Fw: Death Penalty Protest Footage for Documentary
- Does anyone have any film footage of anti-death penalty demonstrations they
might share with the filmmaker whose message I'm forwarding below? Please
contact Tania van Bergen at TaniavanB@... if you
Please DO NOT forward this info to me, as I am still trying to wade through
more than 2,000 messages I received yesterday when I got my tx3 service
Thanks for your help.
