Last chance actions against the death penalty in Indonesia

Now that word has been hannded down that 9 prisoners, including Australians Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran will be executed as soon as Tuesday night.

We still have a chance to make our opposition known and to save the lives of these people and the fifty others facing the death penalty in Indonesia this year.

Since the executions resumed in January, there have been significant breakthroughs in the campaign in Indonesia – Garuda Air, the national airline, has refused to transport prisoners to the site of their executions, senior government figures and allies have started to speak out and the prospect of a future moratorium on capital punishment has been raised.

We are making a difference, and it is not yet too late to save these lives.
