ALL WELCOME!!!

The Free Kevin Cooper Committee For a California Moratorium wishes to thank
you all for all the hard work to help save Kevin Cooper's life. As you know
on the day Kevin was scheduled to be executed, February 10, the Ninth District Court
granted a stay and the US Supreme Court upheld a stay of execution pending
further testing and testimony. IT IS A TREMENDOUS VICTORY. WE MUST
CONTINUE THE EFFORTS because Kevin is still on death row.

We need your help to get Kevin a new trial and win a moratorium on executions in
California as a step towards abolishing the death penalty.

On Saturday, NFL Hall of Famer Jim Brown spoke at a Kevin Cooper Committee sponsored
event in Richmond calling for a moratorium on executions in California after meeting
with death row inmate Stan “Tookie” Williams. Barbara Lee has also announced
her support for a moratorium and the California State Legislature is considering
commissioning a study of the bias in California’s death system. This would lay
the legal basis for a halt to executions.

Please check http://www.savekevincooper.org for updates.


Bill Lockyear, the state attorney general, is stubbornly
trying to appeal again to execute Kevin Cooper as rapidly as possible. The
testing of tampering is just one small piece of the prosecution's weak case.
WE MUST DEMAND THAT BILL LOCKYEAR DEMAND A NEW TRIAL. In the meeting we will
explore effective ways to leverage our efforts.

Upcoming Events:
*Stan “Tookie” Williams new movie, Redemption, to be aired on Fox on Easter Sunday
April 11th. Stan is on death row in San Quentin and was recently nominated for a
Nobel Peace prize for his anti-violence children’s books. We plan to organize
screenings of this movie across the state. It was recently premiered to
enthusiastic reviews at the Sundance Film Festival.

*Peace March in San Francisco on March 20th

*Mumia Rally April 24th in San Francisco

PLEASE COME ON MONDAY, MARCH 1st, TO OUR MEETING AND PLEASE RSVP BY
RETURNING THIS EMAIL OR SENDING AN EMAIL TO CHRETIENTODD@AOL.COM
