Recently, a series of photos that seemingly come from Amnesty International has been drawing attention in China. These photos became prominent for seemingly winning a bronze lion prize for the TBWA agency at the Cannes International Advertising Festival. The photos included three Olympic ‘ sports’ (swimming, weightlifting and archery) to highlight the abuse of prisoners in China. You can click on the photos above to access the high-resolution ones.
The words at the bottom righthand side of the photos are:
AFTER THE OLYMPIC GAMES,
THE FIGHT FOR HUMAN RIGHTS MUST GO ON.
Amnesty International released yesterday some viral animations (you can find them at the bottom of the post) highlighting the repression of peaceful protesters and the case of Huang Qi, a cyber-dissident who runs the www.64tianwang.com website. Huang Qi has been detained since 10 June when several men found him at a restaurant in Chengdu and forced him into a vehicle and too him and two of his organization volunteers. Since then there no news of him and it is believed that he is in a very high risk of torture.
The number 64 on his web address is referring to the 4th day of the 6h month of 1989 when the authorities turned their guns onto peacefull protesters in Tiananmen Square.
