BTM has called for the arrest of the architects of the American torture program. Now we are joining with a coalition of Human Rights and activists groups seeking to end American-sponsored torture by holding those responsible accountable. We are seeking justice for those who were tortured and for the war crimes committed in violation of the laws of the United States, the Geneva Convention, and basic human decency.
We are organizing a Torture Accountability Action Day on June 25th in Washington DC and cities across the country.
If you can be in the DC area on June 25th, here are the details:
Where: John Marshall Park, 501 Pennsylvania Ave NWWhen: Tabling starts at 9am, Speakers and rally are 11am to Noon, March to the Department of Justice at NoonWhat: A day of demonstration aimed at ending torture by holding those responsible accountable. We will call on Attorney General Eric Holder to appoint a Special Prosecutor for torture and war crimes.

There will be more updates as June 25th approaches. Until then, help spread the word. You know people! Tap your email contacts, your Facebook friends, your Twitter network. Failure to hold the torture masters accountable will guarantee their crimes will be repeated in the future. This is one of those times when grassroots organizing and old-fashioned people power is the only thing that will enforce our nation's most basic laws and uphold the most fundamental tenets of human dignity.
