We're following calls for human rights monitoring in #WesternSahara as the UN peacekeeping force's mandate is up for renewal. Seeking videos from weekend protest in Dakhla as reported below. Any help appreciated.  http://allafrica.com/stories/201404141453.html

Please share these tips for filming protests and police conduct #ferguson #citizenjournalism #howto  
As protests continue, citizen media is flowing out of Ferguson, Missouri. These WITNESS resources can help citizen witnesses film more safely, ethically and effectively.

Metadata has a bad name these days, but we discuss how it could be harnessed by activists for good. 
Information like geotags, a form of metadata, can help poachers find animals to hunt down, or allow the NSA to find out a lot about a potential target's movements. But should that prevent us from using social media entirely?
