Save Australians on death row in Indonesia – Amnesty International

May 7, 2013 at 12:29 am (Amnesty International, Bali Nine, Death Penalty, petitions, Take Action) (, )

Update 6 May 2013: Foreign Minister Bob Carr’s office has made public statements urging Indonesia to grant clemency to Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran, and pledging to raise the issue again with the Indonesian Government. This is great news and we welcome Senator Carr’s statements.

It’s vital that our Government continues working through all possible means for clemency for Andrew and Myuran, and to promote the abolishment of the death penalty in our region. So we need to keep up the messages to Bob Carr and Julia Gillard, and show them that public support for this is not going away.

Send our Foreign Minister and Prime Minister a message now

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 »
