Strange Sign, Surprising Result

Xiamen University students recently made a survey at a cross road near the university campus, a section where a pedestrian walking bridge was built over a busy intersection.

The test was to see how people reacted towards different types of notice board. They designed 3 notice boards with different content,  displaying them in turn for few days, and in between there would be some days with no notice board at all.


The results below show how many people still crossed the road, not choosing to use the walking bridge despite the signs:


No notice board 69.78%
"Please use walking bridge" 70.02%
"It only takes 9.4 seconds more to use the walking bridge" 60.97%
"You ugly if you cross the road" 41.12%


Australian Premiere of 'Free China: The Courage to Believe' PDF Print E-mail
Global Stage
China Uncensored   

The Australian premiere of the award-winning film FREE CHINA: THE COURAGE TO BELIEVE will be held in Sydney in November.

The fates of a woman living in Beijing and a man living in New York become inextricably linked because of a common conviction. This remarkably moving film exposes the widespread human rights violations taking place in China and the efforts by people of conscience to end the persecution and abuse. It raises awareness regarding freedom of speech, freedom of belief, information censorship, forced labour and international corporations' unethical conduct.

Supported by: Australian Lawyers For Human Rights, The Australian Tibet Council and HRAFF (Human Rights Arts & Film Festival).
