Welcome

Greater Caribbean For Life

Stop Crime, Not Lives.

The Project

Greater Caribbean For Life is involved in a 3 year project funded by the European Union to increase awareness and advocate for the abolition of the death penalty in Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean.

Our Work

We at Greater Caribbean For Life support grassroots abolitionist activists in the Caribbean and collaborate with the international abolitionist community to see the end of the death penalty within the region.

Our Team

The Greater Caribbean For Life team is formed of individuals across the region who have been working with civil society groups in creating a culture of respect for Human Rights in the Greater Caribbean.

Caribbean Diaspora and the Capital Punishment in the United States an overlooked issue – Part I

The objective of this article is to summarize the application of capital punishment to the people from the Caribbean in the United States. The information presented comes primarily from two sources: (1) a page devoted to the situation of foreign nationals under sentence of death and (2) a report issued last April about Puerto Rican facing the death penalty in the United States. The second part of this analysis, to be published later, will examine specific cases and histories of human beings from our region who have been executed or who are awaiting execution in the US.

Access to Counsel: A Matter of Life or Death

October 10th 2020 is the 18th World Day for the Abolition of the Death Penalty worldwide. This year will be dedicated to the right to effective legal representation for individuals who may face a death sentence.

“Of my 30 years in prison, my worst moment was the first three times I was taken to the condemn cell to face the gallows. They came and weighed me to determine how much weight to put on the gallows for me to hang”
