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 
torture regime:*

    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.
