One Date, One Place: Let’s all stand against #torture in #Lebanon

CLDH (Lebanese Center for Human Rights), a Lebanese NGO active in the fight against torture through documentation, denunciation, lobbying and service-providing would like to dedicate the inauguration of its new office to the support of the victims of torture in Lebanon and all over the World.

Time: Thursday, June 23 · 3:00pm - 7:00pm | Location: Dora, St Joseph Hospital Street, Bakhos Building (facing St Joseph pharmacy), 7th floor

In June, the "International day in support of victims of torture" is indeed an opportunity that can not be missed to stand once again alongside the victims of torture - and against this practice and all inhuman, cruel or degrading treatments.

Every day that passes in Lebanon and in the world reminds us that torture, a set of retrograde practices of another era, still exists and daily harms men, women and children who will remain scarred for the rest of their lives.

CLDH is pleased to invite you to join its team on this international day to express your solidarity with the victims along with fellow partner NGOs representatives from ALEF (Lebanese Association for Education and Training), Human Rights Watch and Al Karama for human rights. Victims, activists, embassies, institutions and any interested person is cordially invited to join this event, that will include a press conference, a film screening and a debate… The commemoration will be followed by a cocktail on the occasion of the opening of CLDH new office.

Please feel free to invite your families and friends. We will be very pleased to meet you on June 23.
