thedesignfiles Thinking of these two men and their families, as well as the other inmates facing state-sanctioned execution in Indonesia this week. What a devastating, pointless outcome. The death penalty is barbaric, these men have spent ten years in rehabilitation. To kill them is inhumane and just so devastating. Peaceful candlelight vigils will take place in Melbourne and Sydney tomorrow night at 6pm, follow @mercy_campaign for details. Our last chance to show Andrew and Myuran and their families that we care. So, so sad. #IStandForMercy #Mercy 2w
  •   odieb04 I find it really inappropriate that a few people on here are calling out others who are presenting a different side to this debate to the side that they stand on, and labelling them as heartless or indecent. By all means have an open conversation but don't assume you're better because you have a different view. 1w
  •   petapledger @mypollywood , @thedesignfiles is a family friend. Perhaps the two of you can collaborate? 1w
  •   mypollywood We are shooting a video to send directly to Tony Abbott. Many celebs have shot clips for me in the last 24hours. Geoffrey Rush, Guy Pearce, Brian Brown and MANY more. I can send you video when it is done (we are working all night to edit). Alternatively you can shoot a small clip yourself. Email me if interested pollykiki@hotmail.com 1w
  •   lorified_life I heard. This is very sad! Thnx for sharing @allthingsava 1w

  •   evets28 Agreed @odieb04 well said 1w
  •   oakandink 1w
  •   rummagestyle We should always speak up loudly when a government has laws we don't believe are humane. Just because the death penalty is Indonesian law it does not make it right and certainly does not mean we should respect it. What place would the world be if we sat back and "respected" all laws of other nations. It is our duty as citizens in this world to create pressure against, and to question governments that we believe are behaving in harmful ways. It's a stand against the death penalty, not just the killing of these two men. 1w
