Don't Sleepwalk Out of Your Rights!

The United Kingdom recently considered passing laws that would enable the gov to detain terrorism suspects for 42 days without a trial.

To give ordinary people an emotional education on what the law would mean, Amnesty International launched "Sleepwalking," an eerie spot that depicts citizens crawling out of their beds late at night and in a kind of stupor. Together they walk into a holding facility and file themselves in separate cells, still more asleep than awake.

The ad admonishes people not to "sleepwalk into" this anti-terrorism bill, which in freedom's name would infringe on citizens' rights.

Slow-moving and unpleasant, but it's powerful that way. By production company DarkFibre. Voiceover by Christopher Eccleston. Learn more at Protect the Human.
