Korean bishops enlist performers for rally against capital punishment
Catholic World News - August 17, 2010
The Korean Catholic bishops’ conference has enlisted prominent performing artists to join in a rally against the death penalty.
The bishops’ justice-and-peace committee is organizing the September 2 event, pushing for abolition of capital punishment. The country has not used the death penalty since 2007, but the bishops’ committee notes that laws allowing for execution remain on the books.
