Idaho made a big impression with a 50-foot banner displayed across the steps of the Idaho Statehouse calling for the end of the death penalty. They write, “For the second year in a row, the Idaho Peace Coalition and Idaho Campaign Nonviolence conducted a mindful walk to end the death penalty in Idaho. The silent walk, in the tradition of Thich Nath Hanh, circled around the Idaho State Capital, was held as an appeal to Idaho citizens, the Governor and the Idaho Legislature to end the death penalty which affects not only the family of the person executed but the families of the persons who conduct the execution as well.”
