Stonewall aim to eliminate and discrimination. Their new advert, narrated by Sir Ian McKellen, focuses on hateful words.

In an effort to cut out the use of hateful words, Stonewall have released this advert which demonstrates a cycle of hatred. With this film, narrated by Sir Ian McKellen, Stonewall are inviting everyone to "join the No Bystanders movement and take a stand". They have also released an accompanying hashtag, #NoBystanders, and website.

"Abuse ruins people’s lives. We all have a responsibility to take a stand and put a stop to it."

Ruth Hunt, the acting chief executive of Stonewall, explained the motives behind the campaign. "This powerful film starkly shows how easily prejudice and bullying can escalate from playground teasing to grown-up violence. No one can afford to be a bystander to this bullying and that is why we are calling on people to make the pledge: hear it, stop it."
