The Death Penalty: a very controversial subject. Due to the terrorist attacks in Brussels and Paris, 7 out of 10 people in Belgium are thinking about reinstalling the death penalty. Amnesty International is fiercely against this and wanted to show the Belgian people that a death penalty is never the answer. To make people think, the organization made the Death Penalty test. In this online test, people are shown different characters, which they can condemn to death by simply clicking “yes” or “no”. They get to see a few characteristics of these people: a picture and the crimes that that person committed.
At the end of the test, all participants realized that the death penalty is never an option. The controversial test was picked up in 138 countries and 39226 people filled in this test in only one day.
