Marcel marks 30 years of the end of the death penalty in France

To mark the 30th anniversary of the abolition of the death penalty in France, The ECPM and Marcel agency organised an event at the Bibliothèque François Mitterrand in Paris to raise awareness.

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.
