Stop Torture


For decades, Amnesty International has exposed governments who torture and supported torture. We supported the struggle for justice of torture survivors. We helped make the global ban on torture a reality 30 years ago with the UN adoption of the Convention Against Torture. We helped the passage of national laws criminalizing torture in many states – including the Anti-Torture Act of 2009 in the Philippines.

Over the last five years, Amnesty has reported on torture in at least three quarters of the world – 141 countries, from every region. Torture is flourishing because governments are ignoring the law and the commitments that they have made.
