A number of us were in line for yesterday for the Austin Film Festival when these protesters marched against capital punishment on Congress. The gentleman in the foreground was passing out stickers that said 'Democrat for Life.' Sounded a little ambiguous to us out of context but clear during the brief march. Good for these people for being against this punishment, but I hope they take their cause through the system to try to change our laws (in Texas it will probably have to be a Constitutional Amendment) instead of just doing an outcry against public officials administering our policy and juries and judges who impose the sentence.
