On June 4th, earlier this year, I broadcast a show, supporting the West Memphis Three.
Anje Vela joined me in the studio again to provide an update on what has been happening with the case, and about a new auction item that will be available from December 11th (Damien Echols' birthday) until Christmas Day at Skeleton Key Auctions. This item is a custom, acoustic guitar personalized by all current members of The Cure. You can register now for the auction.
Recently, the West Memphis Three website has released information about Arkansas Take Action. They are requesting letters to be mailed in from all over the world by people that want to see the exoneration of the innocent West Memphis Three. Scientific evidence PROVES beyond a reasonable doubt that they should never have been imprisoned. Yet, the ones that were proved to be at the scene of the crime are not behind bars. Please write a letter demanding they FREE THE WEST MEMPHIS THREE!
Anje and I read a lot of information about the recent updates to the case and actions available to the supporters. We also played some tunes by West Memphis Three supporters.
Please, if you need to make a year-end tax-deductible donation, please send it in for the West Memphis Three, and their Legal Defense Fund.
