Die Todesstrafe ist keine angemessene Antwort auf Mord und Kriminalität. Wo sich der Staat zum Richter über Leben und Tod aufschwingt, nimmt nicht Gerechtigkeit ihren Lauf, sondern Rache und Vergeltung.

Die Botschaft von Amnesty International lautet deshalb unmissverständlich: Staaten können nicht gleichzeitig die Menschenrechte achten und die Todesstrafe verhängen und vollstrecken.

Aus diesem Grund setzt sich Amnesty International seit über 30 Jahren gegen diese Strafe ein. Und dies mit zunehmendem Erfolg: Immer mehr Staaten schaffen diese Strafe ab. Dennoch bleibt noch viel zu tun, Jahr für Jahr werden tausende Menschen hingerichtet. (Amnesty International)

 Mark Duane EDWARDS Jr. is scheduled to be executed in Pennsylvania on January 13th, 2014

I do not know if there’s a file to the Board of Pardons ($25.00 filing fee, life or Death sentence cases require a unanimous vote by the Board to be recommended to the Governor …  there’s little hope that Gov. Corbett will show clemency to Edwards (Mumia gag rule) – but I hope there will be a stay  by the court (see  Lethal injection – secrecy – filing to the court –  support by Governor elect Wolf (moratorium?)  – but I am not familiar with PA living in Austria) – Find enclosed a few information from the internet. I hope there will be information e.g.  Pennsylvanians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty

 


 

URGENT PETITION TO STOP UGANDAN LESBIAN JUDITH’S DEPORTATION ON MONDAY 08/12/2014

Th3 UK Government says, “We don’t deport LGBT asylum seekers and we never will”. Is that a lie? A New EU ruling should protect Judith. Let’s stop her Deportation NOW!

Judith Twiith Twikireze is on a Fast Track process to deportation, with a ticket booked by the Home Office for December 08. The LGBT community is outraged by her inhumane treatment and the fact that the UK is sending her back to certain persecution and possible death.

Stop the execution of Leon Taylor on Nov. 19th, 2014

Stop the execution of Leon Taylor on Nov. 19th, 2014

 

Dear Governor,

Leon Taylor, a 56-year-old man, is scheduled to be executed in Missouri on 19 November. He was convicted in 1995 of a murder committed in 1994. There are serious questions about the role of race in his case.

Leon Vincent Taylor was convicted of the first-degree murder of Robert Newton  who was shot dead on 14 April 1994 during a robbery of the petrol station he ran in Independence, Missouri. After the jury was unable to agree on what punishment he should receive, the judge sentenced him to death finding that the aggravating circumstances warranted it. However, in 1997, the Missouri Supreme Court ruled that there should be a new sentencing due to improper final arguments by the prosecutor. At the new sentencing in 1999, the jury unanimously voted for death.

I do not downplay the seriousness of the crime of Mr. Leon Taylor and the suffering he caused. Please stop the execution of Mr. Taylor and commute his death sentence to life without parole.

Sincerely,

Amnesty International News – Wegen friedlichem Protest verhaftet und gefoltert

Dilorom Abdukadirova wurde festgenommen, weil sie sich im Mai 2005 wie tausende andere an Protesten gegen die desolate wirtschaftliche Lage in Usbekistan beteiligt hat. In Haft wurde sie offensichtlich gefoltert und in einem unfairen Gerichtsverfahren wegen „versuchten Umsturzes der verfassungsmäßigen Ordnung“ zu zehn Jahren Haft verurteilt. In einem weiteren Prozess wurde die Haftstrafe auf 18 Jahre ausgeweitet, weil sie angeblich gegen Gefängnisregeln verstoßen hatte.

 


 

Justice For Billy Kuenzel

On September 12th, the state of Alabama announced its new „lethal injection cocktail“. In addition came the call for 9 inmates to be executed by this method. One of these inmates is William „Billy“ Kuenzel who is situated on Death Row at Holman Correctional Facility. This announcement was made despite the controversy surrounding his case and the fact he currently has a petition under review by the Court.
