The state has no right to kill, however common the practice has been since time immemorial.About that baby still in the womb: the issue here is to help women find ways to limit their fertility so that they are never in a situation where they cannot bear the child they are carrying.

Oh, the article mentions praying but, of course, mention the murderer first. I guess I am one of those crazy people who actually have compassion first and foremost for the victims of the heinous crimes. It sickens me to see all of the sanctimonious, self righteous Christians who utterly ignore the victims and their families so they can proclamation to the world their superior beliefs of reserving all of their compassion for the criminal. Should we minister to the criminal? Of course. But not one of the anti -death penalty folks even mentioned the victims. Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Anti-death penalty activists hold a vigil outside the governor’s mansion in Little Rock, Arkansas, on April 20 in this photo shared on Facebook by the Arkansas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty.UPDATE: Arkansas executed death row inmate Kenneth Williams late April 27 after a prayer service hosted by Trinity Episcopal Cathedral.[Episcopal News Service] Episcopalians in Arkansas are preparing to gather once more for a prayer service on the eve of what is expected to be the final in a series of expedited executions by the state, which activists say could give momentum to efforts to abolish the death penalty.Arkansas is scheduled April 27 to execute convicted murder Kenneth Williams, 38, the fourth death row inmate to be executed in a week, as the state rushes to carry out the sentences before its stock of one of its lethal injection drugs expires. Before this month, Arkansas had not carried out an execution in nearly 12 years.As it did on the eves of the previous three executions, Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Little Rock will hold a brief ecumenical service at 6 p.m. April 27 followed by a candlelight vigil that will culminate in the toll of bells. The service will offer prayers for Williams, for his victims and their families and for the corrections employees who will be carrying out the execution.“For all of these, and for ourselves, we will pray for hope, for strength and for mercy,” cathedral spokesman Josiah Wheeler told Episcopal News Service.The Episcopal Church has stood against the death penalty since it was reinstated by the Supreme Court in 1976, with several General Convention resolutions calling for the death penalty to be abolished, most recently in 2015.The death penalty still is in effect in 31 states, but the number of executions nationwide has dropped steadily since 1999, from a high of 98 that year to 20 in 2016, according to the Death Penalty Information Center. Arkansas has executed 30 inmates since 1976 but none since 2005, until this month.The state had planned to execute eight inmates in 10 days, starting on Easter Monday, but four of those executions have been halted by court order.The Episcopal Diocese of Arkansas has been active in efforts to end capital punishment in the state, and Bishop Larry Benfield joined clergy from other denominations on April 12 in a rally at the Capitol to call on Gov. Asa Hutchinson to stop the executions.Diocese of Arkansas Bishop Larry Benfield speaks April 12 at an anti-death penalty rally at the state Capitol. Photo: Diocese of Arkansas“We have believed in the goodness of hard work and respect for neighbor and faith in God. But we are being led astray by a peculiar ethic that states that vengeance is a virtue, when in fact it is not,” Benfield said, according to quotes provided by the diocese. “I can only speak from the Christian tradition, but I can say definitively from my own religious upbringing that vengeance is not a mark of Christian ethics.”The Rev. Mary Janet “Bean” Murray, a retired deacon, and member of St. Michael’s Episcopal Church in Little Rock, said she and other anti-death penalty activists are disheartened that a fourth execution is expected to be carried out, but they already are looking beyond this week in stepping up their push for changing state law. She is vice president of a group called the Arkansas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty, which met this week to discuss its future strategy.“We will continue to work and work until the death penalty is no longer an issue,” Murray told ENS.Caroline Stevenson, another Episcopalian from Little Rock, said the recent executions may give people who favored the death penalty a reason to rethink their support.“I think that we can change some minds with the facts,” said Stevenson, a member of Episcopal Peace Fellowship. “We have to challenge people’s faith and say, this isn’t what Christianity is all about.”Four states have abolished the death penalty since 2009: New Mexico, Illinois, Connecticut and Maryland. Nebraska’s Legislature passed a law in 2015 eliminating capital punishment, but it was reinstated by popular vote in 2016.Public opinion has for decades tilted in favor of the death penalty, with a Gallup poll from 2016 showing 60 percent of respondents supporting a death sentence for someone convicted of murder. Support typically decreases when alternatives are suggested. When asked whether they would choose to sentence a murderer to death or to life in prison, 50 percent said they would choose the death penalty in a 2014 Gallup poll.The fight to abolish the death penalty may remain an uphill battle in pro-death penalty states like Arkansas, but Murray and other Episcopalians see killing of any kind as incompatible with what their Christian faith teaches.“When we say in our baptismal vows that we’ll respect the dignity of every human being, that includes criminals too,” Murray said.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Thousands demand new trial for Imam Jamil Al-Amin

