Abolish the Death Penalty - Everywhere!

Akmal Shaikh, a 53-year-old a father-of-three - who suffered from a Bipolar mental disorder - has been executed by the Chinese state. Last year the venal Stalinist-capitalist dictatorship executed at least 1,718 people, and some 72% of the world's total executions in 2008 took place in China. The death penalty to 60 offences, including non-violent crimes such as tax fraud and embezzlement. Those sentenced to death are usually shot, but some provinces are introducing lethal injections.
