The signature campaign in the Diocese of Dumaguete against the restoration of the death penalty has already garnered more than its target 20,000 signatures in just two Sundays since its launching.

William Ablong, who heads the Diocesan Council of the Laity, the group that is leading the campaign, said yesterday that as of the latest count, 20,284 signatures were gathered from the parishes in 23 towns and cities in Negros Oriental and Siquijor covered by the Diocese of Dumaguete.

Ablong said he is still awaiting the signatures from the Balugo Parish in Dumaguete City, San Jose and Zamboanguita towns in Negros Oriental, and Maria, Lazi and Siquijor towns in Siquijor province.
