Campaign to abolish the death penalty and to defend the right to life as an absolute right
Foreword : International Diplomatic Network of International Law and Human Rights in the Kingdom of Norway believes that the death penalty is the greatest violation of human right in this life. The continued practice of this penalty and its existence in this world is a rumination of past legislations which present a source of fear and anxiety that our world is not safe because of the culture of violence and revenge instead of a culture of understanding and reform…
Meaning of death penalty and results of its practice :
The implementation of death penalty means killing someone in order of punishment or general deterrence and prevention. Crimes that lead to this penalty are called criminal penalties. It was implemented in all communities except those which have laws derived from the formal legislation of the state that prevent this penalty.
This penalty is a contentious issue which exists in many countries, and attitudes could change in every political doctrine or cultural scale. There is a great exception for Europe where the second article of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union prevents applying this penalty. Today, Amnesty International considers that the most countries are for repealing this penalty which has allowed the United Nations from issuing a decision that cancels the death penalty. But, more than 60% of the world’s population live in countries that apply this penalty. Nowadays, we are living in world that applies the death penalty not only for adults but also in some countries the death penalty was executed against minors. Many countries adhere to implementing this judgment on humanitarian.
In this world, we are in the framework of human rights organizations and as international human rights activists, we call the whole world to stand against the death penalty and to restore the right of life for human who is threatened by it for any moment.
When this right becomes protected, we will make this world a safe place for mankind as a whole. For that, our attitude should continue thanks to its believers and together we must prove to this world that activists will face anyone who tries to violate the human rights.
