Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
BBC: Europe fights capital punishment
Europe is marking its first anti-death penalty day, despite moves from Poland to block the event, calling for it also to condemn abortion and euthanasia.

The day was taken over by the Council of Europe, a human rights body, after Poland's veto threatened to derail an EU-sponsored event.

The event is being held in conjunction with a global anti-death penalty day.

Capital punishment is banned in all 27 EU states but Poland's president called on the EU to reintroduce it last year.

And in related news, it's the world day against the death penalty.
