In a show of solidarity and support for Myuran Sukumaran, Andrew Chan and their families, candlelit vigils will be held in Melbourne, Sydney, and Perth as their executions look more likely.

Myuran Sukumaran and Andrew Chan of the Bali Nine have been in an Indonesian prison for almost 10 years following the trafficking offence and now now devote their time to the rehabilitation of other prisoners. With almost 200,000 people signing the Mercy Campaign so far and millions of other voicing their disapproval of the death penalty, it is hoped that due to their character reformation they will be granted clemency and have their death penalties commuted to life sentences.

Wednesday’s vigils give the Australian public the chance to come together and show their support for the men and their families on mass, with musicians and speakers that all support’s #IStandForMercy message.
