Amnesty International is using satellite cameras to monitor highly vulnerable villages in war-torn Darfur, Sudan. The human rights organisation is inviting ordinary people worldwide to monitor 12 villages by visiting the Eyes on Darfur project website and put the Sudanese Government on notice that these and other areas in the region are being watched around the clock.
Technology is good for something after all.
Speaking of Instant Karma.
Later this month, Amnesty International is set to launch the CD “Instant Karma: The Amnesty International Campaign to Save Darfur,” a collection of iconic John Lennon songs recorded by best-selling artists to support its efforts on Darfur and inspire a new generation of human rights activists through music.
