Idahoans Stand Against the Death Penalty

Posted by Erin Bechtol

by Cathy Schwinden  // Part of the Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions 

Every Wednesday, Idahoan’s Against the Death Penalty appear on corner of 8th street & Bannock in front of the ‘Old’ Post Office to remind Fellow Idahoans that the Death Penalty continues to be applied in Idaho. This fact makes Every Taxpayer Culpable; does it not?  To make claims for the Sanctity of Life and  maintain our desire to prevent Cruel and Unusual Punishment, OUR Society must stop ‘Legal’ Murders including those perpetrated during war making activities; most especially the deaths of wholly innocent Children, Women and Men who become ‘Collateral Damage’. Rabbi Abraham Joshua Herschel says it best: “Not all of us are guilty, but we are All Responsible.”

On Friday 21 September Idaho Peace Coalition, Catholics, Protestants, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, and The Snake River Alliance stood at the ‘Old’ Post Office in Boise for a Vigil Honoring the International Day of Peace and Campaign Non Violence Idaho 2018. For many years we have worked diligently to exhibit non violent traits and behaviors in our own lives. Our Volunteers have sponsored speakers, exhibited films, put together rallies, marches and peaceable protests. Our Goal is to Educate Ourselves about Alternatives to War and Violence in Resolving Conflict in our Community the USA and the World. We are undeterred! We will never give up! We are proud of what we do! Peace, Love and Blessings in Solidarity from the ‘Peace-nicks’ in Idaho.
