139 nations have already abolished the death penalty in law or in practice. In December 2012, the United National General Assembly will vote on a resolution calling for a worldwide halt to its use.
Please sign the petition calling for a worldwide moratorium on sentences and executions with a view to abolishing the death penalty worldwide in the belief that this penalty is inhumane:
* Whatever the method of execution, there is no humane way to kill
* Whatever the country, death row is inhumane
* Whatever the length, awaiting death dehumanizes people sentenced to death
For the 4th vote of the United Nations General Assembly on a moratorium on the use of the death penalty, to be held in December 2012, we call on all countries to support the resolution and all those which retain the death penalty to establish a moratorium on its use, with a view to abolishing this inhumane practice altogether!
*petition has been submitted.*
