Cities for Life Day
November 30, 2013 in the World

Cities for Life Day is celebrated on November 30, 2013. On the Cities for Life Day, cities around the world celebrate the first abolition of the death penalty by a European state, decreed by Peter Leopold Joseph of Habsburg-Lorraine in 1786 for his Grand Duchy of Tuscany. On this occasion the participating cities show their commitment for life and against the death penalty. On this day, participating cities illuminate a symbolic monument, such as the Atomium in Brussels, the Colosseum in Rome and the Plaza de Santa Ana in Madrid. Participating cities include more than 60 capitals worldwide, and over 1,200 cities and towns around the world. By this symbolic action, these cities demand a stay of all executions worldwide. This initiative is promoted by the Community of Sant’Egidio and supported by the main international human rights organizations, gathered in the World Coalition Against the Death Penalty.

Caution: We recommend you use good judgment. Following the concept of this day could get you a reprimand or cost you your job.
