WITNESS empowers people to transform personal stories of abuse into powerful tools for justice, promoting public engagement and policy change.

Peter Gabriel traveled with Amnesty International's Human Rights Now! Tour and experienced the power of camrecorders. On 1992 WITNESS was born, and became an independent non-profit organization on 2001.

Check out this TEDtalk by Peter Gabriel "Fight injustice with video"

Can we transform this technology to be used in the moment when an unlawful detention happens? What new product/services are needed to reach other actors that could help in a case like that?

Sorry guys! I just saw Peter Gabriel's TEDtalk I mention on the Facebook community of openIDEO, posted before the challenge was launched. Anyway, I find it extremely inspiring!
