Amnesty Chop Pencils

Here’s something serious to offset our general frivolity. Saatchi & Saatchi launched a campaign, placing chopsticks that were pencils in various Chinese restaurants. The aim was to get people writing about human rights in China. Here’s the text from the pack in full:

“Tuck under thumb and hold firmly. Write the Chinese government to help end torture. Take further action at amnesty.org/china. Don’t let human rights violations by the Chinese government give China a bad name.” (Found by James)
