One for Amnesty International

U2’s One will be used in an advertisement for Amnesty International UK, the first one since the human rights organisation was banned from broadcast advertising in 1994, because their ads were thought ‘of a political nature’. Amnesty appealed and the ban was lifted in 1999.

The ad, by Kitcatt Nohr / Alexander Shaw, features “real-life footage of people being reunited to the soundtrack of the U2 song ‘One’ with a voice-over by actor Jeremy Irons.” (source: u2world.com)

  1. AI “too political”?

    AI is supposed to be APOLITICAL, left of right and right of left.

    Alas, in the Melbourne Australia office, AI has been taken over by people involved with the International Socialists and it’s all become Anti-Capitalist Anti-America Anti-Authority, which shames me. What was a beautiful idea has become twisted by Leftist idiocy (which is slightly better than Right Wing idiocy, but still not to be desired).

    I was attracted to AI because of its apolitical stance, a place where people of all persuasions and leanings could meet for a common cause — the fight against human rights abuses no matter who is the offender.

    Seems some people have lost sight, or deliberately ignored, the roots of AI’s ideals.

  3. “One” was also one of David Bloom’s favorite songs, they used it in a montage on the Today show yesterday, in his memory.

  5. Monday April 7, I had a private conference with a paster from my church. I had told some women to mind their own business. It was none of their business what Doctor I was seeing. I have a good MD. The women did things behind my back. The paster did not want to do anything about the situation. It was very bad what the women had done. I was really feeling betrayed. So the paster could have worked with me, and done the right thing. So I was praying. I had opened my eyes. There were two Sheriff’s men standing
    right in front of me. I said this is very backwards what you people do to others in this state. I could never do what you people do, it is not right. The two men had yelled at me and said we do not care what you think. If you do not leave at once you will be arrested. I said ok I Will go. I had marched to the door, and said I have more Pride than you all. I left the church.
