    Saint-Pierre Cathedral illuminated in green to say no to the death penalty | City of Geneva

    The date November 30 marks the anniversary of the first abolition of the death penalty carried out by a State – the Grand Duchy of Tuscany – in 1786. Today, more than two centuries after this first step, capital punishment remains present on all continents and several thousand people are executed each year.

    Geneva, the world capital of human rights, is joining this awareness campaign coordinated by Amnesty International, Lifespark, ACAT And Sant’Egidio since its launch in 2002.

    This year Saint-Pierre Cathedral will be illuminated green again November 30 to demonstrate the desire for capital punishment to be abolished throughout the world. Through this action, the Administrative Council of the City of Geneva wishes to provide its support for the defense, respect and promotion of universal rights.
