"Artwork is instrumental to challenge tyrants and oppressions throughout the histories. Those images are like loudspeakers that resonating the spirit of those longing for freedom and justice. Indeed, a painting cannot free people from the claws of the oppressor. However, that painting might lighten up tens, perhaps hundreds people to see the injustice that eroding our society. In addition, persuade those people to stand up, and take action to change this world – to be a better place with equality and fairness."
 
Amnesty International Thailand cordially invites you to visit a global exhibition “Change this world! 50 years of poster for Amnesty International (1961-2011)” to commemorate the 50th Anniversaries of Amnesty International – a volunteer-based international organization working to protect and defend human rights worldwide.

This people’s will is timeless and beyond frontier.
