Dirty Wars: On the Unacceptability of Torture — A Conversation

An activist who experienced torture in an Argentina prison in 1974 speaks out against the participation of U.S. military forces in similar acts at Iraq’s Abu Ghraib prison and at the U.S. detention center in Guantánamo. She concludes that the fight for human rights and social justice must be intensified, and that political institutions in which torture is forever banned must be established.
