URGENT NON VIOLENT INITIATIVE FOR THE UN MORATORIUM ON CAPITAL PUNISHMENT!
The 62nd UN General Assembly opens September 24th. According to a Government communication dated September 11, from the co-meeting of the Foreign Affairs Commission of the Parliament and the Senate, the pro-Moratorium Resolution will be presented to the UN at the ministerial meeting the day after, September 25th.
The Radicals, however, have not forgotten that in 14 years the approval of the Resolution has been compromised three times by the mistakes and delays, if not the outright ostracising behaviour, of European Governments and, above all, by the Council bureaucracy in Brussels. For more than a decade this bureaucracy has impeded the UN General Assembly voting to approve the Universal Moratorium on capital punishment, where member nations still using the death penalty have been reduced to a fifth.
To achieve the presentation of the Resolution for the Moratorium (again for emphasis: moratorium on the death penalty, not abolition) at the opening of the General Assembly on September 24th, right now – and more than ever before – it is necessary to strengthen our non violent movement. This initiative comprises the hunger strike on September 2nd of Marco Pannella, Lucio Bertè, Guido Biancardi, Sergio D'Elia, Marco Perduca, Michele Rana, Alessandro Rosasco, Antonio Stango, Claudia Sterzi, Valter Vecellio e Dominique Velati (which many other people have joined), and also the extraordinary number of people who have become members to show their support. Becoming a member is a vital part of the non violent action for supporting the Radical Party and Hands Off Cain.
