SAVE GARY GRAHAM (SHAKA SANKOFA): SCHEDULED TO BE EXECUTED ON JUNE 22

Moviment Graffitti joins millions from around the world to appeal against
the U.S. state murder of Gary Graham, scheduled to take place on June 22
2000.

Gary Graham (Shaka Sankofa),  has been segregated on Texas Death Row for 19
years and, considering that his present age is 36, it is immediately obvious
that he has spent on death row the longest part of his life. Sankofa was
just 17 years old when he was arrested and charged with capital murder--a
violation of many international laws that no one under 18 should be
sentenced to death.

Since he was arrested in 1981, Sankofa has steadfastly proclaimed his
innocence of the murder of Bobby Lambert outside a grocery store. His case
garnered national and international support in the early 1990s. That's when
Sankofa finally received adequate legal representation. Investigators
uncovered what Houston police and Sankofa's original lawyer never did--that
ballistics evidence proved his gun was not used in the murder. They also
found that Lambert was a known drug dealer and gunrunner and was set for
trial in Oklahoma. Most important, six eyewitnesses agreed that Sankofa was
not the killer.

To this day, no court has ever heard all this new information that was
uncovered a decade after Sankofa was sent to death row. Republican
presidential candidate Bush who signed his death warrant, has already
“killed” a mentally ill man, a battered woman and  a person who was a
juvenile at the time of his arrest. Bush has 128 executions under his belt
and 20 more scheduled for this year.
