Eleos Justice – Killing in the name of God: State-sanctioned Violations of Religious Freedom

As of 2020, blasphemy was formally criminalised in some 84 countries. As many as 21 countries criminalised apostasy as of 2019. In at least 12 countries, such offences are death eligible.

This report examines the extent to which States commit, or are complicit in, killings that violate religious freedom.

GUILTY POSTER

Documentary (1 Hour 20 Minutes)

Myuran Sukumaran became an accomplished artist while in Kerobokan prison under the tutorship of artist Ben Quilty. Approaching this moment through the aesthetic of his art practice, director Matthew Sleeth brings an intensely personal perspective, and this film is born of his quiet fury at the events leading to the executions of Myuran and Andrew Chan, alongside six other prisoners. At the end of a life cut brutally short, in preparing for his death Myuran created incredible paintings. This film explores the extraordinary circumstances in which these works were created and Myuran’s urgency to complete this powerful statement. GUILTY presents Myuran’s final days and his artworks as the perfect argument against the death penalty.

New CPJP program tile

No two days working or volunteering with CPJP are the same. Our virtual program allows you to try a range of these tasks that we tackle on a daily basis and to develop and apply your analytical, communication and research skills to this important topic.

This program is recommended for participants who have studied or are interested in law, international relations, diplomacy, human rights, policy, advocacy and communications, and those who are interested in the promotion and protection of human rights. While the focus of this program is on our work towards the abolition of capital punishment, many of the skills are relevant to other human rights causes.

Join us and put your diverse backgrounds, skills, experience and passion to a good cause.
