27 Million

BY AMY HEAGUE
@ VOL 2 ON JUN 26, 2014

“Not only is each victim the one, but we likewise can be the one.

The one called, the one listening, the one willing, the one sent to bring freedom and justice to innocent ones who are suffering. Being overwhelmed by the numbers is an indulgence the oppressed can ill afford.”

The statistics and numbers are overwhelming. There are currently an estimated 27 million men women & children held in slavery across the globe. Hundreds of thousands are trafficked across international borders every year. Many young girls find themselves trapped in a hell most of us could never imagine… The overwhelming statistics took Amy Heague to Cambodia. The one made her see she can do something that might just change the numbers.

"Presentation of the Day" on August 28, 2014.

BY AARON ANFINSON
@ VOL 27 ON MAY 25, 2016

Aaron Anfinson shares his experience of photographing the Umbrella Revolution as it unfolded over nearly 3 months in the autumn of 2015 in Hong Kong. What began as a series of peaceful sit-in street protests - against the proposed reforms to the Hong Kong electoral system and the pre-screening of candidates for the Chief Executive election in 2017 - escalated to include more than 100,000 protesters occupying key areas in Admiralty, Causeway Bay and Mong Kok punctuated by violent clashes between students, triads and riot gear clad police armed with batons and tear gas. Anfinson's beat poetry inflected voice sets the scene for his intense emotional images.

Momentum of Movement

BY AVRINA PRABALA-JOSLIN
@ VOL 7 ON MAY 09, 2017

In an emotional speech, Avrina Joslin makes a strong point, to why everyone should be a feminist:

What does it mean to be an anti-homosexual? What does it mean to be an anti-feminist? Can personal opinions or thoughts without activism affect the momentum of movements? But, freedom of expression you say? Well, thoughts have a way of spreading...
