Amnesty International, a global movement of ordinary people standing up for human rights, is a cause understood and supported by only a small few in our country.

Through sheer luck, New Zealand affords us the freedom to say what we’re thinking, to wear what we want, to choose our own friends.

To launch their new positioning – “Protect the Human” – and to raise awareness of their work, Amnesty want ordinary New Zealanders to experience what it might be like to live without basic human rights.

Amnesty are launching Trial by Timeline – a Facebook application that scans your Timeline and shows what your comments or behaviours might cost you in countries around the world, just for being you.
