Two digital screens were set up facing each other. The first panel featured a soldier aiming his rifle; the second panel portrayed a convict awaiting death.
People passing by could position themselves between the two panels, freeing the convict. The aim was to show that taking a stand against the death penalty saves lives.
A sticker on the ground allowed users to sign the petition for the universal abolition of the death penalty by simply flashing a QR code with their mobile phones.
The event will be repeated throughout the anniversary year including the World Day Against The Death Penalty.
