#JuntosPorLosNiños: World Day against the Death Penalty

On 10 October 2019, 17th World Day against the Death Penalty, and coinciding with the 30 years of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, we joined efforts with the embassies of Belgium, New Zealand and United Kingdom, the European Commission in Spain and the International Commission against the death penalty (ICDP). We launched a joint statement to give voice to the invisible victims of capital punishment: the children.
