Thank you for joining this year's 26 June campaign
Every year, the United Nations International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, on 26 June, gives us the opportunity to stand united and remind the world that torture is a cruel violation of human rights.
Fighting Impunity was the theme for the 26 June 2014 campaign. No doubt this is a significant subject all over the world. Everywhere and every day, crimes of torture are committed against men, women and children and, in most cases, no one is prosecuted or punished for them. These crimes are committed with impunity.
Impunity is the failure of the state to fully investigate violations; to bring to justice and punish perpetrators; to provide victims with effective remedies; and to take all necessary steps to prevent a recurrence of the violation.
The campaign theme was chosen by IRCT member centres around the world who voted on their preferred theme.
