Australians Against Capital Punishment; Australian Lawyers for Human Rights and Reprieve Australia warmly invite you to this year’s dinner in commemoration of the 13th World Day Against the Death Penalty.

This year’s theme is raising awareness around the application of the death penalty for drug-related offences.

This day is recognised globally as a reminder of the inhumanity of the death penalty from sentence to execution.

We are delighted to announce that our guest speakers include:

Philip Ruddock, former Attorney-General, member for Berowra and long-time Parliamentary campaigner against the death penalty
Julian P McMahon, experienced member of the Victorian criminal bar who acted for Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran during their long ordeal;
Stephen Keim SC as MC.
