During the next several months, Congress will consider whether or not to increase funding for the UN Voluntary Fund for Victims of Torture. The Fund provides important support for torture treatment programs around the world. The U.S. has long been the Fundís strongest supporter, though in recent years the U.S. contribution to the Fund has declined from a peak of approximately $7 million to about $6 million. Please write to your Members of Congress and ask for an increase in support for the Fund.

It is interesting that the US has been the biggest supporter, yet under Baby Bush and Chickenhawk Cheney were perpetrators of torture.

Noted, signed, twittered and google shared. Considering the US is responsible for many victims of torture, they damn well should be funding aid for victims. Thanks J.L.
