Voices of Death Row Inmates International Protests April 30th

The Voices of Death Row Inmates will hold a peaceful protest in London, Australia, Ohio and Texas against the death penalty on Friday, April 30th. In order for our Innocence Team to be successful in our struggles against wrongful convictions, we need to build collaborations, coalitions, and working relationships with other similarly focused groups. Just as they need our support for their events, we will need theirs. In this particular instance, the relationship between the death penalty and wrongful convictions is obvious: the death penalty risks the execution of innocent people. If you can help their event, either by helping to spread the word about it, or even with your attendance, please do so.

Pastor Thom Miller will be holding a peaceful protest outside the gates of Ohio death row on the same day as the London, Australia and Texas protest. He will be joined by many other men and woman who oppose the death penalty.

Pastor Thom has been a spiritual advisor to the men at Ohio’s death row for many years now. He has accompanied many men on the final leg of their journeys, witnessing firsthand the brutal way these men are legally murdered. Pastor Thom will be visible by the men on death row.
If you would like more information on the event, please contact
Pastor Thom Miller at
PO BOX 7015
Mansfield OH 44903

The event will be at:
Ohio State Penitentiary

“At the London event we will have several guest speakers and hopefully an exonerated former death row inmate. We are proud and honored to announce that Gilles Denizot has confirmed that he will be there to speak about his life working to end the death penalty. We are holding this event to show that the world has not forgotten the inmates which sit awaiting their state sanctioned murder. We urge the U.S to abolish the death penalty. They need to be heard and we are their voice. So make the 30th April available in your diary and get yourself down to London, we all fight for the same thing and so join us in solidarity. This WILL be a day of success and will be the first of many events held by ''VOICES FOR DEATH ROW INMATES''

The London event will be held from 12:00pm - 5:00pm at:
U.S Embassy
Grosvenor Square
