Antoinette Chahine Former Lebanese death row prisoner
“ECPM is a ray of hope shining in all prison cells. What ECPM does in Arab countries is amazing. Without the serious human support of ECPM, I would not be able to pursue my fight against the death penalty and my defence of human rights in the world in such an active and authentic way. And the most important for me is that I believe that ECPM contributes to saving lives and defending human rights throughout the world.”
Mairead Maguire Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, 1976
“I can’t imagine anything more important than working to save lives. I completely support your fight to abolish the death penalty.”
Robert Badinter Honorary President of ECPM
“In revolutionary times and during the reconstitution of a State of Law, ECPM is calling upon political leaders so that we may have a bright new future by abolishing capital punishment. ECPM can therefore be found everywhere where the death penalty is still prevalent or remains a part of legal texts. ”
Shirin Ebadi Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, 2003
“I am convinced that the actions carried out by ECPM contribute to creating a better world founded on values of peace, freedom, human dignity and social justice.”

ECPM needs you!
The fight for universal abolition is in motion, but many obstacles remain. To face them, ECPM works closely with various institutions, from schools to major international bodies.
The money received through donations to ECPM is used to run our organisation. It allows us to hire professionals whose job is to train, plead and unite people around the value of justice that is the abolition of the death penalty. This money allows us to organise free training courses in schools, focusing on human rights and the death penalty; it also allows us to create educational tools which are then put at teachers’ disposal. Furthermore, it helps us to lead support campaigns, like the one we implemented around Serge Atlaoui. Finally, it will make it easier for us to organise fact-finding missions and to publish their results, such as our annual report on the death penalty in Iran.
Donating to ECPM is a way of helping us to promote the choice of a society based on non-violence. It’s demanding abolition, now!
Donating money to ECPM entitles you to a 66% tax deduction within the 20% limit of your taxable income. In the case where the funds collected exceed our needs, ECPM may allocate them to missions which it judges to be a priority and which have the same finality.
