The United Nations General Assembly has adopted a third resolution calling for a universal moratorium on the use of the death penalty. The result is that the Secretary-General is requested to report to the General Assembly at its sixty-seventh session on the implementation of this third resolution.

So while this isn't the perfect result we were hoping for, it represents significant progress. We can now see the beginnings of a genuine global movement towards abolition - and that can only be a good thing.

We'd like to congratulate everyone who was worked towards this and we hope for more good news in the future! Until then, the fight goes on...

And happy Holidays from everyone at poster for tomorrow.
