Amnesty are just full of questions, and they are generally important ones that deserve real consideration, and hopefully eventually answers too. On June 26 they will be asking "Who, where and why is torture used in the world today? And what is the link between refugees, torture and trauma?". It is a discussion coordinated by the Pitt Street Action Group and STARTTS to mark the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture.
Join the likes of Danielle Celermajer - Associate Professor in Sociology and Social Policy at the University of Sydney and Director of the Faculty’s Human Rights Program, Jorge Aroche - NSW Service for the Treatment And Rehabilitation of Torture and Trauma Survivors CEO, Katie Wood - formerly the Campaign Coordinator for the Counter Terror with Justice Campaign at Amnesty International Australia, and moderator Richard Ackland as they discuss the treatment and support of refugees to help them recover from their experiences of torture and rebuild their lives in Australia.
