Hi Avi, this is a great inspiration showing that giving people a space to post things anonymously online grants a huge sense of freedom and solidarity. It would be interesting in the concepting phase to consider if an anonymous site could be created for people to anonymously report an unlawful detention (in the UK this exists for crime http://www.crimestoppers-uk.org/). Perhaps someone saw something but was too scared to step in at the time, or cannot give evidence or information for fear of reprisal to themselves or family - online anonymity may alleviate some of these fears of passing information on.
