Make the call

Posted by Tom Megginson | 12-08-2010 20:51 | Category: Violence



In the spirit of last year’s successful interactive YouTube campaign against knife violence by droptheweapons.org, “Choose a Different Ending”, The
London Metropolitan Police have posted this video to put the viewer in the shows of a witness to domestic violence:

“999”, for those who don’t know, is the British “911”

(more after jump)


According to the Metropolitan Police Service, “Overall the campaign seeks to demonstrate that bystanders can stop domestic violence by dramatising the immediate effect of a 999 call, or if they choose not to take action, remind them of the potentially devastating consequences. Nearly one in five murders in London are accounted for by domestic violence.”

There is also a poster campaign:
