Protest for Rodney Reed in Berlin

Supporters of Rodney Reed have organized a protest in Berlin! On Sunday, March 1, take a stand for Rodney at the US Embassy in Pariser Platz at 15:00. The German language announcement can be read in full here. As the organizers say:

No state has the right to kill people , not by the military, the police nor thedeath penalty! That is why we say : #dontshoot #wecantbreathe and do away with the death penalty !

A German translation of  Jordan Smith’s excellent article “Is Texas Getting Ready to Execute an Innocent Man?”  is available here  from Indymedia.
