Today June 26 is the international day against torture! The United Nations International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, the world says a clear NO to torture. On this special day, the struggle against torture is being celebrated by thousands of people worldwide, and the victims of this shameful practice are remembered.
It’s a great time to remember that we are the ones that need to speak out against torture. It’s also a good opportunity to tell people about the good organizations like the UN Voluntary Fund for Victims of Torture that aim to prevent torture and help those that have suffered through it.
