Say no to torture, join the campaign


HAT logoTo celebrate its 30th anniversary and on the occasion of the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, the OMCT invites you to participate in the launch of its #HumansAgainstTorture, or HAT campaign, for short.

The campaign calls on the general public, all those concerned about human rights, and the members of OMCT’s global SOS Torture Network to help spread awareness against torture.

Using Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as key platforms, the HAT campaign invites you to share photos of yourself or others – whether torture victim, activists or just a person on the street who want this practice to end – wearing a hat, as a symbol of their adherence to the campaign.

You may add a brief story and/or a statement against torture to the photo, and then remember to add the tag #HumansAgainstTorture. 

All these HAT stories and pictures website will be channeled to on a “Wall of Support » as of next week. Please visit the site to check yourself out or learn more about torture!

The most important thing probably is that you talk about the HAT campaign around youand to all your contacts, friends and family to ensure as many people as possible around the world take part in it.

To help you help #HumansAgainstTorture go viral, we have devised two tools for you:

– please find attached a graphic overview of how the campaign works, and

Humans Against Torture - HAT– a guidebook with detailed social media instructions and resources to encourage campaigners to join.

On behalf of the OMCT, we hope you will help make a difference through this campaign and look forward to seeing you among the many #HumansAgainstTorture. Only together will we make torture end.
