June 26 Tweet-in to stop torture

Today is the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture.

Join @No_More_Torture, @PresbyUN, and others  in an effort to #StopTorture- by tweeting your members of Congress & the White House against torture, Guantanamo and Indefinite Detention under the NDAA. Also, feel free to tweet on any subject related to the injustice of torture and in support of victims of torture.

Here are some of the hash tags being used:

#June26
#NoTorture
#StopTorture
#torture
#Guantanamo
#NDAA

The National Religious Campaign Against Torture offers some sample tweets:

Torture is a MORAL issue because {say why} #June26

Torture destroys the human dignity and respect entitled to every individual. #StopTorture #June26

Torture violates the inherent, God-given dignity and worth of every person. #NoTorture #June26

Torture desecrates humanity and God who “created humankind in God’s own image.”

Close #Guantanamo, a symbol of torture. #June 26

Find policy statements and other resources on stopping torture from the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).

With thanks to Carol Wickersham – my mentor on addressing the issue of torture.
