Just an alert for an event Amnesty International is
holding on Feb 10 and 11. Besides the film screening itself, there
will be a facilitator to see a discussion through after the show.
Hope you can make it and support the event. Would appreciate you
mailing the advert below out to your contacts as well.
Many thanks,

really at stake with today's
"War on Terror"

Torture works...
to inflict unspeakable pain on defenseless people
to break the will and destroy the personality of the victim
to brutalise the victims
to make the victim say what the torturer wants to hear
to increase terrorism by normalizing brutality and antagonizing
communities
to inspire hatred and terror across whole communities
to deepen divisions in society by dehumanizing certain groups

Torture doesn't work...

To stop terrorism
To
make us safer