first_imgJamil Al-AminImam Jamil Al-Amin, now in a U.S. prison serving 35 years to life and formerly known as H. Rap Brown, is one of the best-known Black liberation fighters of the 1960s and 1970s. He served as chair of SNCC (Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee), a youth-led organization that bravely and boldly organized grassroots communities in the rural South to fight for voting rights and against Jim Crow segregation.His compelling and dynamic speeches, delivered in rhythmic style, inspired people to join the struggle then sweeping the country. Brown was surveilled by federal agents, received death threats from the KKK and other white supremacists, and was harassed and arrested by local police forces.This unrelenting state repression led to Brown serving five years in a New York prison, where he converted to Islam, taking the name Jamil Albdullah Al-Amin.Following his release, he settled in Atlanta, established a mosque in the West End of the city, and organized to provide safety and security to his community.On March 16, 2000, events had unfolded outside Al-Amin’s neighborhood store that authorities strung together into a complex web of disinformation. After two deputy sheriffs were shot, one of whom died, there has been a train of falsehoods, disregarded evidence, state prosecutorial misconduct and all the features of a frame-up. Al-Amin was convicted on charges related to those events on March 9, 2002, and sentenced to life plus 35 years. Then the state of Georgia secretly turned him over to federal authorities. For the last 13 years, he has been transferred between multiple institutions, including seven years in solitary confinement at the inhumane Supermax facility in Florence, Colo.His supporters and family have been fighting to win a new trial for Al-Amin, based on evidence not allowed into the 2002 proceedings. Otis Jackson, currently in a Florida prison, confessed on videotape, during an unrelated trial, to killing the Fulton County deputy sheriff in question. Jackson not only fits the description of the perpetrator provided by the surviving deputy, his testimony corroborates other evidence found at the scene.Pressure is being brought on the Fulton County District Attorney’s office to reexamine the violations of Al-Amin’s rights committed at the original trial, as well as the strength of the new evidence, and to order a new trial for Al-Amin. Tens of thousands have already signed the petition for a new trial. The DA’s office has been flooded with calls and letters.

Appeal court upholds five-year jail term for cyber-dissident Zhang Lin

first_img April 27, 2021 Find out more ChinaAsia – Pacific ChinaAsia – Pacific June 2, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Organisation News Follow the news on China In an appeal hearing on 14 October, the Anhui province high court upheld the five-year prison sentence which a lower court passed on Zhang Lin, a pro-democracy intellectual and cyber-dissident who has been held for nearly 10 months. The Agence France-Presse news agency quoted his wife, Fang Cao, as saying the ruling was “absurd” and that “the two courts did not rule according to the law but out of revenge.”Zhang was convicted on 29 July of making statements “contrary to the bases of the constitution” and “endangering national security” in an interview for a foreign radio station and in articles and essays (including the words of a punk song) that he posted on the Internet.——————–12.10.05Cyberdissident Zhang Lin ends hunger strikeReporters Without Borders has learned that Zhang Lin started eating again, on 28 September 2005, almost one month after beginning a hunger strike. The cyberdissident, sentenced to five years in prison in August for writing articles “contrary to the Constitution”, has been left extremely weak from his ordeal.Zhang Lin suffers from minor heart problems as a result of his prolonged fast. The prison authorities have refused to transfer him to hospital, despite the fact that he is in a poor state of health. He is however receiving medical care in prison.He is allowed to receive visits from his lawyer, but not from his wife, Fang Cao. After ending his hunger strike, he told his lawyer that he would “never give up morally” and he thanked all those who supported him in China and abroad, whom he asked to continue to work for “freedom of expression”.—————-23.09.05No word of cyber-dissident who has been on hunger strike for three weeksVoicing concern about the lack of any word since 8 September from imprisoned cyber-dissident Zhang Lin, who has been on hunger strike for the past three weeks, Reporters Without Borders today urged Prime Minister Wen Jiabao to intercede to get his conviction reviewed. Zhang is serving a five-year sentence for endangering national security.“We call on the Chinese authorities to move at once to release this famous cyber-dissident for humanitarian reasons,” the press freedom organisation said.Zhang, who has been detained since 29 January, began the hunger strike on 1 September to protest against the mistreatment and long hours of forced labour to which he was being subjected in Bengbu prison, in Anhui province. He told his lawyer, Mo Shaoping, he intended to continue the hunger strike “for 100 days.” He was taken to hospital after one week, but was returned to prison when he refused the prescribed treatment.No one has had any contact with him since 8 September, when his lawyer was able to speak to him briefly. His wife, Fang Cao, has been trying to visit him in order to persuade him to call off the hunger strike. But the prison authorities told her on 21 September there was no possibility of communicating with him because “all detainees must be cut off from the exterior.”The mother of two children and short of money since his arrest, Fang continues to write him a letter every two days, but has not received any answer.Zhang was convicted by a Bengbu court on 29 July for giving an interview to a foreign radio station and for posting articles and essays (including the words of a punk song) on the Internet. The court found that their content was “contrary to the bases of the constitution” and “endangered national security.” October 18, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Appeal court upholds five-year jail term for cyber-dissident Zhang Lin to go furthercenter_img China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes Receive email alerts China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison News Help by sharing this information News News March 12, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

