Amnesty International, White Christmas
Amnesty International's Christmas campaign was focused on one simple concept - the immediate parallel between the White Christmas we long for in Ireland with the images of white dust and destruction that have emerged from Syria.
Pieced together from real footage from the conflict by Vinny Beirne, this hard hitting piece was graded by Aaron Carroll and finished by Ian Jacobs here at Windmill Lane.
“For too long the world, in particular the UN Security Council, has watched from the side-lines as civilians have been slaughtered on a daily basis. The global inaction in the face of such inhumanity is shameful. The need for a dramatic overhaul of the UN Security Council is painfully clear. With every civilian death in Syria the message gets louder: we must act now. We must stand up for the protection of civilians and demand respect for international law. We must not accept the wilful destruction of lives, communities and a country. With your support, we can expose these horrific human rights abuses and demand that perpetrators be held to account.
