Stand here if you're against the death penalty

‘Ensemble Contre la Peine de Mort’, a French charity against the death penalty, has set up an interactive installation in the François Mitterrand library in Paris. Visitors are asked to stand between two screens; one has a soldier, the other a victim. By standing in between, the soldier is unable to shoot. Visitors can then scan a QR code and quickly sign an online petition against the death penalty.
