ALABAMA----impending execution

Urgent Action


EXECUTION RE-SET AFTER 30 YEARS ON DEATH ROW


Thomas Arthur, aged 75, is due to be executed in Alabama on 25 May. This is his
8th execution date since 2001, 3 times coming within a day of being killed. He
maintains his innocence. This would be the 1st execution under the current
Alabama governor

Write a letter, send an email, call, fax or tweet:

* Noting Thomas Arthur has not asked the governor for clemency, but calling on
her to stop his execution;

* Noting that during the time that Thomas Arthur has been on death row,
evidence of arbitariness and error in the US capital justice system has
mounted, and the use of the death penalty has declined as concern has grown;

* Noting his disproportionate punishment compared to the other persons said to
be involved in the murder;

* Expressing concern that the state has blocked advanced DNA testing in this
case.

Friendly reminder: If you send an email, please create your own instead of
