Graphic, emotional anti-mining campaign via The Philippines.

(click ads, via)
It isn't often that literal visuals work. It worked with these Gold Lion-winning "save the animals" ads, and it works here. (Especially the cute mouse deer. The other two animals are a Pangolin anteater and a Dugong.). The southern part of Palawan Island, inhabited by indigenous tribal people, is being mined by several large corporations. Here's the organization's facebook page; unfortunately, as of this post, their signature page (don't click it) seems to have been hijacked by scammers. Here's more information on the crisis.
Ad agency: DM9 JaymeSyfu, Manila.

I hate to say this, but this new campaign pales in comparison to the Save the Animals campaign. Unlike you, I don't find it emotional or even graphic. The dugong ad doesn't work for me. The other two are nicely done (=good Photoshop work).
