Inspired (again) by Nicholas Kristoff article = this one about Ryan Boyette and his citizen journalism project earsandeysnuba.org. It hasn’t launched yet but looking around led me to other witness projects.
Satellite Sentinel Project: George Clooney initiated the Satellite Sentinel Project (SSP) while on an October 2010 trip to Southern Sudan with Enough Project Co-founder John Prendergast. SSP combines satellite imagery analysis and field reports with Google’s Map Maker technology to deter the resumption of war between North and South Sudan. The project provides an early warning system to deter full-scale civil war between Northern and Southern Sudan and to promote greater accountability for mass atrocities by focusing world attention and generating rapid responses on human rights and human security concerns.
I’ll be adding more to this.
