Petition for Schapelle Corby

50 Signatures Goal: 100

Please take a moment to read and sign the following petition to help save Australian citizen Schapelle Corby from death by firing squad in Indonesia. Schapelle Corby has been detained in a Balinese prison and now awaits sentencing from a panel of judges on whether she will be committed to the death penalty, by a firing squad, for allegedly attempting to import four kilograms of cannabis into Indonesia. It is disgusting and barbaric in this day and age that a \'death penalty by firing squad\' law exists, and that an Australian citizen should be subject to it. This law is out-dated and inhumane, and considering that convicted terrorist Abu Bakar Bashir has only been sentenced to two years and six months jail (with the prospect of appeal) for his proven \'conspiracy\' participation in the Bali bombings that killed 183 people, in the same country, it is inconsistent and absurd that another person should face the death penalty for allegedly smuggling cannabis into the country. Furthermore, the Australian Government and airlines should be taking more responsibility for this incident in any case, since it is the fault of the Australian airlines/airport that the drugs even left Australia in the first place - which also leaves us to ponder on the security and possible internal corruption of staff working at Australian airports, in light of drug smuggling and terrorism. We the undersigned demand that the Australian Government, and Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, act responsibly to ensure that, innocent or guilty, Schapelle Corby is returned to Australia and that she does NOT face the \'death penalty by firing Squad\' in Indonesia.
