. One in a hundred Americans are now locked up and over 3,000 are in death row across the nation. Christy will be joined by other activists and prisoner families.
Andre will be available to ABQ media by phone, and together he and Christy will speak out regarding the current status of the death penalty in both NM and the nation. They will speak in support of Michael Astorga, as well as a young Texas death row inmate, Rudy Medrano
