HANDS OFF CAIN*
Hands Off Cain is a league of citizens and parliamentarians for the abolition of death penalty worldwide by 2000. It is a nonprofit organization with a direct or federate adhesion, founded in Brussels, at the European Parliament in 1993.
It leads a worldwide campaign with much focus located in Parliaments of different countries. Usually all campaigns against death penalty try to save an innocent person from execution, or to address a highly emotional case; Hands Off Cain wants to reach all international laws and constitutions in an effort to abolish all penalties of death. The principle they want to establish is: no state may dispose of the lives of its citizens by having its laws impose the death penalty for crimes, even very serious ones.
Hands Off Cain can be found on the Internet at its official site both in Italian and English.
