An interview covering how she got started as a blogger, the issues that are most important to her, and a new crop Yemeni women bloggers.
The fact that 72 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute is astonishing. And the immense amounts of footage shot and uploaded by citizens in places like Syria, Egypt and Chile reminds us that video is increasingly being used to expose human rights abuses. As more activists turn towards video for advocacy and evidentiary purposes, there is a critical need for accessible training resources that teach how to create and share videos safely, effectively and ethically.
We have been watching events unfold in Egypt through hundreds of videos and photos of people standing-up for freedom and caring for the injured to violent battles and a police van rushing through crowds of citizens, hitting and sending some of them feet in the air. If there ever was a doubt about the power of video to document and shine a spotlight on abuses, I think we can agree that doubt has been shattered.
