Source: International Civil Liberties Monitoring Group (ICLMG) URL: Date: June 28, 2019 For this year's International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, help out someone who has spent the past 6,043 days living under the threat of deportation to torture: Ottawa refugee Mohamed Harkat. Call Justin Trudeau at 613-992-4211 and remind him that no one should ever face the prospect of torture. Indeed, the threat of that hanging over someone's head for over 16.5 years is itself a form of torture. Here is a suggested message you can use. Here are two other quick and easy things you can do: 1. Once you have made your call, take a minute to send a letter to your own MP, the PM and federal ministers, asking them to act now. We need all MPs to know that the pressure is on to oppose torture and to keep Moe in Canada. 2. Sign and share the petition on your facebook, instagram, twitter, other social media pages, and via email to encourage friends to sign it.
