June 26th Is United Nations International Day In Support Of Victims Of Torture

The United Nations’ (UN) International Day in Support of Victims of Torture is annually observed on June 26 to support the victims of torture and to remind that human torture is a crime and something unacceptable in a modern society.

Say No to Torture - Don’t stay blind folded from your rights!


On June 26, 1987, the Convention against Torture was set up to ensure human rights and acknowledge that torture and inhuman treatment of fellow human beings is illegal. In 1997 the United Nations General Assembly decided to observe June 26 each year as the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture.  During this day all governments and members of civil society are encouraged to take action against torture and its perpetrators all over the world.


The United Nations’ logo that features a world map (less Antarctica) centered on the North Pole, enclosed by olive branches is often associated with the promotional material for this event.

How to observe

Rehabilitation centers and human rights organizations observe this day by voicing their opinions against human torture. This day makes a great occasion to spread awareness about the day or to plan fund raising activities for the victims. Organizations, including the International Rehabilitation Council for Torture Victims and Amnesty International play a major role in organizing events around the world to promote the day by organizing photo exhibitions; community events and mass media advertisement among others.

Human rights organizations, businesses and social and community organizations can join this social cause by handing out imprinted gifts that proclaim this message to spread awareness and raise funds for the victims.
