On the occasion of the 30 November, the day on which more than thousand cities celebrate the value of human life, the International Commission against the Death Penalty would like to add its voice to these celebrations, too. Cities for Life – Cities against the Death Penalty was initiated and is coordinated by the Community of St. Egidio. On this date, we commemorate the anniversary of the first official abolition of the death penalty, which took place in the Grand Duchy of Tuscany in 1786.
Since 2002 over 65 Capital cities have joined, and more 1,300 cities in 86 countries some of which still apply the death penalty: an important occasion for raising awareness and involving institutions in the quest for a judicial system that respects life.
