International Day in Support of Victims of Torture

It’s the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture. I’m not going to comment here, as there’s plenty out there and anything I say would likely be said elsewhere. But here are some good links.

For general information and a description of the day, see the UN”s announcement.

To see the advocacy efforts from a treatment perspective, see the International Rehabilitation Council for Torture Victims.

Human Rights Education Associates also has a nice page with resources for educator, lawyers, people they call “human rights monitors” (I think that’s anyone with a camera in their cell phone… at least in Iran).

For the human rights blogoperspective, see the Witness blog. Witness is a great organization in general, and everyone should know about them.
