NORTH CAROLINA STOP TORTURE NOWPO Box 12707
Raleigh, NC 27605
(eveings and weekends, or messages during business hours)
SAVE THE DATE:
Anti-torture activists will meet at the new Johnston County Airport Terminal to continue calls for torture accountability.
The Johnston County Airport is located at 3149 Swift Creek Road Smithfield, NC and is home to Aero Contractors, Ltd.
Aero Contractors is a nominally private air charter that acted as a torture taxi service, providing the CIA with aircraft and flight crew responsible for flying more than 130 men to secret detetnion and torture chambers in nations such as Morroco, Egypt and Syria, or at "black sites" operated by the CIA in facilities located in former Soviet-bloc nations, such as Poland.
Reliable sources say that Aero Contractors is specifically named in the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence report on the interrogation, transfer and torture of CIA detainees during the post-9/11 era. It is yet unclear whether the report will be released before Congress recesses until the mid-term eletions. If it has not been released we will continue to pressure the Senate and administration to make the findings public.
Immediately following the demonstration for torture accountability, activists will work to clean-up Swift Creek Road as part of our group's regular participation in the Adopt-a-Highway program.
JOIN US at our Next Meeting:
2-4 p.m., Sunday, October 12, 2014
New Resource for NC Activists
OrganizeNorthCarolina.org seeks to foster that sort of mutual support and solidarity, to help our various groups to think of themselves as part of a larger movement. Then we all can give strength to and draw strength from the movement.
