Upcoming Events for the West Memphis Three

Michale Graves tours in support of Damien Echols

The West Memphis 3 -  Jessie Misskelley, Damien Echols and Jason Baldwin - Three teenagers imprisoned for crimes they did not commit and convicted of murder although there was no physical evidence, murder weapon, motive, or connection to the victims, have been in prison for over 11 years.   The prosecution pathetically presented black hair and clothing, heavy metal t-shirts, and Stephen King novels as proof that the murdered boys were sacrificed in a  satanic cult ritual.  Unfathomably, Echols was sentenced to death, Baldwin received life without parole, and Misskelley got life plus 40. This case is public at: http://www.wm3.org

Graves says, "It is my intent to reach out to as many people as I can, as so many others have in the past, using the media, the internet, spoken word, music and activism to give Damien's' words and story a greater chance of being heard and continue this fight for truth and justice where there has been none so far. I urge everyone to help, contribute and get involved in this anyway that they can."
