World Congress Against Death Penalty

Prachatai reports on the 5th World Congress Against the Death Penalty which took place in Madrid during June 12-15, 2013. The congress aimed to bring together intergovernmental, governmental and civil society leaders to come up with strategies for universal abolition of the death penalty. The congress was organized by Together Against the Death Penalty with sponsorship from the Spanish, Norwegian, French and Swiss governments.


Since 2007, Prachatai English has been covering underreported issues in Thailand, especially about democratization and human rights, despite the risk and pressure from the law and the authorities. However, with only 2 full-time reporters and increasing annual operating costs, keeping our work going is a challenge. Your support will ensure we stay a professional media source and be able to expand our team to meet the challenges and deliver timely and in-depth reporting.
