Hi, Tuesday, June 26, is International Day for Victims of Torture. We sill see a short video and if anyone has any readings or poems re. the victims of torture at Guantanamo please bring and we can read. We will still be meeting at the East 7th Mississippi Market, 740 East 7th. The United Nations International Day in Support of Victims of Torture – 26 June is held annually on 26 June to speak out against the crime of torture <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torture> and to honor and support victims and survivors throughout the world. This is a day on which we pay our respects to those who have endured the unimaginable. This is an occasion for the world to speak up against the unspeakable. It is long overdue that a day be dedicated to remembering and supporting the many victims and survivors of torture around the world. — Former United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kofi_Annan>, 1998 <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Day_in_Support_of_Victims_of_Torture#cite_note-1> On this International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, we express our solidarity with, and support for, the hundreds of thousands of victims of torture and their family members throughout the world who endure such suffering. We also note the obligation of States not only to prevent torture but to provide all torture victims with effective and prompt redress, compensation and appropriate social, psychological, medical and other forms of rehabilitation. Both the General Assembly and the Human Rights Council <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_Rights_Council> have now strongly urged States to establish and support rehabilitation centers or facilities. — United Nations Secretary-General <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Nations_Secretary-General> Ban Ki-moon <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ban_Ki-moon>, 2012 <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Day_in_Support_of_Victims_of_Torture#cite_note-2> Thanks, Patty
