Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison 3.6.24

The Attorney General has asked for execution dates for Jamie Mills and Keith Gavin by lethal injection. We will keep you posted once a date has been set. The Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall's office also asked the state Supreme Court to set an execution date for Alan Eugene Miller. The state said Miller’s execution would be carried out using nitrogen. This is the second execution date as Mr. Miller survived a botched and very painful execution attempt. Now the state plans to use nitrogen hypoxia which to quote a lawsuit "The results of the first human experiment are now in and they demonstrate that nitrogen gas asphyxiation is neither quick nor painless, but agonizing and painful.

From our friends at Alabama Arise: “the bill prohibiting execution by nitrogen hypoxia is HB 248, sponsored by Representative Rafferty. The bill making the ban on judicial override retroactive is HB 27, sponsored by Representative England. You can follow both of the bills on our bill tracking website: https://www.votervoice.net/ALARISE/Bills#/new_tab “ Also a reminder that the Alabama Arise Legislative Day is April 2nd in Montgomery. Time to register!

We appreciated the Op-ed: Gov. Ivey and Alabama Legislature must act to save lives of Death Row inmates by TJ Riggs and Fred Shepherd both representatives of Amnesty International in Alabama. They address the importance of HB 27 and the immediate halt of nitrogen hypoxia.

We are working on the next edition of our quarterly newsletter, Wings of Hope and before all too long it should be on its way to Esther.

We thank all who are working so hard and diligently to stop all killing in Alabama! And as always in closing, we thank all our generous donors who either gave by going to our website and using the “donate” button or who gave directly.
