A crazy, seemingly insane idea is what is presented at www.cuadp.org (Citizens United Against the Death Penalty). The site is undoubtedly the most comprehensive, useful and informative anti-D.P. site one could ever hope to find.
The execution information page has update information on trials, execution dates, pending dates and past execution information. A resource section offers a bridge to academic resources, though, of course, information that is only from an abolitionist perspective.
Click on ‘Wrongly Executed’ and you will find a sickeningly long list of names. Each name also links to full information about the deceased’s case and history.
The ‘Abolition Wear’ catalogue is by far the dankest part of the site. Here you will find the only comprehensive source for buttons, hats, shirts, stickers and signs that champion death penalty opposition. No one likes to kill people, so hop on, buy something or get more information because this is definitely the best place to start.
Last week’s web watch is posted this week.
