The fight against torture happens on several fronts; from lobbying international organisations and governments to training health care providers, lawyers and judges, or through supporting the victims themselves to share their stories.

But to win the fight against torture, we need more than that. We need you. We need the collective action of individuals around the world to build a political will, so that perpetrators know that we will no longer accept torture. We will not allow these crimes to continue with impunity.

The IRCT has worked hard to make rehabilitation a right. But we still need to make this right a reality. For that to happen, we need people like you, saying with one voice, “Victims of torture have the right to rehabilitation. Let’s make this right a reality.”

On 26 June is the UN International Day in Support of Victims of Torture. In honour of this day, we call on you to show your support for the victims of this heinous crime and together show the world that we no longer accept torture.

So, on 26 June, what will you do to stop torture?

Here are some ideas of ways to show your support to the victims of torture:

Thank you for showing your support to victims of torture on 26 June. Together, we fight for a world without torture.
