The Wheel of Justice is a 12 hour call to action in support of torture survivors in the Philippines by Amnesty International. Featuring displays and actions, it provides an interactive space for people to learn more about torture, encouraging them to participate in a photo petition to be sent to President Aquino. Their aim is to collect 1000 photos, messages and signatures from the Wellington community, encouraging effective investigations, robust prosecutions, and an independent police complaints commission established to help end the use of torture.
The Wheel of Justice project is run by the Wellington Regional Amnesty International team. “We volunteer our time because the Amnesty International movement believes "it is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness".” More information here.
