Definition of Torture according to the United Nations Convention Against Torture
Why Campaign against Torture?
Reason is: Jesus himself was tortured
Whoever tortures a human being,
Whoever abuses a human being,
Whoever outrages a human being
Abuses God's image,
And the church takes as its own
That cross, that martyrdom.
(Archbishop Romero of El Salvador, murdered in 1980 because of his support for the poor and suffering people of his country)
