Say NO to the death penalty

Today October 10th, 2008, the 6th World Day against the Death Penalty takes place.

Every year responding to the World Coalition Against the Death Penalty’s appeal, citizens, national and international institutions and NGOs rally together on 10 October to oppose the use of the death penalty and to recall that its abolition is a universal struggle.

On this day, the World Coalition Against the Death Penalty calls on all citizens around the world to take action to end executions in Asia.

There were at least 1,252 known executions in 24 countries during 2007. Of all the executions in 2007, 88% took place in China, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and the US.
