The time for the West Memphis Three rally is 11 a.m. Wednesday at the Capitol.
Community leaders and concerned citizens will gather at 11 a.m. Wednesday morning at the Arkansas Vietnam Veterans Memorial and unfurl a large banner with thousands of postcards from people around the world who support the West Memphis Three. At noon, they will arrive at the front steps of the State Capitol for a rally urging Governor Mike Beebe and Attorney General Dustin McDaniel to help overturn the convictions. After the rally, hundreds of letters and petitions will be delivered to Beebe’s office. Dixie Chicks lead singer Natalie Maines will speak at the rally, engage in a brief Q&A and help deliver the letters and petitions to Beebe.