[Unlock 2]’People Have Got A Wrong Impression That They Can Now Freely Mix With Each Other’: Allahabad HC Suggests Incarceration Of Persons Flouting Physical Distancing Norms To prevent the same, the Division Bench comprising Justices Siddhartha Varma and Ajit Kumar have issued a slew of directions, including use of CCTV cameras to monitor whether people follow social distancing norms, appointment of Advocate Commissioners to oversee the ground situation, etc. Monitor Crowds Via CCTV The Bench stressed that there has to be a “comprehensive strategy” to ensure absolute compliance of wearing of masks and of social distancing norms by people. It has therefore directed the District Administration of Prayagraj to “install sufficient number of high-end CCTV cameras in addition to the ones which have been already installed in all such places where normally it is known that crowd of more than 100 accumulates” It has been directed that when the CCTV footage is reviewed by the Zonal Officers, they shall report the matter to the SSP who shall immediately take action against the police officials posted in the area where it is found that people were conglomerating and were violating the COVID-19 Regulations of maintaining physical distancing and wearing of masks. Appoint Advocate Commissioners The State Legal Services of UP has been asked to appoint “Advocate Commissioners” in consultation with the Municipal Commissioner, Prayagraj, to oversee conditions in each of the 80 Wards within the city. It has been instructed thus: Each Advocate Commissioner must be a resident of one of the wards in respect of which he shall be making the inspection. Each Advocate Commissioner shall have 4 Wards under him/ her and the Advocate Commissioner shall on a regular basis go around his/her area and see if any crowd is there and also see if anyone is avoiding the wearing of mask in public.The Advocate Commissioners shall report any violation of the COVID-19 Guidelines immediately to the Zonal Officer of the Nagar Nigam who shall in his turn take suitable steps. Essential Services The High Court observed that people are taking the COVID-19 directives casually on account of Unlock-4 and they are thus more likely to get affected in large numbers. Therefore, it has asked the State Government to take such measures as are necessary to secure public health services under Section 112-B of the UP Municipal Corporations Act, 1959 and under similar provisions of the Municipalities Act, 1916. To this end, the Court has directed the State to “revitalize” its Primary Health Centres and other dispensaries in the urban, suburban and rural areas. “Collection centres of samples for testing the COVID-19 virus be there in all such health centres all over the district. Further, the Provincial Medical Service may be revitalized and they may have a ‘State of the Art’ facilities for all and sundry in the hospitals which are run by it,” the Court directed. It further ordered the State to: Take all necessary steps to establish a dedicated COVID Hospital as early as possible and place on record a blue print for the project within ten days;Ensure that no commercial activity takes place within containment zonesBar Associations in the State may frame guidelines for enforcing the wearing of mask in and around Court premises.
