On this day in 1981, the @_AfricanUnion's African Charter on Human and Peoples' Rights was adopted in Nairobi, Kenya. The #BanjulCharter outlines #HumanRights & fundamental freedoms, including the prohibition of #Torture (see Article 5). Image
Addressing the #TortureTrade is an essential part in prohibiting & preventing torture. Building on the #BanjulCharter & the #RobbenIslandGuidelines (see particularly RIG 14),... Image
...the @achpr_cadhp #CPTA's 2020-21 priority theme is "the prohibition of the use, production and trade of equipment or substances designed to inflict torture or ill-treatment." (as noted recently in their #InternationalDayAgainstTorture statement: tinyurl.com/bfkz7x7n)

Thoughts on #TortureVictimsDay2021:

To me, #torture is the moral abyss of mankind;
the sacrifice of our humanity on the altar of our fears;
the total capitulation of our personal integrity and,
ultimately, nothing less that the end of civilization itself.
(1/7)
Those who know the reality of #torture, those who have suffered it, those who have inflicted it and those who have tried to heal the physical, mental and emotional wounds resulting from it, know that torture destroys deeply, utterly and irreversibly.
(2/7)
No one who has faced the ugly reality of #torture could ever still cling to the illusion of such abuse being compatible with humanity, with dignity, or with any notion of respectable and responsible human life.

June is torture awareness month and this month, we'd like to highlight how widespread torture is in Indian-occupied #Kashmir.

Since the #occupation began in 1947, India has used gruesome #torture as a tool of suppression against Kashmiris. (A THREAD)
Torture is used as a systematic mechanism to create a fear-psychosis in the Kashmiri people & weaken the people’s resolve to resist occupation. It's used to show absolute power & to make examples out of people so that the entire society submits to Indian occupation & colonialism.
Since the occupation began in 1947, India has used gruesome torture as a tool of suppression against Kashmiris. Torture against Kashmiris intensified further since the armed struggle for freedom began in the late 1980s.

As we come up to UN #victimsoftorture day (26 June) let's recall the #srilanka security forces' 'White Vans' (synonymous with abduction & #torture - & sometimes disappearance) date back to the JVP era. They don't really stop & start, depending on the government in power - alas.
In 1989 an .@amnesty report said "in a typical case, plainclothes armed men arrived at the victims' home at night, travelling in Pajero keeps or Hiace vans...usually they gave no explanation for taking away the victim..."

@amnesty President Gotabaya Rajapaksa said in 2019: "May be our intelligence agencies used Hi Ace vans which are white. I did not introduce it. It happened under all the previous Governments".

1. oggi ci sono molte cose importanti, ma ce n'è una che se non la mettiamo noi sullo schermo radar dell'opinione pubblica non lo farà nessuno. Vi ho detto già che sono completamente contraria a come #Russia tratta #Navalny indipendentemente da come #Navalny la pensa in politica
2. vi invito però a confrontare il processo a #Navalny e il processo a Julian #Assange.Guardiamo ai fatti.#Navalny è stato processato con grande presenza della stampa e osservatori,abbiamo visto il video del cuore che ha disegnato per la moglie
3. abbiamo visto che l'intero universo mondo ha espresso condanna e solidarietà a #Navalny dal presidente del Parlamento EU, @DavidSassoli fino a tutta la politica italiana. Va bene così: questa attenzione lo protegge

.@CIA scandals in no particular order.
Overthrow of democratically elected Iranian government in early 50s. Trained Shah’s secret police to #torture. CIA has always known that torture is unreliable for intelligence gathering, you see. It’s for fear & creating false intel usable for what oligarchs want.
Systemic rape of young pre-teen girls to study mind control and blackmail. This is what lead up to Jeffrey #Epstein, no question about it. We get mad at who visited his island, but never discuss why the invited went out and who wanted powerful / influential there.

1-Latest #COVID19BC Testing graph from @CDCofBC Nov. 20th Surveillance report. It shows how they can continue the fear propaganda to "justify" violating #BChumanrightsCode & #Charterrights through meaningless "orders." #psychologicalwarfare #COVIDpsyop
2-I worked in #childprotection in #BC. A major, valid complaint from "clients" of #MCFD was that the goal posts kept getting changed arbitrarily. I didn't practice like that, but saw it. Its actually a strategy of #psychologicalwarfare #institutionalabuse & #torture. #COVIDpsyop
3-I've been blocked by some of "#COVIDZero" "advocates." This campaign is population-based #psychologicalwarfare bc this is impossible to achieve. #COVID19 is a cold/flu virus that's endemic now. Moving the goal posts sets us all up. They just keep moving them. #torture #MKUltra

Cette semaine, tous les yeux sont rivés sur l’affaire #Daval mais un autre ce procès se déroule aux Assises de #Nantes. Sur la photo, c’est le petit David. Il est mort torturé et noyé dans une baignoire à 8 ans le 11 janvier 2017, dans un appartement à Saint-Herblain. Image
Depuis lundi, sa mère et son beau-père sont jugés pour actes de #torture et de #barbarie. David a grandi en Côte d'Ivoire, à l'été 2016 sa mère décide de le ramener en France. Ce procès est ultra dur, j'ai déjà pleuré deux fois.
Premier jour du procès. Ce qui me marque le plus, c'est la façon dont #David est mort. Il avait les poings et pieds liés par une corde, était plongé dans une baignoire d'eau froide. Quelqu'un lui maintenait la tête sous l'eau. Mais qui ? Les parents se rejettent la faute.
