Go for ZERO Torture!
On Torture
Tuesday, 13 October 2009 21:20

It has been a long and arduous road for the human rights community’s lobby and campaign for the enactment of an anti-torture law. It has been more than a decade of challenges for the goal to criminalize this inhuman practice.  Meanwhile incidents of torture continue to increase and perpetrators remain free.

After the Bicameral Committee of the 14th Congress finished its session last August and came out with a combined version of the anti-torture bill which is also known as “An Act Penalizing Torture & Other Cruel, Inhuman and Degrading Treatment or Punishment”, both houses had ratified the bill and is now set to be transmitted to the President for signature.

Much has been done but there are more to be accomplished.

What we need to do now is to intensify our lobby work for the bill to be enacted into law.   Push Congress to immediately transmit the bill to the President and for GMA to sign it accordingly.

Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP) invites everyone to join our ZERO TORTURE DRIVE

a.    Support PAHRA’s Signature campaign for GMA to sign the anti-torture bill into law now
b.    Celebrate the nearing enactment of the Anti-Torture Law by joining the Freedom from Torture Advocates’ countdown campaign until its enactment
c.    Support letter writing campaign for an Anti-Torture Law
d.    Join TFDP’s ZERO TORTURE WALK in November

Express your rage against torture.  Support ZERO TORTURE DRIVE!
