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On May 10, Australian Scott Rush’s death sentence was repealed and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of Scott repealed death sentence is a minor triumph for human rights, the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.

Melbourne rally protests death penalty – AAP

October 12, 2009 at 12:23 am (Bali Nine, Capital Punishment, Death Penalty, World Anti-Death Penalty Day) (, , , , , )

GREG ROBERTS October 10, 2009 – 3:04PM

AAP

Anyone who thinks the death penalty does not affect Australians need only look next door to Bali, where three Australians are on death row, a rally has heard.

The death penalty should be outlawed around the world as slavery and child labour have been, the Melbourne rally heard on Saturday, the seventh World Day Against the Death Penalty.

An estimated 2,000 people heard barrister Julian Burnside, who is representing two convicted Australian drug traffickers in Bali, say capital punishment is "state sanctioned violence".

"Execution is premeditated, ritualised, state-sanctioned violence by brutalised societies," he told AAP.

"There is no crime no matter how terrible that could not be properly punished by decades in a cell." Read the rest of this entry »
