"We Witness": A Panel on Digital Video, Social Media, & Political Protest at UC Berkeley
Peter Maiden
“See it — Film it — Change it” is a slogan of Witness, an NGO that has been around 20 years documenting human rights violations. Lawyers working for The New Media Advocacy Project recently presented Congress members with video of sexual violence in Haitian camps and won some assistance to the victims. The popular Ustream broadcast ground-level Hurricane Sandy coverage, giving a platform to citizen journalists. Rich Jones of Openwatch has a vision of smartphones recording the actions of law enforcement to the point cops become truly accountable to the public. And Ken Goldberg’s Rashoman Project offers a startling new technology for recording volatile protest situations.
