Executions in 2018: min. 690 plus 'thousands' in China


Our organisation is financed solely from membership fees and donations. All members of the German Coalition Against The Death Penalty work on a voluntary basis. As such all monies form membership fees and donations are used exclusively for our work against the death penalty.  

Our major activities include the holding of exhibitions, the giving of speeches and the supporting of actions and groups in other countries as well as taking over postal costs.  

If you would like to support our work, then please make your donation via the account as listed below.  

You may also wish to set up a standing order whereby you can make a monthly or yearly contribution of a sum of your choice (minimum 10 €).  

We can of course provide you with a contribution receipt for every donation of 10 € or more.  

Every small donation helps in our aim to abolish the death penalty. Thank you!
