Support Torture Survivors

Despite being prohibited in the strongest terms by international law, many men, women and children continue to be tortured every day all over the world. Torture brutalises societies for generations and is one of the most horrific crimes that can be perpetrated against a human being, as it seeks to obliterate the self through calculated acts of cruelty.  

In recent years, some States have attempted to weaken the absolute ban on torture. They have tried to introduce exceptions and narrow definitions of torture to widen the universe of what is permissible treatment. They have argued, for example, that “torture works” to prevent terrorist attacks and national security threats.

This 26 June, International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, REDRESS brings you the stories behind some of the torture survivors that we assist, so you can judge for yourself how wrong torture is. Please support survivors of torture by following, liking and sharing their stories, and say NO to those who say that torture can be justified.
