Together we can end the death penalty everywhere

The death penalty is irreversible. All legal systems make mistakes, so as long as it exists, innocent people will be executed.

When Amnesty International started campaigning against the death penalty back in 1977, only 16 countries had abolished it. Today, 106 countries have abolished the death penalty in law for all crimes and 142 countries have abolished the death penalty in law or practice.

The abolitionist movement has made significant progress over that time, but the countries that still execute prisoners are doing so at alarming rates. Excluding China, the world's leading executioner, 86% of all reported executions took place in just four countries – Iran, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Egypt.

By making a donation today, you can help fund our campaign to end the death penalty and support individuals whose lives are at risk across the world.


Millions of ordinary people have been putting pressure on governments and corporate powers, achieving amazing things:

  • Thousands of lives saved and changed all across the globe

  • More than 140 countries have abolished the death penalty in law or practice

  • The establishment of an International Criminal Court to investigate and prosecute people suspected of committing genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes

  • Increased public awareness of human rights over the last 60 years

The most powerful way for you to take part in this movement for change is by making a regular donation. You'll join an unstoppable movement of like-minded supporters who want to create long-term change. You'll help us win more battles.


Amnesty is 100% independent. We will never accept funding from governments or political organisations. This means we’re free to campaign with objectivity and impartiality.

This comes with huge risks: our offices have been closed, raided or spied on in several countries in the last years. Some of our staff have been jailed for doing their work.

But we keep fighting. We keep challenging the systems that enable injustice and abuses. And we'll never stop.

Be the change. Lives depend on it.

All donations of $2 and over are tax-deductible in Australia.
