    Egyptian activists launch "A Nation Without Torture" campaign


    Hundreds of Egyptian activists rallied in downtown Cairo against brutality and torture in prisons and police stations. This day marks the first anniversary of Essam Atta's death, who was tortured in prison till death. There are many other cases of torture before, during and after the revolution. Brutality and torture were the main reasons that sparked Egypt's January 25th revolution. Activists decided to launch a campaign to put an end to torture in Egypt. Families of victims took part in the rally. Graffiti artists painted Essam Atta's picture and other victims on the walls. Flyers were being handed to inform people about the cause. Also documentary films about tortue in Egypt were played.
