Witness – Videos to Hold People Accountable December 10, 2006Posted by Unreasonable in Matters Cinematic, Matters Democratic.
Peter Gabriel gave a talk at TED about Witness, the human rights organization he cofounded 1992. It’s a similar idea to Video the Vote. Witness is providing video cameras to people in troubled areas of the world to help them defend themselves by exposing injustice. The organization started in 1992, but he said it didn’t get much traction until the Rodney King footage made news.
