Zero DB the silent protest
In the UK, Zero DB, a charity association against the use of music in torture has launched a website and online petition to drive awareness and claim attention around the issue. Even if the UN and the European Court of Human Rights have banned music torture, it seems that its use in secret prisons is getting more and more common.
The site features a silent protest by a series of celebrities (like actress Julie Christie) and common people who decided to join the project.
I must admit I didn’t know that playing ear splitting music for days and months, and this website really opened my eyes.
Also, if I have to look at it from a purely professional/digital point of view, I have to say that it is very well done. The online petition system is so 2.0, as you can upload your own video or photo to the site. They even provide you with the shooting instructions, even if it looks like not a lot of people until now wanted to upload something despite having signed the petition.
