Petition against the Death Penalty- Pl sign and share widely


39 nations have already abolished the death penalty. In December 2012, the United Nations‘ General Assembly will vote on a resolution calling for a worldwide halt to its use.

We, the undersigned, in recognition of the five million people who signed the moratorium petition that was handed to the United Nations’ General Assembly in 2007, promoted by the Community of Sant’Egidio in collaboration with Amnesty International and other organizations all over the world, renew the call 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

We welcome the strong progress already made towards a global end to capital punishment and acknowledge that 139 nations have abolished the death penalty in law or practice.

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, the undersigned, 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!

    Life is a gift of nature. Nature is Supreme. Man is grappling to find the secrets of Nature.

    Yes, Evil events occur. Humans are driven to the extreme act of murder for personal & political purposes. The Act of Killing a fellow human is a dastardly act.

    The State is nothing but a Collection of individuals.

    The State as a punishment sentences the criminal to Death. Therefore the State is also committing the same Dastardly Act.

    Let us en devour to understand each other and Nature.

    Peace and Equality. Stop the Death Sentence.
