See it, film it change it
I came across the Witness.org site which aims to give a voice to those not usually included in global dialogues by giving access to video and online technologies which allow them to tell their own story.
Here is a great video about how to get started with a video and issues to think about. Click here for a PDF download of the ideas covered.
Click here to see a video offering lots of practical tips on how to use a video camera to its best advantage for those of us unfamiliar with the technology.
Finally here is a video of musician and activist Peter Gabriel at TED Talks sharing his very personal motivation for standing up for human rights with the watchdog group WITNESS and tells stories of citizen journalists in action.
