Vivienne Westwood explains her, uh, roots in activism in a new Amnesty PSA film urging justice for Azza Hilal Ahmad Suleiman. "I do remember the first time I tried to help somebody," she explains. "I hadn't been at school very long and in the playground there was this little boy that nobody talked to. He was in his own little world. Just alienated. He was very dirty and smelly and nobody played with him. I just thought this was so unfair. It was not his fault that his mother didn't look after him. I announced to everybody that he was my boyfriend and the poor child was terrified. It's important to help other people, more than anything it's human." And that's your Vivienne Westwood life lesson of the day.
