Stopping Torture, Murder and Mayhem - Powerful Ads from Around the World

6. DOMESTIC VIOLENCE (Spain)

 

The following print ad from Amnesty International addresses the topic of domestic violence.

7. PRISONS (Germany)


The ad says "This is just a duplicate. The original hangs in a prison cell somewhere in China, Indonesia or the Middle East. Without witnesses. Without hope. Help us to stop this happening. www.amnesty-international.de"

This sculpture hung in the Museum of Fine Arts Mannheim, Germany. Amnesty wanted people to experience more about a subject which is often avoided.


8. NO CHILDREN SOLDIERS (Greece)

Here's an ad for the Childrens' Rights cause, trying to bring awareness of children and the impact of war. Ad reads "No Arms to Children Please".

 

 

9. IT'S NOT HAPPENING HERE, BUT IT'S HAPPENING NOW (Switzerland)

 

This series of outdoor ads has gained global recognition for their efforts to promote awareness of the horrors around the world.

 

10. FREEDOM OF SPEECH

 

This ad reads "Do not let anyone deprive human rights defenders of their freedom of speech."



11. WRITE FOR FREEDOM (Malaysia)

 

A simple pencil emphasizes what the power of writing can do.

Are the lockers real?

Are those lockers/storage bins real? I mean they risk someone pulling out the 'cutouts'. Great ads BTW, they're very thought provoking to say the least - if only we had some of those over here in North America.
