Truro women working to end non-state torture
Lynn Curwin March 14, 2017
....In the Canadian Criminal Code there’s no law against ‘non-state torture.’ While some feel aggravated assault is suitable for dealing with such cases, the women disagree.
“Without saying it in words they’re pretty well saying that non-state torture is not as important as state torture,” said MacDonald. “People wouldn’t feel it fit to call state torture assault.”
There are places, including France, Queensland (Australia) and California, that have brought in legislation addressing non-state torture.
“There are no centres for rehabilitation for the survivors; that’s something that’s lacking all over the world,” said MacDonald. “We’re making some progress and we’ll keep at it until there’s a shift.”
She and Sarson formed Persons Against Non-State Torture and address issues including trafficking and ritual abuse-torture.
They don’t think people understand that non-state torture isn’t something that only happens in third world countries or large cities.
“It’s happening around us,” added MacDonald. “No country has evolved enough that we’re not harming one another and there’s no such thing as a day off when you’re an activist.” http://www.trurodaily.com/news/local/2017/3/14/truro-women-working-to-end-non-state-torture.html
