 On the occasion of the XII World Day Against the Death Penalty, which is celebrated today, the Community of Sant'Egidio, co-founder of the World Coalition Against the Death Penalty, announces the upcoming convocation of two international conferences on the theme "No Justice Without Life" to be held in Asia, respectively, in Tokyo, Japan on October 23 and 25, and Manila in the Philippines, the 27th and the 28th of the same month. 

Asia is the continent where the death penalty kills more people (most of the 58 countries maintainers are Asian). But in recent years there have been significant openings at the level of governments and interesting developments in civil society.
 
For such a reason, Sant'Egidio has been concentrating its efforts this year in Asian countries.
 
In Tokyo, on October 23 at the headquarters of the House of Representatives, parliamentarians, judges, intellectuals and human rights activists will attend. Among them the Hon. Mario Marazziti, president of the Human Rights Commission of the Italian Parliament, and representatives of the European Union.
 
The two-day Manila is the first Pan-Asian Conference "There is no justice without life", at the intergovernmental level, organized by the Department of Justice of the Philippines and by the Community of Sant'Egidio with the City of Manila-Mandaluyong. 
The conference will be attended by ministers of justice, senior officials, mayors, religious leaders, witnesses of the struggle for justice and for human rights in several Asian countries, including the Philippines, India, Japan, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Mongolia, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam. The conference aims to provide a platform for dialogue with those countries that have taken or intend to start a path to a moratorium on executions, in order to open a debate on the issues of the renewal of justice, giving priority to human rights as contained in the Asian tradition, cultural and religious. 
The conference will be inaugurated by the President of the Philippines Benigno Noynoy Aquino.
