|Troy Davis and his mother|
The rape of the Earth by hydrofracking is another violence which pervades our world and must be stopped. Capital punishment and environmental destruction are related. Our belief in the sacredness of all life touches both the execution of a human being and the killing of the environment, human beings, and animals with toxic chemicals. We are putting toxic fluids into the Earth just as lethal fluids were injected into the arm of Troy Davis on September 21, 2011.
Amy Goodman of Democracy Now covered the execution of Troy Davis live, the only media to do so. Go to www.democracynow.org for more on this tragic killing.
Our hearts go out to the family of Mark MacPhail, the young man who was killed in 1989. We also pray for the family of Troy Davis who have suffered, too.
