Global marketplace Everpress and Amnesty International have linked up to release a line of artist-led T-shirts designed to raise awareness about censorship.

With 50 young artists and designers tapped for the 50/50 Project, T-shirt contributors include the likes of Octavian, Liam Hodges, Dexter Navy and more.

Amnesty International UK Director Kate Allen explained via a press release, “Censorship is often the thin end of the wedge when it comes to human rights violations. Time and time again, we’ve seen cases of brave human rights defenders in repressive countries being subjected to censorship, then threatened and harassed, and then finally jailed or even killed.” She added, “We’re delighted to be working with Everpress and this incredible array of designers to raise awareness of the evils of censorship.”

As the world’s largest grassroots human rights organisation, Amnesty International works to organisation, investigate and expose abuses around the world.

50 per cent of the profits from T-shirt sales will be donated to charity, with the remaining 50 per cent distributed between the artists.
