A common space for harmonic peacemakers
Honorable Mr. President Truong Tan Sang of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam
RE: Death Penalty in Vietnam
We who are numbers of the Plum Village community in France, which includes monastic and lay practitioners from several countries, respectfully write this letter to ask you and the Vietnamese Government to order a ban on the death penalty in Vietnam.
We are sharing this letter with friends in religious and humanitarian community worldwide. Many people will add their names to this request that you, Mr. President, use your considerable power so that now and in the future many people may benefit from your compassionate action.
I signed of course,..but why only for Vietnam?! --
I am surely not the first one... -
you took action on May 13, 2011 !
