MTV's Exit Campaign

Okay, so I am not one to plug MTV much, if at all, but having seen Radiohead's video about child slavery/child labor, which was part of MTV's new Exit Campaign, I was intrigued and wanted to find out more.

The Exit Campaign's Website states that the program was designed to, "raise awareness and increase prevention of human trafficking in Europe and Asia. Since the campaign launched in 2004, MTV EXIT has created various programs and activities that informed and empowered millions of young people both from source and destination countries about the issue and take actions within their communities."

These words sound nice and genuine, but sometimes these programs end up being sounding boards that just make us feel good that we're at least thinking about doing something even if we're not really doing anything.

Nonetheless, I was convinced to link them after watching the Killers' music video they have posted on the front page. Not meant for younger viewers, but seriously, you need to watch this thing to the end. Very powerful.

Heartbreaking. Sin sucks. I would like to see one of those video's about teenagers looking at porn and how the girls in the videos have to shoot up or get drunk just to do what they do. I think it would turn some guys off to it. Thanks for putting this up.
