the aseerun project
The aseerun project is a compilation of many years of effort on the part of various NGOs and individuals to document and bring attention to the policy of abuse and denigration during inhumane, more than often illegal, incarceration applied in the name of freedom, counter-terrorism or democracy.
The site and its various components appeals to humanity on three levels:
The informative resources of past and ongoing atrocities against prisoners of the so-called ‘War on Terror,’ continuously expanded upon, serve the purpose of precipitating enlightenment, dialogue, and igniting indignation within the global community.
Equipped with the knowledge, tools, and passion for justice, the aseerun project hopes that the people will be moved to take action, politically challenging and socially supportive, as well as to create and broaden the scope of the discussion on human rights in general and more specifically prisoner rights.
The expression of the oppressed through many mediums, both modern and classical, bridges the intellectual gap between the ideological discourse of prisoner rights and the human reality of suffering. This art is simultaneously the mechanism of documentation, coping, healing, and often the sole method of communication with the outside world, if and when they are allowed such liberties.
