The Execution of David Lee Powell Press Conference, Part 1 of 4
David Powell is scheduled to be executed in exactly two weeks. I would like everyone to go to his website www.letdavidlive.org and offer any and all support that you can. I recently met with a member of David’s legal team and wrote an affidavit on his behalf, stating that David has been a mentor to many guys here. David has been locked up for 30 years and he has never had a major disciplinary case, nor has he had a single incident of conflict with another prisoner.Read More
Democrazy Now! On The day Of Reg´s Murder
My mind is in a very, very disturbed state. Reg was executed yesterday. I’m so upset that I can barely write.
I’m making myself though because everyone needs to know that Reg refused to participate in his own execution. I don’t know all of the details of what happened but I do know that Reg conducted a direct action demonstration that resulted in the riot team carrying him to the death van.Reg engaged in the righteous act of protesting his own execution. I do believe Justin Fuller was the last person to protest on his execution day. That was over 2 years ago. How many people have been executed since then? 70? 100?I’m not sure of the exact number, but I hope everyone truly understands and feels the significance of Reg’s honorable and life affirming actions yesterday. As I said, I’m quite upset right now, but I’ll write more soon …
With Strength and Love,
Mother of Reginald Blanton Speaking at Rally Sept 26, 2009 to Stop His Execution (Texas Capitol)
Reg Blanton is scheduled to be executed by the state of Texas in only two months, only 60 days.
If Reg is executed it will be a absolute travesty — more upsetting than any previous execution or possible future execution. I say this not simply because he is my comrade and friend, but from the perspective of Reg’s value to any environment he could be in, whether that be here, in general population with a Life sentence, or out in the free-world.
Reg is a person who constantly strives to uplift those around him and his environment as a whole. Not only does he strive to do so but he has the ability to do so. This is indeed a rare thing, especially in prison.
His actions are the result of a lifestyle, a lifestyle of social activism. All socially conscious individuals need to get involved in the fight to save his Life. One thing I’d like everyone to do is go to Reg’s MySpace (http://www.myspace.com/freereggieb) and see how you can help.Read More
Reginald Blanton’s Brother
I recently found out that my comrade and friend Reg Blanton received an execution date for October 27th 2009. He’s scheduled to be executed by the state of Texas in 3 months.This is an absolute travesty. I need to hold council with some people to see what all needs to be done. One thing is for sure though — everyone needs to get ready to do some serious organizing.

Monday Late Night
Today has been insane. I woke up early because the officer’s knocked on my cell door and told me that I was scheduled to go to recreation on the second round. I woke up, washed up and got ready forrec. My face looked better but the gash on my hand still looked bad.I put some medicine on both wounds, cleaned my cell up a little thenwent to rec. The officer’s put me on the outside rec. yard. A little while after I hit the yard I noticed several officer’s going in and out of D-section.
Then, Sgt.’s started rushing over there and pretty soon all of the ranking officers were onthe pod accompanied by psychiatric department staff and medical nurses. The Emergency Riot Team came on the pod next.Read More
