In Belgium, due to the terrorist attacks that occurred in Brussels and Paris, 7 in 10 people considered reinstalling the death penalty for terrorists. Amnesty International Belgique francophone couldn’t let this happen. For Amnesty the death penalty is never an option, regardless of who is accused. It is cruel, inhuman, degrading and a clear violation of human rights.
That’s why on the world day against the death penalty Amnesty launched 'The Death Penalty Test’. A website where people can condemn different characters to death by just clicking ‘yes’ or ‘no’. The campaign started a heated debate on social media. In the end everyone realised that reinstalling the death penalty is not as evident as they thought it was.
