Christians Against Torture
ACTION BY CHRISTIANS AGAINST TORTURE
The Oswestry Group met at the Friends’ Meeting House, Oak Street, on
Tuesday, 11th October.
We received new appeal letters to send to the Governments of Bahrain
and Iran regarding named prisoners, and to the Governments of Myanmar
(Burma) about women who have undergone brutality, rape and even
death at the hands of a military that tortures and abuses with impurity.
We are asked to send an appeal to our Government urging them to
support an international investigation into rape and sexual violence by the
Myanmar (Burmese) military.
The ACAT Newsletter also asked us to pray for all victims of torture and ill
treatment across the world. May all governments honour the commitment
to stamp out torture, over three decades after the ground-breaking
Convention against Torture was adopted by the United Nations in 1984.
The next meeting will be on 13th December at the Friends’ Meeting
House, at 2.30pm and all are welcome.
