Ad Campaign by Amnesty International Switzerland

This is amazing
This is all very true, and developed nations SHOULD think about the violence happening all over the world, since their countries are often the ones causing, committing, or fueling that violence, whether with economic demands or direct meddling.
What I’m afraid of, since this predominantly shows PoC, is that the conclusion white viewers will come to is that PoC live in brutal, violent, uncivilized places, because they are brutal, violent, uncivilized people—the very thought that brought this kind of violence to the places where they lived.
People in developed nations, especially white people, need to think about this, and they also need to think about who’s causing it, and be willing to see their own complicitness with it.
But more importantly, everyone needs to stop thinking of their country as a place where systemic violence doesn’t happen. Because I guarantee you, it does. You have police? You have police brutality. You have prisons? You have torture. You have agriculture? You have exploitation, labor abuse, and slavery. You have manufacturing? You have more exploitation and labor abuse, and sweatshops. You have immigrants? Of course you do. And your country treats them like shit. Some of them are slaves. Some of them are forced into sex work. You have poverty? Don’t lie, you have poverty. You have child poverty. You have homeless, you have hungry. And this isn’t even getting into the shit individuals do to each other, this is just the systemic stuff.
It IS happening here, and it is happening now.
"u can’t fight hate with MORE HATE that’s just Plain Wrong :((((( all u need is love"

50 Days of Doctor Who 50th - October 23: Who is your otp?
The second Doctor & Jamie McCrimmon
They have a habit of, well, clinging. And holding hands. And being generally sweet and caring with each other. Their relationship, romantic or not, is (part) of what makes Jamie such a great companion to me.
