"A #TortureFreeWorld is a world where personal freedom is a virtue, as is social enhancement. Where religions do not promote violence, nor do they promote torture as a virtue. Where governments that torture do not have the support of the international community, and where the word 'torture' doesn't have a definition in peoples' minds."
Feras Fawzi, Jeddah
