Finnish bands rock against torture
In Pori, Tampere, Turku and Jyväskylä the two bands will be joined by indie group Sister Flo and in Oulu and Rovaniemi by Moses Hazy from Tornio. In Helsinki, the third group on the bill will be Sweatmaster.
Through the No Torture Here! campaign the human rights organisation hopes to get wide public support for its demand that the United States, the European Union and Finland take an active stance against the use of torture. According to Amnesty, terrorism can only be overcome if human rights are respected, and human rights’ violations in the so-called “war on terror” only make the world more insecure.
Concert visitors can sign an appeal against torture. Amnesty International will present the results of the campaign to Finnish Prime Minister Matti Vanhanen and the US Embassy to Finland.
