We welcome Canada’s long overdue accession to the global Arms Trade Treaty. But it will only be meaningful if it is accompanied by concrete action to end our complicity in the suffering of innocent Yemeni civilians by suspending the export of Canadian-made LAVs to Saudi Arabia.
The U.S. failure to pursue accountability for key participants its torture program undermines the global struggle against impunity for torture. Canada’s failure to examine its actions in Afghanistan similarly undermines the effort to end torture. Canadians must continue to demand made-in-Canada accountability for the immoral and unconscionable acts committed in our name.
Omar Khadr was a child soldier illegally interrogated by Canadian agents while detained and tortured by a foreign power.
Only two weeks left to sign e-petition 608 to ensure that the investigation of Afghan abuses has full access to information.
In a deeply disappointing response, the Canadian government has shirked its duties under international law and rejected the call for a Public Inquiry into the treatment of Afghan detainees.
Please sign the E-70 Petition on the Torture of Afghan Detainees before April 15.
