Unsubscribe Me

Amnesty International have made this really really scary short film about torture techniques and are inviting us all to view them and then perhaps choose to ‘unsubscribe’ from them – to let Governments (ie the UK and US ones – better we put our own houses in order before we turn to Zimbabwe, Saudi Arabia and Burma eh?) that we the people don’t approve of this.

It’s totally outrageous that this technique is authorised, used, and taught by us. This comes hot on the heals of reading some terrible stuff about Waterboarding here which we also seem to consider to be okay.

Gaze on this image: The Tortured Christ

It was painted by an artist who was himself a victim of torture. See – he understands.
