Since 2000, Together against the Death Penalty (Ensemble contre la peine de mort - ECPM) acts to fight against the death penalty around the world. The association promotes the universal abolition through the creation and dissemination of publications and teaching tools, as part of public campaigns and lobbies governments at both national and international levels. ECPM is supported by many public figures (Robert Badinter, Corinne Lepage, ChristianeTaubira ...).
ECPM has been working for the past 10 years with the victims of capital punishment: death row inmates, former death row prisoners released, families of prisoners, families of victims of murder, and terrorism, people from the "killing machine" - doctors , psychologists, prison guards, lawyers: all of their personal experience, can help to become aware of the extent of the cruelty of the death penalty.
We work in France around the citizen mobilization (petitions "no gays on the scaffold," and "No to the execution of minors!") new generation mobilization (through our educational program in schools) and around campaigns in particular during the World Day against the death penalty, every October 10.
From death row, ECPM committed by producing fact-finding missions, relaying aid needs and the reality on death row, denouncing through its campaigns, emblematic cases of the abolitionist cause: through international mobilization campaign, legal assistance, diplomatic support.
