A world free from torture: Imagine that.

We have that world clearly in our sights. Amnesty has campaigned to stop torture for over 50 years, and we are not giving up. Because torture is never, ever justified. It is barbaric and inhumane.

As our timeline on pages 6-9 shows, decades of tireless campaigning have already brought huge achievements, including the UN Convention against Torture.

Yet people just like you are still being tortured all over the world. You will meet five of them in this issue of WIRE: Alfreda, Ali, Claudia, Dilorom and Moses (pages 10-17).

By supporting Amnesty’s Stop Torture campaign, you’ll be joining a global movement of millions. Together, we will stand between the torturers and the tortured, sending a clear and simple message to the powers that be: Stop torture.

Join us on our journey. We all have the right to live in a world that is torture-free.

Read about this and much more in WIRE, our global campaigning magazine.
