The Coliseum Lit up for Nebraska's repealing the Death penalty tomorrow night, July 1st at the iniziative of the Community of Sant'Egidio, promoter of the world movement Cities Against the death penalty, 1,900 cities of the planet from both abolitionist and retentionist countries


The historical step of Nebraska legislators when Nebraska became the first conservative state in more than 40 years to abolish the death penalty on Wednesday May 27th, when lawmakers boldly voted 30-19 to override the governor's veto, is going be celebrated in Rome tomorrow night, July 1st. "We celebrated New Jersey, New Mexico, Illinois, Connecticut and Maryland, turning the Coliseum into a living testimonial for a justice system always capable to respect human life and dignity" -says Mario Marazziti, coordinator of the international campaign and author if 13 Ways of a Looking at the Death Penalty ( Seven Stories Press ), who now serves as president of the Human Rights Committee of the Italian Parliament.

"The death penalty system is broken, can never be perfect, and it always lowers civil society and the state at the level of the killer, creating new victims. It is a legitimization of a culture of death while it wants to protect lives and support a culture of life - continues in a written note Marazziti. Nebraska can take the lead and help other American states to join the new feeling of the world that overwhelmingly is giving up the death penalty. As it happened on the past to slavery and torture".


On November 30th, 2015, inside the world events of the World Day Cities for Life, a solemn event with the participation of a Nebraska delegation will take place in Rome.
