Abuse grows hatred. Torture is an affront to humanity and a crime. In addition, it feeds a cycle of violence, often engendering hatred not only among those who suffer directly but among entire communities. In places of detention ill-treatment and abuse is prevalent in many countries. The ICRC has produced a new TV spot and print ad to support its efforts to prevent torture and other forms of ill-treatment.
