On December 13, 2005, the state of California will decide whether to execute Stanley "Tookie" Williams, or to grant him clemency. We urge Mexicanos, Hispanics and Latinos to pray for the life of Mr. Williams. My husband, Ramiro "Ramsey" Muniz, Mexicano political prisoner, has actively sent letters requesting that the life of Mr. Williams be spared. He has been holding daily prayer meetings among political prisoners for the life of Mr. Williams.
We recognize and thank individuals and groups including the Reverend Jesse Jackson, Bianca Jagger, the NAACP, Mike Farrell, Snoop Dogg, and William’s attorney, Peter Fleming, Jr. of New York.
Mr. Williams has written nine books that warn children not to join gangs. Supporters worldwide have nominated Mr. Williams for the Nobel Peace Prize five times. The nomination speaks of the reformed character of Stanley "Tookie" Williams.
