OUR ARGUMENTS 

Why does the death penalty not protect you?

 

Give a dog a bad name and hang him! The death penalty is not used to protect society from repeat offender child-molesting monsters. Death row is mainly occupied by people whose lives were considered to be worthless in the eyes of their judges because of poverty, discrimination or political machinations.

Opposing the death penalty means saying no to State murders, no to torture. It means retaining our humanity and our dignity in the face of barbarity!

20,000 people are rotting on death row and more than 1,600 were executed in 20151. These figures do not include death sentences in North Korea or China, about which we do not have sufficient information. However, it is considered that 5,000 people are executed every year just in the People’s Republic of China.
