Oppose the Death Penalty

Human Rights Community should note:

Pakistani POW Aimal Kansi is facing execution on November 7, 2002

Kansi attacked the CIA headquarters 13 years back. He was captured in Pakistan and brought to trial in the U.S. Hs appeals against the sentence of death which he received have run out.

His family is appealing to the Governor of Virginia for clemency. We urge all opponents of the death penalty to join the clemency plea by writing polite letters to:

Governor Mark R. Warner
State Capitol, 3rd Floor
Richmond, Virginia 23219

Information on the case:
Reference to it is available at the internet site of the attorney general Jerry Kilgore in the (press release) section where he has praised the decision of the circuit court.

Letters can also be sent to:

Office of the Attorney General
900 East Main Street
Richmond, VA 23219
(804) 371-8946 TDD
(804) 786-1991

The death penalty in a secular state like the United States is illogical because a secular state does not endorse ultimate religious ideas like a life after death.
