Death row
Death row

At Amnesty International, we firmly believe that no one – including any government – has the right to take away someone else’s life.

We oppose the use of the death penalty in every single case. No matter what the crime, who the alleged criminal is, or the method proposed to execute them – we will always stand against it.

We’re working to end the use of the death penalty around the world, and won’t stop until every country in the world has abolished it.
