Striking Posters

These striking posters caught my eye while walking along Mary street in the Brisbane CBD. What looks like a gunshot wound on the guy’s forehead is actually a sticker that was placed there and is not part of the original poster (or at least it didn’t appear to be). At the bottom of the sticker is a website, 1everyminute.com which was a petition page set up by Amnesty International against the arms trade (the site has since been discontinued).
 
I was a little tempted to call or text one of the numbers to find out what it was all about, which is probably what the purpose was but I never did so remain curious. It certainly captures one’s attention though.
