               Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison, 4.8.2015.


We are still talking and rejoicing about Anthony Ray Hinton’s great news. What is more, the world is rejoicing with us. We received word from places as distant as Afghanistan to countries in Europe from supporters/friends that the release of Anthony Ray Hinton had made national news. We can’t even begin to count the number of national and international articles and videos which reported on this!

               Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison, 3.11.2015.

We were devastated by the news that the State has set three execution dates: Greg Hunt, 4.16.; Christopher Brooks, 5.21; Robin Meyer, 6.18. People ask how can they do it? We have no answer. Other states have put their executions on hold, for example Florida, but Alabama appears not to care about the upcoming hearing before the U.S. Supreme Court and the hearing in the Alabama Federal District Court on the execution protocol before Judge Watkins in early May.
