Thanks to all for a successful 2016 Dinner

November 5, 2016 at 5:21 am (ALHR, Amnesty International, Capital Punishment, Death Penalty, Events, Stephen Keim, Uncategorized, World Anti-Death Penalty Day)

AACP would like to thank our keynote speaker, Julian McMahon, our MC, Stephen Keim, all our supporters, guests and volunteers for making this year’s dinner a success.  In a year where the global arc away from the death penalty has slowed, it is more important than ever for like-minded people to come together and make ourselves heard.
Special thanks to our partners, Australian Lawyers for Human Rights and Amnesty International and to Tony for these photos, and Tina, Elisa and Kellie for ensuring the night went off without a hitch.

World Day Against the Death Penalty Dinner

September 21, 2011 at 3:07 pm (Bali Nine, Capital Punishment, Stephen Keim, Upcoming Events, World Anti-Death Penalty Day) (, , )

On May 10, Australian Scott Rush’s death sentence was repealed and
Scott was sentenced to life imprisonment while the death sentences of
Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran were upheld. Although the news
of Scott repealed death sentence is a minor triumph for human rights, the
death penalty remains a haunting reality for others of the Bali Nine and
for the global community.
It is with this sentiment in mind that AACP and ALHR warmly invite you to
this year’s dinner in commemoration of the 9th World Day Against the
Death Penalty, this year themed “The Inhumanity of the Death Penalty”.
The Day is recognised globally as a reminder of the inhumanity of the
death penalty throughout the entire process, from sentence to execution.
We are delighted to announce that our guest speakers include Julian
Burnside QC and Lee and Christine Rush, with Stephen Keim SC as
MC.
We hope you can join us to mark this important human rights event.

Stephen Keim’s speech at AACP/ALHR screening of “Conviction”

April 21, 2011 at 8:39 am (ALHR, Capital Punishment, Conviction, Death Penalty, Events, Stephen Keim) (, , , )

Let me welcome you here on behalf of both Australians Against Capital Punishment and Australian Lawyers for Human Rights. This joint function builds on the very successful David Marr dinner that we held last year. I see a number of faces from last year’s function and a number of new faces. In both cases, your support for the very important causes pursued by each organisation does wonders for us both logistically and in terms of morale.

A number of you will be aware that AACP was founded largely through the efforts of Chris and Lee Rush. The arrest of their son, Scott, in Indonesia, and Scott’s subsequent trial, appeal and imposition of the death penalty, of course, raised their consciousness of the inhumanity and injustice of capital punishment as a tool of the law.

What is impressive and singular about Lee and Chris’s reaction is that have not restricted their efforts to trying to save the life of their son but have campaigned strenuously through AACP against capital punishment everywhere and at all times. We share their campaign. Read the rest of this entry »
