Torture Rehabilitation

Torture Rehabilitation

One of the great tragedies of war is that its deleterious effects continue long after the final battles have been fought. The U.S. currently serves as refuge for over 400,000 victims of torture from as many as 112 countries that continue the practice of torturing prisoners of war. Many of the countless victims of torture have only recently received help in repairing their lives. Also the Women's Media Center of Cambodia reported last year that there were over eight million uncleared anti-personnel mines in their country, and over 100 million uncleared mines worldwide. Human rights activists have stepped up their efforts to deal with these tragedies on both an individual and global scale. Over 100 torture-rehabilitation centers have been opened in various countries; and in Cambodia, national media groups as well as international organizations have sponsored treatment programs for landmine victims. Activists urgently call for international bans on torture and on the production and deployment of landmines. In this program, viewers visit two torture rehabilitation centers; also they witness the continuing horrific effects of landmines on innocent Cambodians. The program ends with a discussion of the value of computers and the Internet in facilitating a truly global human rights movement. 02/12DE JSCA 30 min.
