There Will Be Blood On Cameron's Hands If Lindsay Sandiford Is Executed

22 Jan 2013

Indonesian Firing Squad

The 'war on drugs', the great, immoral evil that is prohibition, is responsible for the cruel and unjustifiable death sentence passed on Lindsay Sandiford.

Cameron is one of the principal supporters of prohibition. His irresponsible and hypocritical drugs policy, along with his co-conspirators in the US is what creates the climate in which Indonesia implements such harsh and inhuman punishments.

Of course it's true that cocaine can lead to death and misery but in reality it's no more dangerous or harmful than alcohol. It is prohibition that creates all the most severe harms around cocaine and leads to the situation where this poor woman has apparently been coerced into acting as a drugs mule.

Cameron must bear his share of responsibility for the Indonesian death sentence. If Lindsay Sandiford faces a firing squad, then Cameron and Obama will be members of it. Make no mistake, they will be pulling their triggers. They will be to blame.
