The American Psychological Association votes prohibits its members from working in settings where “persons are held outside of, or in violation of, either International Law (e.g., the U.N. Convention Against Torture and the Geneva Conventions) or the U.S. Constitution, where appropriate,” unless they represent a detainee or an independent third party. A welcome development, but with a vote of 8,792 to 6,157 in favor (58.8%) hardly "massive" (41.2% voted against the resolution, and are presumably OK with the current situation...)
