Demand the APA ends its collaboration with CIA and military torture techniques

Date:
Friday, August 17, 2007
Time:
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
Event Type:
Protest
Organizer/Author:
Location Details:
Friday, August 17, 4pm-5.30pm
at Stone Stage, Yerba Buena Gardens.

(Access to the gardens is on 3rd Street between Mission and Howard, a
couple of minutes walk from the Moscone Convention Center. )

This is a protest to denouce the APA's complicity in the military and CIA's torture techniques.

Why should you join the protests against the American
Psychological Association?

A recently declassified August 2006 Department of Defense report confirms that psychologists were directly responsible for the development and use of techniques defined by the International Red Cross as “tantamount to torture.” These techniques continue to be employed against enemy combatants in Guantanamo and other military and CIA run facilities.

You have learned that several executives at a major company plan to take shortcuts on the production of products used by kids that could potentially result in deaths due to cancer or brain-damage due to lead. You are a taxi driver and one of the corporate executives gets into your car and says they want to go to the airport.

You have learned that a military veteran might be planning on blowing up the federal building in Oklahoma in the next few days. You are a local police officer and just heard a rumor of the attack. You pull over an army veteran and have no real evidence that they know anything but they are acting a bit nervous. You have a car battery and think you may be able to get them to talk if you hook it to their genitals.
