November 30th Day of Action Against Executions
Local Protests and Screenings Draw Attention to Case of Stanley "Tookie" Williams
November 30th was a Statewide Day of Action Against the Scheduled Executions, in conjunction with World Cities Against the Death Penalty Day. Rallies and Press Conferences were held in front of City Halls and other locations across the state of California and in over 300 cities across the world, calling for a halt to all executions. The cities of Santa Cruz, West Hollywood and Berkeley officially signed up as "Cities Against the Death Penalty" and commemorated the day by lighting up city monuments.

Local cities that held rallies on Wednesday, November 30th at 12pm included San Francisco (imc_photo.gif Photos), Sacramento, Santa Cruz (imc_photo.gif Photos), Woodland, and San Jose (at 200 East Santa Clara St, between 4th and 6th Streets). Rallies took place in San Rafael at 4:30pm at San Rafael Plaza, and in Fremont outside of Mission San Jose at 7:15am. "Redemption," the film about Tookie Williams, was screened that night at the Black Repertory Theater in Berkeley. Angela Davis, Paul Ortiz, and Lance Lindsey, the Executive Director of Death Penalty Focus, spoke at a Forum on the Death Penalty and Stanley Williams that was held at UC Santa Cruz. Pacifica Radio programs such as Democracy Now (extended interview with Williams) and Against the Grain (11/29 show with Save Tookie organizers) featured coverage of Williams during this week. A panel discussion about the death penalty will be held at San Francisco State University at 7:30pm on Thursday, December 1st. "Redemption" will also be shown on Saturday, November 2nd, at 7pm in Palo Alto. On December 4th, "Redemption" will be shown at the Victoria Theater in San Francisco. Danny Glover, Barbara Becnel, and Kevin Epps will speak at the event. Many more events are planned for the remaining two weeks before the scheduled execution of Williams.
