Don't send Hakamada back to death row

Hakamada Iwao's freedom is hard-won, but it could be lost at any moment. After 46 years on Japan's death row, he was freed in March and granted a retrial based on new DNA evidence that could prove his innocence.

Now prosecutors are appealing his retrial - they want to send the 78-year-old back to death row. Ask them to drop the appeal.
