It’s the day for the survivors and victims of torture, the families of victims, for their supporters and friends, and for all the human rights activists and global torture fighters to come together and take a stand. To show support for those who have undergone these horrible crimes. To take a stand against impunity and fight for justice. To show that healing is possible and rehabilitation is a right.
