AACP held a vigil at Queen’s Park on December 15th for those on death row around the world. About 50 people turned up to hear our choirs and speakers, as well as the message sent from Christine and Lee Rush about their ordeal as parents of someone facing execution.

The vigil was designed to reach out to the Christmas shoppers through music and spectacle, and remind them of the fate of too many people around the world.
