The Convention against Torture
 

26 June was the day that the Convention against Torture came into force. It was also the day that the United Nations Charter was signed – the first international instrument to embody obligations for Member States to promote and encourage respect for human rights.

  1. Hi,
    drug abuse is really a great problem for us. it is spoiling the teenagers and young adults. recovering from drug addiction is also very hard. so the best way is to keep away from drugs. we all have to come forward to stop drug abuse. we must work to corner the local drug dealers. we must keep drugs out of our streets.

    26th june is the international day against drug abuse and illicit drug trafficking. i’ve posted an article on that day. I hope you come and share your views on that post.
