6月26日提醒人们酷刑是一种国际犯罪和侵犯人权行为。

每年6月26日,世界各地康复中心和人权组织纪念联合国支持酷刑受害者国际日(International Day in Support of Victims of Torture)。

这一天是1987年《联合国反酷刑公约》(U.N. Convention Against )生效纪念日,用以提醒人们,酷刑是一种国际犯罪和侵犯人权行为。

总部设在美国、为酷刑幸存者提供直接护理的国际非营利组织酷刑受害者中心(Center for Victims of Torture)指出,酷刑伤害的不仅是肉体,而且伤害心灵和精神。该中心说,复元是一个缓慢的过程,即使对最强韧的人也是一样。

据该中心说,有大约50万受到出于政治动机的酷刑的幸存者在美国获得救助。

欧巴马总统谴责酷刑,并誓言美国将继续努力消灭酷刑,帮助受害者康复。

Remember Torture Victims on June 26

Each year on June 26, rehabilitation centers and human rights organizations around the world mark the United Nations’ International Day in Support of Victims of Torture.

The day — which marks the coming into force in 1987 of the U.N. Convention Against Torture — serves as a reminder that torture is an international crime and a human rights violation.

Torture not only wounds the body, it wounds the psyche and the spirit, according to the Center for Victims of Torture, an international nonprofit organization headquartered in the United States that provides direct care to torture survivors. Healing is a slow process, the center says, even among the most resilient individuals.

According to the center, there are some 500,000 survivors of politically motivated torture who have found refuge in the United States.

President Obama has condemned the use of torture and pledged that the United States will continue efforts to eradicate its use and rehabilitate its victims.
