I love Japan, not the death penalty
Have a good Christmas, stop executions in Japan says Claudio Giusti, international campaigner against the death penalty as he launches a new campain.
The Japanese Government has the habit of making executions without giving notice. Twice a year three or more inmates are sent to the gallows and their relatives are informed later. Very often this happens before the New Year holidays or in Summer. At the moment the Minister of Justice (an abolitionist) has been asked to sign warrants and permit several executions.
You can help to stop this!
We are asking you to send as many illustrated postcards as you can to the Chief Cabinet Secretary and to the Prime Minister with a brief abolitionist message. Be polite and remember that we love Japan. We cannot assure an happy ending, but this is one of those uncommon situations where pressure from abroad can help.
Write to the following addresses:
**Chief Cabinet Secretary**
Mr. Osamu Fujimura,
Shugiin Dai-ni Giin kaikan,
Nagata-cho 2-1-2, Chiyoda-ku,
Tokyo 100-8982, Japan
Mr. Yoshihiko Noda,
Shugiin Dai-ichi Giin kaikan,
Nagata-cho 2-2-1, Chiyoda-ku,
Tokyo 100-8981, Japan
