World Day Against Death Penalty Forum.

A forum for Singapore's observation of the World Day Against Death Penalty, 10 October 2009, was held in conjunction with the clemency call for death row prisoner, Yong Vui Kong, who some years ago was caught as a drug mule. Video footage from the forum have recently been made available, so I'm posting them below.

Moderated by local poet/playwright, Alfian Sa'at, the main speakers of the event are:

M. Ravi, Human Rights lawyer
Agnes Chia, Social worker
Breama Mathi, Maruah Singapore
Alex Au, Yawning Bread
