Child Executions, We NEED A Solution sign now

Dear Reader
This is a petition to try and stop the many horrific child executions taking place in Saudi Arabia and Iran every year. Many of these executions are unjust and the child doesnt receive a fair trial for the crime they have committed.
Saudi Arabia executed at least three juvenile offenders in 2009. Amnesty International has condemned recent executions in Saudi Arabia as reports show that five people were beheaded in the kingdom.
Amnesty International Middle East and North Africa programme Deputy Director, Philip Luther, said: these beheadings are a deplorable addition to Saudi Arabias grim tally of executions. It is cruel and inhumane to put anyone to death, but it is particularly outrageous to do so when the executions take place after the grossly unfair procedures and when they take the lives of individuals accused of committing crimes when they were still minors.
Iran is one of the only countries left in the world today that still executes children and child offenders. As of May 2009, there were at least 137 know juvenile offenders awaiting execution in Iran, but the total number could be much higher as many death penalty cases in Iran are believed to go unreported. Of the 43 children recorded as having been executed since 1990, 11 were still under the age of 18 at the time of their execution. While the others recorded as having been executed since 1990, 11 were still on death row until they had reached 18 or were convicted and sentenced after that age.
As you can see by reading the above, all of these cases violate international human rights. It is our objective, through this petition to try and stop future cases of this blatant disregard for human rights from happening.
It would benefit us very much if you would sign the petition below.

Thank you,
The Young Social Innovators Class of 2010-2011.
