               Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison, 9.10.2014.

Our meeting opened with our singing Happy Birthday for Anthony Boyd and the man who does the great formatting of our newsletter Wings of Hope. Happy Birthday to both! And speaking of the newsletter, it has finally landed at our printer, a little behind schedule, but then a little delay serves to remind us who are on the outside of the hurdles to overcome on the inside.

               Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison, 7.30.2014.

Top of our agenda was of course the botched execution in Arizona and the flood of articles weighing in on this. We heard from the U.K. that it made the headlines. One of the interesting fallouts was the statement by Arizona Senator McCain, himself a victim of torture in Vietnam, that this execution was torture. The importance of his statement cannot be underestimated because McCain is for the death penalty.

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon recently called on all nations to take concrete steps toward ending the death penalty. In his opening remarks at an event co-sponsored by the High Commissioner for Human Rights, Mr. Ban said, "Together, we can finally end this cruel and inhumane practice everywhere around the world." He noted that "more than four out of five countries — an estimated 160 Member States — have either abolished the death penalty or do not practice it."
