Your abolition wardrobe is now available via the web, thanks to Bexley’s own national crusader for alternatives to the death penalty, Abe Bonowitz. His catalog of T-shirts, caps, buttons and bumper stickers can be found on the website for his organization, Citizens United for Alternative to the Death Penalty, Prices are very reasonable and may help the organization stay alive. If you are in the Cleveland area, you may have seen the story and photo about Abolition-Wear in the June 9 Cleveland Plain Dealer Sunday Magazine. Their photo caption read, “Order your fashion statement before Ohio’s next execution on August 27.” Please help Abe gather original copies of the CPD Sunday Magazine: Send to: CUADP, PMB 297, 177 US Highway #1, Tequesta, FL 33469.

Abe’s group is also heading up the 6th Annual Fast & Vigil to ABOLISH THE DEATH PENALTY June 29 -July 2 or as it is better known, “Starvin’ for Justice 2002.” Activists all over the world will fast in solidarity with those serving time on death row. If your group would like to sponsor this event see We also wish Abe luck in court on June 28 for his arrest. He is one of the Supreme Court Seven who unfurled a banner on the steps of the Court in Washington D.C. to mark the January 17 shooting execution of Gary Gilmore.
