The nominee for new Homeland Security secretary, back in 2002, worked hard to keep the public from hearing courtroom testimony that would have revealed the Bush government’s new campaign of torture, allowing it to spread from Afghanistan to Guantanamo to Iraq.
Please help stop the planned execution this Monday of the first person to be executed in New England in 45 years. We need as many people as possible to be at the Judiciary Committee public hearing on Monday, January 31, 2005 from 2: 00 P. M. to 7: 00 P. M. in Room 2E of the LOB (Legislative Office Building) in Hartford, CT. And please forward this message to others!!!
Terrible allegations of torture under the Rodríguez Zapatero government
Detainees denounced they were subjected to torture; they have described sessions of suffocation, electric shocks… and a young woman denounced she was raped with a loaded gun
The sheer stupidity and bloodymindedness of the death penalty crowd is on view in the decision to seek the death penalty for a guy who caused a train wreck while trying to kill himself. It's a little like giving money to a convicted bank robber, isn't it?
