Happy First Anniversary Witness' Human Rights Channel!
Last year, the intrernational human rights organization WITNESS launched a special channel dedicated to curate, verify and amplify videos on human rights abuses shot by citizen journalists all over the world. Many of these stories would otherwise have been buried. Over the past year, WITNESS' Human Rights Channel has curated 137 playlists, with 1,892 videos from 90 countries.
WITNESS is an international nonprofit organization that has been using the power of video and storytelling for 20 years to open the eyes of the world to human rights abuses. It was co-founded in 1992 by musician and human rights advocate Peter Gabriel, Human Rights First and the Reebok Human Rights Foundation.
