The global screening started in Asia, with the 100 Million campaign in Japan hosting a screening in the national parliament building as well as in schools across the country. 100 Million Japan is aiming to get over 10,000 students actively engaged in the campaign – an incredible target for their first year!
Governments have also hosted screenings for their representatives in New Zealand and Fiji, with further screenings to be hosted by representatives for their local communities. Student-led screenings were also hosted in Pakistan, Taiwan, and Hong Kong.
Dr. Jiko Luveni, the Speaker of the Fijian Parliament, hosted a screening of The Price of Free and visited Vunimono Arya Primary School in Suva. During the visit, children from the school launched their own 100 Million campaign group!
100 Million Japan organised a screening in November 2018, hosted at the National Diet. Politicians attended alongside human rights campaigners and youth activists to watch The Price of Free and pledge their support to the national 100 Million campaign.
