Arkansas Take Action Now: Free the West Memphis 3

We were in Little Rock, Arkansas, at Oyster's Bar and Grill, late February for Arkansas Take Action Now's rally in support of the West Memphis 3.

Despite new evidence and old evidence that in no way links them to the victims, Steve Branch, Christopher Byers, and Michael Moore, who were killed in Robin Hills in 1993, or the scene of the crime, the coined, 'Memphis 3" have not been able to get a retrial. The first trial, in which they were convicted, was even highly mishandled.  

Damien Nichols, who has been on Death Row for 17 years and Jason Baldwin and Jesse Misskelley whom are serving life, have been getting support over the years by concerned local citizens, Arkansas Take Action Now, and entertainers and celebrities like Johnny Depp and the Dixie Chicks whom have either used their status to raise awareness, monetarily contributed, raising money to get the new DNA testing, or helped to push this thing back into court and get the Memphis 3 another trial, a fair trial, for the justice of the Three and the three victims and their families.
