Today marks the UN International Day in Support of Victims of Torture and, to mark the event, Irish organisation Spirasi have joined with a huge number of well-known names to highlight the horrendous treatment some Irish immigrants have suffered before arriving to our shores.

Be warned, this video is as distressing as it is poignant.

Over 50% of all Irish migrants have suffered torture. That's horrendous. For more information you can visit Spirasi's website here.
