1) TAKE ACTION
Write a letter, send an email, call, fax or tweet:

  • Halt plans to carry out Wu Zongxi’s execution;
  • Ensure that Wu Zongxi has regular, unrestricted access to family and lawyers of his choice, and is not subjected to torture or other ill-treatment;
  • Establish a moratorium on all executions with a view to abolishing the death penalty, in line with six UN General Assembly resolution adopted since 2007 and commute all existing death sentences.
