Gambians in Minnesota to Demonstrate at State Capitol Over Recent Prisoner Executions
Yahya Jammeh has vowed to execute all 47 death row prisoners by mid September
Please join your fellow Gambians, Senegalese and friends of the Gambia, in a mass demonstration to be held in St. Paul Minnesota on Monday, September 3rd, 2012, from 10.00am to 12.00pm CST. The address for the rally is: 75 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jnr. Blvd, St. Paul, Minnesota 55155.
The demonstration follows President Yahya Jammeh’s mass execution of death-row inmates in the Gambia by firing squad. Those murdered included two Senegalese nationals. The demonstration is to demand that Jammeh stop the impunity and the mass executions of death-row inmates. From 1994 to date, Gambians have witnessed nightmares of unleashed state terror; ranging from abductions, arbitrary arrests, killings and other human rights violations.
Please show up with your families and friends! Come and help protect the remaining lives on the verge of being executed by Yahya Jammeh. Remember the good old saying that the life you save might be your own.
For any further details, please contact the Minnesota State Capitol on Tel: 651-296-2881 for directions.
Thank you all for registering your presence in history. Please make sure there is no trash when you leave the venue.
May God bless ALL!! Amen!!
