Commemorating United Nations International Day for Victims of Torture June 26

June 18, 2012

The Center for Survivors of Torure is participating in the digital media campaign in support of survivors of torture and in recognition of The United Nations International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, June 26th.
The image below was created by artist Mana Neyestani and his own interpretation of the image is included.
“One thing it conveys to me is that there’s a thirst and a passion for freedom, a longing to fly, that persists as an image even when real freedom is beyond our reach. The shadow represents a desire that cannot be attained but nevertheless continues to flicker.” -Mana Neyestani
In collaboration with other centers, CST is participating in a digital media campaign to commemorate torture survivors around the world. We will be posting pictures both on our website and Facebook pages. Please visit our Facebook page at and help to support this campaign.
