Witness Against Torture (WAT) invites you to join a fast during June Torture Awareness Week.  We will fast in our homes in deference to the still unvanquished pandemic, but we’ll connect by Zoom.
  • Fast for a day or two, or for all five days. Join the Zoom calls for mutual support on Monday and Wednesday evenings at 8 ET and Saturday morning at 11 ET. (Send an email to witnesstorture@gmail.com with RSVP for Fast in the subject line: you’ll receive the Zoom link and tips on fasting safely.)
  • Actions: Even if you don’t fast, take action to show solidarity with torture survivors, especially the men at Guantanamo:  Check out the list of actions we will take, from calling President Biden to writing letters to the men, at: http://witnessagainsttorture.com/june-2021-torture-awareness-week/.
  • Events: The WAT webpage will list other local events and vigils commemorating the week, so keep checking back for updated information (http://witnessagainsttorture.com/june-2021-torture-awareness-week/).
  • Vigil: A small DC vigil on Saturday June 26 at 2 pm ET will be live-streamed (the link will be posted at (http://witnessagainsttorture.com/june-2021-torture-awareness-week/).
