Second Strategy Meeting Launches "CCCADP" Last Night

A group of 20-25 concerned citizen activists met for 2 hours at Pearls Restaurant in Bronzeville yesterday to officially launch "Cook County Citizens Against The Death Penalty" (CCCADP). The first preliminary meeting took place on Saturday March 15th.

Bill "Dock" Walls, the organizer of this meeting, outlined the simple objective of this group: seek out as many qualified candidates for Cook County States Attorney who are committed to opposing to reestablishment of the death penalty in Illinois.

CCCADP is a non-political body. Each potential candidate for Cook County States Attorney will have his or her own platform to run upon. CCCADP is simply seeking to support best qualified candidate who is opposed to reinstituting the death penalty in Illinois.

Everyone in attendance exuded the spirit of "Peace Pilgrim":

The meeting was quite informative. It is the opinion of the International Stevenson Foundation that any canidate running for the office of Cook County States Attorney, must publically denounce the death penalty. We must also put out a call to action by the people of Cook County to join in on this very important discussion in choosing a canidate to make a successful run for the office in November. Contact all of your friends and organizations that you partner with to take a stand on this important issue. We must be in it to win it.

I agree completely and thank you for sharing your process. We here in California need to do the same things. Do you have the wording for your petition yet?

I want to hear the Presidental canidates on their views on legal murder.
