The need to educate the public regarding the death penalty cannot be separated from the role of the media as a medium in conveying the facts that occur in the death penalty process. That is why, KontraS and ECPM have developed training activities that focus on educating media houses and their journalists to write on the death penalty and also on how to cooperate with them when conducting any campaigns on the topic. The activity lasted for one day on November 4 with participants from the highest death row areas in Indonesia, namely North Sumatra, West Java, Central Java, South Sumatra, and DKI Jakarta.
