Hard Lines

Taken in July 2017 near the old Scorpio Books location I can't work out if these are new Christchurch buildings or ones that survived the quake.

They Want You To Ignore This Film

I support* two agencies that are trying to make this world a better place - Greenpeace and Amnesty International - one is "foreign aid", the other is "focused closer to home" in the sense that Greenpeace is for everything on this planet including fallow deer, gekko, barn owls and eels.

Amnesty International is closer to home for me - it focuses on humans on this planet.
Dear Unsubscriber,

Torturers, traffickers, executioners, rapists, THEY all want you to STOP READING NOW.

Warning: Some viewers may find this film disturbing

A man in Algeria who tortures people by forced ingestion of urine to simulate drowning.
A businessman in eastern Europe who sells women to the sex trade.
A general in Burma who uses soldiers to silence monks.
A militiaman in Sudan who wages war by raping women.

THEY are all real people. THEY are all going about their business as you read this email.

And THEY all share one hope: that you DON'T WATCH THIS FILM.

DEFY THEM.

A lot of people are hoping you won't watch this film. But many more are hoping you will.

Sincerely,

Tom Fyans
Head Of Campaigns

P.S. DEFY THE ABUSERS and forward this email to your friends and family. If you're on Facebook you can also change your status update to say " is defying those who don't want you to watch this film: www.amnesty.org.uk/defythem
