How to raise people’s conscience

Watch this! The sound of monks chanting in the background make it even more moving.

In 2010, Burma held its first elections in 20 years. As part of its campaign to help free Burma’s 2,100 political prisoners, Human Rights Watch created a giant installation at New York’s Grand Central Station. Consisting of hundreds of prison cells, a closer look reveals that the cells bars are actually pens. Visitors could remove the pens to symbolically free the prisoners and then use the pen to sign a petition calling for the release of these innocent prisoners.
