This poster tries to convey the stark, black and white choice when it comes to the death penalty. For me there is no question - I believe that legalised killing demeans all of us, where ever it occurs.

Death is not justice

Our 2010 project asked for the universal abolition of the death penalty.
For us it’s simple. The death penalty is a violation of human rights. Article 5 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states: “No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.” How does that fit with beheading, stoning, hanging, lethally injecting or shooting someone?
