Walk to stop executions

Earlier this week we told you about Lisa Thomas, the Alabama woman who walked from Selma to Montgomery in protest of the death penalty in general and in support of Darrell Grayson in particular.

Now we bring exciting news of a new walk that is being planned -- this one 800 miles and this one in California. In the sponsors' words:

Walk to Stop Executions
Death penalty opponents from Death Penalty Focus, California People of Faith Working Against the Death Penalty, and Amnesty International USA will embark on a 800 mile Walk to Stop Executions on September 15, 2007. The purpose of the walk is to draw attention to the issue of the death penalty, unite local activists, and to encourage the district attorney in every county along the walk route not to seek the death penalty in any case.

There's a new blog to support this effort.

Stop by and say howdy. And while you're at it, give a shout-out to our friend Stefanie!
