New Zealand petition

Iran, in addition to its position as the world’s number two country after China for the execution of its citizens, also executes individuals who were minors at the time of their alleged offences.  Our colleagues in New Zealand have been doing sterling work on this and the link below will take you to a petition on their site.  Children as young as nine can be caught in policy.  International protest is slowly having an effect.

There are facts and background information on the link.  We hope you will spare a few moments to sign it.
