Amnesty International is launching a series of four animated films highlighting human rights abuses linked to the Chinese authorities hosting of the Olympic Games, in particular the risks of peacefully protesting in China.
This first film, called "torchure", shows a cute animated character being brutally beaten with an elctro-shock baton by Chinese security forces for protesting about human rights.
The baton is then handed to another character who uses it to light the Olympic flame at Beijing's Olympic stadium.
Amnesty is protesting for Ye Guozhu, who was imprisoned and reportedly tortured with elctro-shock batons after he protested at forced evictions in Beijing.
