U.S. election brings hope to REJECT TORTURE
By Andreas Klamm
New York City, U.S.A./3mnewswire.org/October 29, 2008/– Reject Torture is a project to end torture. The international group „reject torture“ has hope to REJECT TORTURE with the U.S. elections and has issued in a statement on their website:
„There is real hope in this election year. In the “war on terror” our government chose to break radically with our tradition and use torture in interrogating detainees. The consequences have been disastrous. It has spread hatred of America, recruited new terrorists, and placed our soldiers at risk. It has betrayed our values, damaged our credibility, frayed our alliances, and undermined our ability to promote freedom and democracy. TOGETHER WE CAN HALT TORTURE.
Both U.S. Presidential candidates publicly oppose torture. We the people of America must add our voice. Join in this initiative to urge both candidates to lead their political parties to include Reject Torture planks in their party platforms.“
The group has given the advise to contact each of the PRESIDENTIAL candidate now and to insist „No Torture. No Exceptions.“
Senator John McCain can be reached by Phone: (202) 224-2235, Fax: (202) 228-2862 and Senator Barack Obama, Phone: (202) 224-2854, Fax: (202) 228-4260 in the United States of America.
