Before the September 11th attacks, the United States condemned torture, protested secret tribunals, decried disappearances, and challenged secret and arbitrary detentions. But a growing public record of official documents and testimonies makes undeniably clear that prisoners were tortured, abused, and in some cases even killed in U.S. custody since 9/11, and that officials at the very highest levels of our government authorized and encouraged the mistreatment.
Join local activists and leaders as we read transcripts from the reports of torture and consider how we move forward as a country and as human beings.
Refreshments will be provided. This event is free of charge and cosponsored by the ACLU of Michigan's Metro Detroit Branch, Swords into Plowshares Peace Center & Gallery, Veterans for Peace, and Amnesty International - Detroit group #78.
Event time: 1-3pm
