Death Penalty Abolition Petition to the Australian Senate asking it to take action to promote the abolition of the death penalty in all cases everywhere and to save the lives of Australians and people of other nationalities facing execution in countries such as Indonesia.
Please print as many copies as you need and ask people in your parish, school, workplace, organisation and community to sign the petition. Please return all signed petitions to the address at the bottom of the petition by April 30.
The Catholic Justice & Peace Commission of Brisbane will hold a prayer vigil in support of all those on death row in Indonesia and in other parts of the world on Good Friday, 21 March, at 12 noon at Christ the King Catholic Church, Randolph Street, Graceville.
During the vigil, Lee and Chris Rush, parents of Scott Rush, who is still on death row in Indonesia, and Tanya Richards, Christian World Service Worker for Queensland Churches Together, who visited members of the Bali Nine on death row in Indonesia, will share their reflections on the plight of those who face the executioner.
All are welcome.
