Come! Stand with us! Demand justice at the Crittenden County Courthouse

Arkansas supporters of the West Memphis Three will observe World Awareness Day by “Standing for Justice” at the Crittenden County Courthouse in Marion from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 2, 2007.
Supporters from everywhere in the world are invited.
Arkansas supporters are especially urged to come, to refute statements by officials that there is no support from within the state for the WM3.
The event will be dignified, simple and strong.
It will center on one 14-minute period, during which supporters will join hands and stand facing the courthouse in silence.
The 14 minutes signify the years that Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley, Jr., have spent in prison.
Our clasped hands signify our solidarity with them.
Our silent presence at this courthouse represents the enormity of the injustice that began in it.
An open-mic session will follow, during which supporters will have the opportunity to publicly state their concerns about this case. Comments will be limited to three minutes per person.
Car pools may be organized from various parts of Arkansas. Persons volunteering to drive or who need a ride are asked to email beth@arwar.org.
Remember that this region was traumatized by the murders of three children. Respect that.
This is a public demonstration, not a confrontation with individuals.
Damien, Jason and Jessie were convicted in Arkansas courts. They are held in Arkansas prisons.
On June 2, show your support for them in the district where this travesty occurred.
