Please take a moment to read and sign the following petition to help
save Australian citizen Schapelle Corby from death by firing squad in
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
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.
A group of very concerned Australian citizens
