2) Come to our vigil
We will hold a vigil on Nov 3rd from 11:30am to 1:00 pm in front of the county courthouse (Birmingham) at Arrington & Woods, N. The vigil will happen even if - as we hope - the killing does not. If the state does kill Mr Arthur we will hold a short requiem vigil at 5:55pm at Dr. King's statue in Kelly Ingram Park, because Alabama kills at 6:00 pm.
