Stop Torture

The Harvard Anti-Torture Coalition

Urge Accountability

SAMPLE LETTER TO YOUR CONGRESS MEMBERS:

Dear Representative _______ and Senators ________ and ________:

I call upon you, my elected representatives, to appoint a special prosecutor to conduct a thorough, independent, and public investigation into the role of high-ranking U.S. officials in the abuse and torture of detainees in Guantánamo, Iraq, Afghanistan, and in secret detention facilities throughout the world.

I am deeply disturbed by evidence of the systematic use of torture and cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment against detained persons in the name of the United States, including the outsourcing of torture to other countries. This pattern of abuse “resulted from decisions made by the Bush administration to bend, ignore and cast rules aside.” [1]

Involvement in war crimes must not remain unpunished, no matter what the perpetrator’s rank. Current and former top U.S. officials such as Donald Rumsfeld (former Sec. of Defense), Alberto Gonzalez (former U.S. Attorney General), George Tenet (former Director of the CIA), Porter Goss (former Director of the CIA), Michael Hayden (current Director of the CIA), and Steven Bradbury (acting head of the Office of Legal Counsel, Dep. of Justice), have remained unaccountable for their roles in these crimes. I demand accountability for all public officials, not only for those who actively participate in torture, but also for those who condone, instigate, order, or acquiesce to abuses of detainees.

    European Deal
    All bookings and contracts are settled through SAE Event GmbH, a registered travel agency in Austria. As a result, all transactions and processes are done based on the European legal system. So you would have the advantage of working with a local tour operator under EU-law. Visiting Iran with locals was never that hassle-free.

    Tower of silence is this ancient Zoroastrian cemetery that has the most spiritual feels to the atmosphere and the best view of the historical city of Yazd. Consequently, it made me question if I wanted to hide somewhere and never leave Iran! I started praying to the ancient gods for some more paid time off!
    It was quite dangerous to end my trip in the peaceful Abyaneh. It’s where people still know how to live like their ancestors from hundreds of years ago in tune with nature and dangerously enough that made me want to come back next year to explore some more of what Iran has to offer beyond my imagination!

    “It was as if I’m walking on a backward path through history. We started from Tabiat Bridge in Tehran with many elements of any other modern city in the world. There, you can see a glimpse of all cultures and ethnics from all over Iran. Later we headed for Kashan, a city with old grand mansions and buildings dating back to 150 years ago. We continued to Isfahan with its famous buildings from 700 years ago. Now we are in Fahadan neighborhood in Yazd, a 1000-year old city in the middle of the desert but full of life, an oasis which is real. And the last point of this time travel is the glorious city of Shiraz, where once was the majestic capital of old Persia during the Achaemenid dynasty 2500 years before now… ”

    “Hey, do you like me to write you a summary of everyday adventure?” He continued, “So, read more.”
