No Dia Internacional de Apoio às Vítimas da Tortura, prestamos homenagem às vítimas da tortura e de outros tratamentos cruéis, desumanos ou degradantes. Numa altura em que o mundo está a unir esforços para superar a pandemia de COVID-19, os direitos humanos devem permanecer no centro da nossa batalha. Neste dia, damos voz às centenas de milhares de pessoas que foram vítimas de tortura e a todos aqueles que ainda hoje são torturados.
The ‘Global Goal: Unite For Our Future' campaign launched by the Commission and the international advocacy organisation Global Citizen on 28 May will culminate in a global pledging summit and concert on Saturday 27 June. The aim is to mobilise additional funding to develop and deploy coronavirus vaccines, tests and treatments. Access to vaccines everywhere, for everyone who needs them, will enable the world to overcome this pandemic and avoid another.It will also help rebuild communities impacted by the pandemic in a fair and just way.
This year, World Refugee Day comes at a time when the world is facing a global pandemic that has already cost the lives of thousands of people and is affecting the livelihood of millions more. The struggle is even harder for refugees, internally displaced persons, migrants and stateless persons. With limited or no access to medical care and protection mechanisms, these people are more vulnerable to the effects of this global crisis.
Vulnerable populations, including refugees, are at the heart of the Team Europe response to the COVID-19 crisis. On World Refugee Day 2020, the EU reaffirms its commitment to a world where nobody would need asylum
