Building Bridges: Your Community and Labor Report
                       National Edition
         Produced by Ken Nash and Mimi Rosenberg
****************

Do you know what it says on the death certificate for anyone who’s executed?
with
Stephen Bright, President and Senior Counsel of the Southern Center for
Human Rights, law professor who twice argued and won cases before the
United States Supreme Court, involving racial composition of the juries.  He
has testified on many occasions before committees of both the U.S. Senate
and House of Representatives. His and the Center's work has been the
subject of a documentary film, "Finding for Life in the Death Belt", and two
books, "Proximity to Death" and "Finding Life on Death Row".

When they say cause of death, do you know what the word is? “It’s homicide”. Homicide!  
It certainly felt like murder watching the TroyDavis hashtag tick away the last
minutes of a man’s life. The death penalty is the ultimate denial of human rights.
It is the premeditated and cold-blooded killing of a human being by the state.  
While, this cruel, inhuman and degrading punishment is done in the name of
justice it violates the right to life as proclaimed in the Universal Declaration of
Human Rights.  Building Bridges opposes the death penalty in all cases without exception regardless of the nature of the crime, the characteristics of the
offender, or the method used by the state to kill the prisoner.  This show,
in memoriam of Troy Davis (9/21/2011), Stan “Tookie” Williams, (12/13/2005),
Dominque Green (10/26/2004), and Gary Graham a/k/a Shaka Sankofa
(6,22/2000) to name but a few victims of state executions, Stephen Bright
makes the case for abolishing the death penalty.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
