Fight against Abstention!

Every ballot counts - may sure you vote!
1'00" 20 June 2018 Universidade Lusófona Lisbon, Portugal

This video was made by film students at the Universidade Lusófona in Lisbon, Portugal. Not your typical Tug of War, this video showcases a battle against abstention. A battle in which everyone, regardless of their background, unites to vote. With a final tug, they enjoy the privilege of dropping their vote in the ballot box. The warriors of this video demonstrate the political power the public has, in uniting as a common force against abstention, and shaping their government.

We want to hear from you! - sens us your videos
