These 3 people were out in the rain a few days back, doing volunteer work for Amnesty International.
It was a campaign to make people aware of what is happening in Saudi Arabia.

Death Penalty for kids/ teenagers!!

They were enthusiastic about taking photos of passers by with the sign, and collecting signatures.
(The big smile came after we all realised that the first two pictures I had taken had the sign upside down.)
Tonight there will be an event both at the Cathedral, in the streets, and at the Culture house
The mayor Sagen Helgø will give an appeal and the nominated Oscar film
"Cities of Ghosts:Raqqua" will be shown at the cinema.
This is a global event that will be marked in many other places

If you are in the Stavanger area and are interested you will find Amnesty International at the Culture house  from 16.30 and at the Cathedral from 17.30

I agree with them. Capital punishment is revenge, not justice, and there are those who have been put to death on wrongful evidence.
