Hanging

Method of execution still used in 40 countries and as sole method in 18 countries .... may be the number is lesser now.

who doesn’t know about Iran which leads the world in juvenile executions ???
who doesn’t remember Mahmoud Asgari and Ayaz Marhoni, the 2 boys who were hanged in public in 2005 just because they have had a gay relationship ???
who doesn’t remember Saddam ???
Pakistan has more prisoners on the row than USA.

But many people don’t know this is actually the only method of execution in Japan.
Japan and USA are the only developed and democratic countries to retain the death penalty.

i have no many words today, may be because i am a little tired of making little resumes of what is happening in USA and Worldwide, anyway i just wanted to pass the message of this barbarian government/state sanctioned murder.
so, i ask:
open your eyes and heart, don’t hide them from this terrible reality.
