Tuesday 10th October 2017 will mark the 15th World Day Against the Death Penalty. Reprieve Australia invites you to commemorate this event.
Reprieve Australia works to end the death-penalty focussing our efforts on Asia and the USA.
This year, we will gather for 30 minutes at 9.00am on 10 October in the forecourt of the County Court of Victoria.
We are honoured to have former Chief County Court Judge Michael Rozenes AO launch our event. He will unveil a simple but challenging artwork on our behalf. We will also be joined by Parvais Jabbar MBE and Saul Lehrfreund MBE, directors of the Death Penalty Project in London, who will speak about their work fighting the death penalty around the world. The Lord Mayor of Melbourne Robert Doyle AC will also speak on his personal reflections of this issue. Our Vice-President Alexandra Wilson will speak about the important work that Reprieve is doing.
This is a free event organised for the legal community.
