Amnesty International Portugal and advertising agency Leo Burnett Iberia have launched TyrannyBook, a social network dedicated to the surveillance of some of the world's worst violators of human rights. As the name implies, the website is a Facebook clone, and looks almost exactly the same, with the familiar blue giving way to an aggressive red.

TyrannyBook is part of Amnesty International’s plan of getting more involved in social networks, both to gain the visibility inherent to these web platforms and to facilitate the contact between the causes it promotes and the public. The network aims to generate a global consciousness about the countless atrocities that take place across the globe.
