A People's Silence Is A People's Complicity

All this week a diverse coalition in Berkeley, Ca. - where John Yoo "teaches law" - is holding "No to Torture" events dubbed "a week of conscience and community in action against the crime of torture." Noting that many of the abuses committed under Bush/Cheney - torture and "the
shredding of basic legal
and human rights for whole 'enemy' populations" -are continuing
today, organizers hope that other communities will use their model to
raise "a multitude of voices and actions against torture."

Why
support these events? "Because we are living in a country where
torturers are allowed to walk
free, and the use of torture has come to be "debatable." 
Because torture has been government-sponsored and presidentially
approved. Because, in fact, torture is a war crime and a crime against
humanity."
