Stopping Torture

Boing Boing:

Last week on Boing Boing Video, we presented two episodes which were excerpts from a documentary film called OUTLAWED, about people who have survived extraordinary rendition and torture in America’s War on Terror. The film was produced by Witness.org, the human rights/video organization founded by Peter Gabriel, and created in partnership with more than a dozen other human rights groups including the ACLU. In case you missed the excerpts we ran, here they are again, embedded above and below. Direct download link for part 1Direct download link for part 2.

A number of Boing Boing commenters asked how interested people could help or take action on the cases presented in these video episodes. Bryan Nunez from Witness says, “Here are a couple places where people can take action: closegitmo.com, and here is Amnesty International’s page related to these issues. Hope this helps.”
