Here is a Danish campaign poster published by the NGO Amnesty International. The poster displays a living tree trapped in barb wire.

This poster was commissioned to highlight the year of prisoners of conscience in 1977.

A "prisoner of conscience" is a term commonly used to describe an individual who is imprisoned or detained solely because of their political, religious, or ideological beliefs, nonviolent expression of their opinions, or their identity. The concept was popularized by Amnesty International, a prominent human rights organization.

Amnesty International is a international NGO who aims "to document and act to prevent serious violations of human rights" and they do so by putting pressure on governments who does not live up the Universal Declaration of Human Rights written by The United Nations. But Amnesty International also hosts campaigns and back in the 1980s posters like this one could be seen in the streetscape.
