Committee Against Torture Meeting

September 15, 2008

Our next Committee Against Torture meeting will be on Monday, September 15 at 6 PM, 2140 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley CA, Suite 601.

Torture as an acceptable interrogation technique is increasingly defended by political and legal figures in positions of power. The NLG maintains what most scholars and human rights activists maintain, that torture is immoral and illegal. Join us for our next committee meeting to organize against torture and its defenders.
