Stop Slavery Now

Dear Sydney,

Dear Sydney,

I wanted to let you know we've just launched a campaign to take the story of Stolen (ISA: Odin's Eye) and slavery in Western Sahara to the world.

We would like your support in this campaign because we all know that slavery should be a thing of the past, a taboo that should come to light.

Violeta Ayala and Dan Fallshaw spent three years making Stolen and there is still so much to do to get the film out there. Unfortunately the film has faced a well organized political and media campaign to silence it and cover up the slavery.

Check it the campaign and please tell your friends, family and colleagues about it. If we all help we can bring this hidden taboo out into the open and give the black people living in the camps and Western Sahara and North Africa the chance to fight for their freedom.

We're planning a cinema release of Stolen in N.Y. and L.A., and everyone’s invited. This will get the story covered in the major U.S. media and qualify the film for the Academy Awards 2012.

We’ve only got a short time to get this done, if we don't do it by June we will miss this opportunity.

We need to pressure organisations like the UN to act.

Stolen has shown at more than 60 festivals worldwide, winning 12 awards along the way.

Take a look at the campaign page, and please support our work and most importantly tell others about it.

Thank you.
The Stolen Team
