“Justin Bieber is the future of Rock and Roll” says a broken Iggy Pop, Godfather of Punk. The copy: “Torture a man and he’ll say anything. Torture is not just inhumane, it’s ineffective. Stop it.”
This campaign for Amnesty Belgium is being shared on Facebook and posters in train stations. The mixture of brutal imagery and irony is certainly a shock factor, but it does get the point across.
Below, The Dalai Lama says that “A man who doesn’t own a Rolex by age 50 has wasted his life” and Karl Lagerfeld says “A Hawaiian shirt and flip-flops are the height of elegance.”

This animated campaign explains the choice given to Emma, an EU voter, in the May elections. Emma faces an important choice between candidates who oppose her friends’ rights, or who care about both Emma and her community.
The campaign comes from ILGA-Europe (International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans & Intersex Association) and The European Network Against Racism (ENAR).
Evelyne Paradis, ILGA-Europe: “This is the first time two organisations like ours unite at this level. We speak for over a thousand organisations who firmly believe that discriminating against one minority affects everyone negatively.”
“We’re telling voters from all walks of life that more equality and more justice are within reach, but to achieve that, they must vote in May.”
Many candidates for the European Parliament hold very strong views about diversity and LGBT rights. That is the reason for this campaign. That you make a conscious choice if you find equality important.
The campaign will be shared widely on social media in 12 languages in the run-up to the May elections. It contains a video and infographics.
The hashtag is #NoHateEP2014.
