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.

    There are so many different types of chocolate in the world, each with their own unique flavor and texture. But which one is the most famous?

    Belgium is known for their rich, creamy chocolates, while Switzerland is famous for their distinctive Alpine-style chocolates. France has some of the best dark chocolate in the world, and Italy is home to some of the most unique flavors like tiramisu and amaretto.

    But when it comes down to it, the most famous chocolate in the world is from America. Hershey’s chocolate bars are loved by people all over the globe, and there’s a reason why they’re nicknamed “the gold standard.” With its smooth texture and classic flavor,

    She said people always come to her for relationship advice and so she’s created a tumblr all about breakups, feeling good about yourself even if you’re not in a relationship and — she’s taking questions about breakups like a dear Abby for teens. Surprisingly, she’s getting many questions – some may be silly but I think it is going to make for some funny and entertaining content.
