Posts from artist, author and musician Jennifer Katherine Shields about that sort of stuff. Author of Against the Current and Project Evasion. Musician, also as Open Eyes. I produce a show at 95bFM, produce and present two at Fleet FM and write reviews and things for NZ Musician. Trans. she/her/hers or neutral (a/ath/athes preferred) pronouns.

Sign the petition to stop this injustice going ahead. This has been going on since 1987. Three previous executions have been stopped, and a 63000 signature petition has been delivered to the Georgia Board of Pardons and Parole. Crowds have marched through Atlanta demanding a stay. Jimmy Carter has joined with other public figures calling for a stay.

Please take action. Sign. Reblog. Spread this around. This injustice cannot, must not go ahead. This is inhumane. This is inappropriate. There is far too much doubt.
