Vigil to End Official Silence on NC’s Role in Torture

 

Seeking transparency for the state’s role in the CIA Rendition and Torture program.

 

June 26 is the UN International Day in Support of Victims of Torture.  Join us in respectfully urging the Governor to acknowledge and end our state’s role in torture.

 

Wednesday, June 26, 12 – 1 p.m at the Governor’s Office, 116 W Jones St, Raleigh

 

Thousands of North Carolinians have petitioned Governor Cooper to investigate the stationing at a North Carolina public airport of Aero Contractors, identified by the NY Times as a CIA front airline that has been used to “render,’’ i.e., kidnap and transport, dozens of people to overseas torture locations during the George W. Bush years. The airline’s facilities have been expanded since. So far, the Governor has not responded.
