"At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, in January, Peter Gabriel and Gillian Caldwell, a documentary filmmaker who's executive director of Witness, an organization based in New York that trains human-rights advocates to use video cameras to document abuses tried to round up corporate support for a new project: a Web site that would act as a portal for images of human rights violations that may be captured by the proliferating number of video cameras and mobile phones in the hands of people around the world."
Witness (www.witnessmediaarchive.org), an organization based in Brooklyn, N.Y., that trains human-rights advocates to use video cameras to document abuses. Gabriel helped found the group in 1992 and is now chairman of its board of directors.
