Online petition from Amnesty – Stop Child Executions!

November 10, 2009 at 11:44 pm (Amnesty International, Capital Punishment, Death Penalty, petitions) (, , )

No child should be sentenced to death. And no mother should go through the anguish of burying a child who has been executed.

The international Convention on the Rights of the Child is 20 years old this year. To celebrate the convention, we’re calling on those countries that still executed children in the last year – Saudi Arabia, Iran, Yemen and Sudan – to end all executions of juveniles.

At this crucial time, Australians are joining citizens around the world calling for change. Every voice, every name, counts — for every child’s human rights.

Add your name to end child executions
