Five men face imminent execution in Arkansas - two could be killed tomorrow. Some good news: three of the eight men facing execution in the state's 'assembly line' on death row have had their executions stayed, temporarily. Time to keep up the pressure. Keep emailing the governor to stop the executions altogether!

Arkansas is planning to execute 8 men in 10 days - because its supply of a drug used in lethal injections expires at the end of the month. Treating prisoners lives as if they were products with a ‘use by’ date is horrific. Tell the state governor to stop the executions.
