“Reckoning with Torture”



Dramatic Reading of related documents in a film produced by CodePink, ACLU, The National Lawyers Guild & World Can’t Wait



In 2010 CodePink, ACLU, National Lawyers Guild, and World Cant Wait organized a week of

“Berkeley Says No to Torture.”


The culminating event of the week was a dramatic reading of various documents relating to torture by activists from around the world. We will show the video of this important and painful event, called “Reckoning with Torture” followed by up-dates on recent events by Susan Harman. As you know, in late December the Senate Intelligence Committee released a highly-redacted executive summary of its long-awaited 6,000-page torture report. We all need to become informed about what our “leaders” have done and are doing in our name, so we can hold them accountable.


Susan belongs Code Pink and has been actively opposing torture for at least a decade. She produced the “Reckoning” event. She also works with Strike Debt Bay Area and Commonomics USA to start public banks, postal banks, and workers’ coops.
