ITALY. EASTER MARCH IN SUPPORT OF MORATORIUM OF EXECUTIONS TO BE ADOPTED BY THE UN
April 4, 2007: Hands off Cain and the Nonviolent Transnational Radical Party, with the patronage of the Mayor of Rome, and the National Association of Municipalities promote, together with the ComunitĂ di Sant'Egidio, a march in support of a moratorium of capital executions to be adopted by the current UN General Assembly.
The march will start on 8 April next at 10 o'clock (meeting time 9.30 am) from the Rome Capitol Hill and passing through the Quirinale, seat of the President of the Republic, will reach Saint Peter Square.
The initiative, through the participation of everyday citizens from all over the world present in Rome for the Ester festivities, aims at reinforcing the unanimous commitment of the Italian Parliament and Government to introduce a resolution calling for a moratorium of capital executions at the 2007 UN General Assembly that would establish a new human and civil right for humanity as a whole.
In support of the mobilization, the Leader of the Nonviolent Radical Party Marco Pannella has been on hunger strike since 21 March last. (Sources: Hands Off Cain, 04/04/2007)
