Capital punishment: the most deplorable form of deliberate murder

In commemoration of the International Day against the Death Penalty on October 10, I refer those who have not yet done so, to read Mansoor Hekmat's piece in opposition to what he calls the most deplorable form of deliberate murder. You can read the interview by clicking here.

I have just read that the US supreme court will soon decide on whether to ban execution by lethal injection if it is deemed to be 'cruel and unusual punishment'.

Of course its cruel and unusual but isn't that what the death penalty is?

A ban on lethal injections is clearly not enough.

It's not enough till the death penalty is banned everywhere.

On October 10, there are demonstrations across the world against this vile and inhuman state murder.

Join them.

George Bush would spend ten minutes reading the appeals of Death Row inmates.

The movement must grow beyond pacifists.

Communists against death penalty? Sound like ‘Islamists for democratic reform’.
