Default Woman about to be stoned to death,please sign petition!

So for gods sakes sign this and lets stop it from happening!


************************************************** ***********

AMINA LAWAL SET TO BE STONED

The Nigerian Supreme Court has upheld the death sentence for Amina Lawal, condemned for the crime of adultery on August 19th 2002, to be buried up to her neck and stoned to death. Her death was postponed so that she could continue to nurse her baby. Hearing on her Execution is now set for 25 SEPTEMBER 2003.

THATS TOMORROW!

If you haven't been following this case, you might like to know that Amina's baby is regarded as the 'evidence' of her adultery. Amina's case is being handled by the Spanish branch of Amnesty International, which is attempting to put together enough signatures to make the Nigerian government rescind the death sentence. A similar campaign saved another Nigerian woman, Safiya, condemned in similar circumstances. By March 4th the petition had amassed over 2,600,000 signatures. It will only take you a few seconds to sign Amnesty's online petition. Please sign the petition now.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note,it has now been moved to the 27th september because of not enough tribunal members.


'pologies if it's been posted already.

Post it on as many msg boards you go on as possible,folks,I can't believe they're really going through with it.

The baby will be motherless,the mother will have a slow painful death-why? because she gave brth to a baby and her husband was allegedly impotent,they didn't even do a DNA test!

I've signed it too, but left the email address field blank.

Who exactly benefits from Amina Lawal being stoned to death anyway?

Both Mrs W/L and I have signed up giving real names but a "nospam" email address.

No country can call itself civilised if it tolerates such barbaric and unjust punishment.
