In Activism, Human Rights on 2009/12/07 at 01:13

It all began with the story. After being in jail for 27 years based primarily on his political beliefs, Nelson Mandela became the first democratically elected president in South Africa. I had the honor of playing Nelson Mandela in the new film “Invictus”. And believe the powerful story like this inspire millions of people. We all accept that it is only through the effort of dedicated people coming together that human rights will continued to be protected.

That’s why this month, I’m working with Amnesty International and YouTube to shine a light onto the important work done by human rights organizations around the world. But we need your help to tell the stories. We want you to make a video that explains how your favorite human rights organization has advanced the movement and inspires you to stand up for others. We select the top 3 winners, and these will be featured on YouTube homepage at the end of the month. So, go ahead, tell us your best human rights story.

YouTube: Video Volunteers

Join Morgan Freeman to Bring Human Rights Work to Light
アムネスティーYouTubeブログ: モーガン・フリーマンと一緒に人権保護活動に光を当てよう

YouTube can be a powerful tool championing the rights of individuals and promoting free expression. This month, during International Human Rights Day, YouTube is partnering with Morgan Freeman and Amnesty International to encourage you to become advocates for equality and justice, through Video Volunteers.
YouTubeは個人のキャンペーン活動や自由な表現の道具として素晴らしい力を持っています。12月は国際人権の日(12月10日)の月。YouTubeはモーガン・フリーマンと国際アムネスティーと組み、あなたへのキャンペーンを行います。Video Volunteersを使って、平等と正義のための声をあげて欲しいのです。

Here’s how you can help. Create a video about the nonprofit of your choice working on a human rights issue that you care about — it could be genocide, human trafficking, refugee protection, gender equality or something else -and submit it to the Video Volunteers channel by December 21. Amnesty International and Freeman, who plays legendary crusader Nelson Mandela in the upcoming movie Invictus, will select three videos to appear on the YouTube homepage at the end of the month.
やり方はこうです。あなたが気にかけている人権問題のために活動している非利益団体について、ビデオを作って下さい。民族殺戮、人身売買、難民問題、性の平等など。12月21日までにVideo Volunteersにビデオを投稿してください。その中から、国際アムネスティーとモーガン・フリーマンが三つの作品を選びます。

This is your chance to help citizens around the world who often can’t help themselves and to bring the vital work of human rights organizations to light. Join Morgan Freeman to protect the rights of these individuals at


From director Clint Eastwood, Invictus tells the inspiring true story of how Nelson Mandela (Morgan Freeman) joined forces with the captain of South Africa’s rugby team, Francois Pienaar (Matt Damon), to help unite their country.

Newly elected President Mandela knows his nation remains racially and economically divided in the wake of apartheid. Believing he can bring his people together through the universal language of sport, Mandela rallies South Africa’s underdog rugby team as they make an unlikely run to the 1995 World Cup Championship match.
