Angry faces

Doctors Without Borders (AZG) launched a new campaign a few weeks (months?) ago, with messages in a bottle as a motif. During the four-day Werchter music festival they extended their campaign, and gave people the opportunity to express their anger at the injustice in the world as far as access to medical care and poverty in general are concerned. A "best of" selection of every festival day is now available on http://www.noodkreten.be/.

Maybe it's me, but the large majority of these festivalgoers end up half-smiling in their shot, looking wide-eyed, surprised or just plain confused. Turns out people, especially those who are enjoying live music, are really bad at making an angry face. That might just be the best news I've heard all day.

The campaign is about the situation of women’s in humanitarian crisis. If you understand French or Dutch, have a look at the stories in the other bottles on the site.

For those who want to know more - and can read Dutch - I went back to the site and found out there's another blog linked to it: http://www.noodkreten.be/blog/.
