Today is World Day Against the Death Penalty.
Sobering. Singapore hangs an average of 2 persons per month.
Mainly drug traffickers.
Of course, criminals need to be punished.
Longer prison terms and rehabilitation.
Killing them off – No; Not Again; Never Again.
Abolish the Death Penalty.
MARUAH shares this video message in solidarity with lawyers who work hard to defend clients facing the Death Penalty, all activists who are lobbying against the death penalty, especially those in Singapore Anti-Death Penalty Campaign and for each of them who was hanged to death.
MARUAH Secretariat, 10th October 2010.
