The Community of sant'Egidio welcomes the abolition in New Jersey, as it represents a visible sign of peace and reconciliation and hopefully its example will be followed soon by other States. Everyone is invited to send the Gov. Corzine the following message of support.
Governor Jon Corzine – New Jersey
I personally applaud your decision to abolish the death penalty in New Jersey. It is really a gesture of justice and freedom, particularly after the vote at UN General Assembly which supported a moratorium of all executions throughout the world.
I hope that other States will soon follow your example.
I take the occasion to wish you a Christmas of peace.
Congratulations, Mr. Governor
NO JUSTICE WITHOUT LIFE
