Protest Psychologists' Participation in Torture
We now know that psychologists have helped to develop infamous U.S.
government torture techniques.
Other professional associations, such as the American Medical
Association and the American Psychiatric Association, have clearly
condemned the participation of their members in these activities -- but
the American Psychological Association has not. Instead, its leadership
has hedged, and the association has not taken action against a single
psychologist involved in developing these appalling methods of
interrogation. You can learn more on our blog
*Please join us to protest the A.P.A.'s complicity with the government's
Anti-torture rally at American Psychological Association convention
Saturday, Aug. 16, 12:00 - 2:00 p.m.
Boston Convention and Exhibition Center
Plaza at front entrance
415 Summer Street
The ACLU of Massachusetts is co-sponsoring this rally to let the
American Psychological Association leadership know that collaboration in
government-sponsored torture must not be tolerated. Psychology must once
again become a profession based upon fundamental ethical principles.
