Help Us Stop Torture

“Governments around the world are two-faced on torture – prohibiting it in law, but facilitating it in practice” - Salil Shetty, Amnesty International’s Secretary General


Our aim is to stop both civilians and government throughout the world torturing people; whether they are innocent or not. It is a basic human right to not be subjected to torture. This petition is one of the various campaigns we are starting to try and stop torture.
