Community of Sant'Egidio
The Augustinians join the Community of Sant’Egidio in the research of funds for the legal counsel of Dominique Green.
The community of Sant'Egidio has long been active in trying to abolish the death penalty throughout the world. They are a reputable and trustworthy group whose intervention on behalf of the Nigerian woman condemned to death by stoning helped to spare her from that gruesome death sentence. I have visited their center in Rome and met Carlo Santoro, with whom I keep in touch. I offer the following information from their website to anyone who is committed to the abolition of the death penalty and wants to participate in a concrete means of supporting the Sant'Egidio campaign. For more details, visit their website in English: NO to the Death penalty - Community of Sant'Egidio.

Here is the information about their present campaign:
Dominique Green is 28 years old.
He is African-American.
He is poor.
He has been condemned to death.
He is the first death-row inmate we have gotten to know, the first of many friends.
We want to save his life.
Help us to help Dominique, help us stop the death penalty.
A euro, a dollar...ten euro, ten dollars for Dominique's defense doesn't cost you much. But it will do a lot to help give life and justice one more chance.
