Public Witness Against Torture

Following President Bush's veto of the Intelligence Authorization Act passed by both houses of Congress, a public witness event was held on March 10, 2008, in Upper Senate Park near the U.S. Capitol. Speakers from several sponsoring organizations protested the veto of a bill which would have put an end to U.S. sponsored torture. Marie Lucey , OSF, LCWR associate director for social mission, spoke on behalf of LCWR, a member of the National Religious Coalition Against Torture, one of the sponsors.
