Canada: Helping to prevent torture

From crazy signs to preventing torture - who says this isn't an eclectic blog?

This may be an interesting link for everyone... and is a direct link for Canadians to sign on to a letter to Prime Minister Martin, asking him to ratify the Optional Protocol to the UN Convention against Torture and other forms of Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (OPCAT). This protocol puts some teeth into international inspection of detention centres. Torture is practiced in many states and the current tacit endorsement in the 'war on terror' is simply a nudge and a wink to many thugs around the world. Everthing that might put fright up their butts is a good thing - this is one of those things.

Hey, there's an election going on here - maybe Paul will listen up! I recently sent an email to all 4 local federal candidates on a similar issue - two of them responded (and not form letters either).

Very eclectic. That's why it's one of my favorites!
