"Start here, start now, stop torture" [activists briefing]
Torture is flourishing because rather than respecting the law by refusing to tolerate torture, governments are either actively using torture, or turning a blind eye and lying about it to their own people and to the world. At the same time, many countries have still not made torture a crime. Once governments use or allow torture, no one is safe. Torture is a global tragedy that can only be stopped when we all unite with the millions of activists around the world calling for an end to this barbaric practice.
