Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago: abolish the mandatory death penalty for all crimes

On 10 October 2013, the 11th World Day Against the Death Penalty is dedicated to the Greater Caribbean where few executions take place, but where a core of countries remain strongly opposed to abolition.

Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago are the only two countries that continue to hand down the mandatory death penalty for murder in the Caribbean.

Please sign also the petition calling on the Congress of Guatemala to abolish the death penalty.

This petition was delivered to:
  • The Governments of Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago
