The Australian Government publicly opposes the death penalty and has agreed to support all applications for clemency from Australians on death row or those facing the death penalty.
The death penalty is the ultimate denial of human rights. It is a premeditated action of killing another human being. It violates that persons right to life as proclaimed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In opposing the death penalty, we mean no disrespect for the victims of violent crime and their relatives. We feel that there can never be any justification for torture or cruel treatment of another human being.
Please contact Minister Downer's office and voice your concerns!
