Abstract: This website was initiated by actor George Clooney and others. It offers real-time satellite pictures and is aimed at documenting and eventually preventing human rights abuses world wide. The hope is that perpetrators might be discouraged knowing that they get "watched". The website also offers reports from crisis regions. The idea came to life through Clooney's commitment during the Darfur crisis in Sudan. [editors ilissAfrica]
