Benjamin Cole “Don’t Kill For Me’ Demonstration – Oct. 20

On Thursday, October 20, the Oklahoma Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty (OK-CADP) asks the public to join them at the Benjamin Cole  “Don’t Kill for Me” demonstration in protest of his scheduled execution that morning at 10 a.m. The demonstration will begin at 9 a.m. in front of the Governor’s Mansion, at 820 NE 23rd Street at Phillips Avenue.

Participants will begin a silent vigil at 10:00 a.m. until notice of a stay of execution is received or the execution is carried out.  The vigil will conclude with a circle prayer. The vigil will be canceled if the execution is postponed.
