Watching Darfur

Amnesty International's website Eyes on Darfur uses high resolution satellite imagery to keep watch over imperiled villages in the Darfur region of Sudan and puts the images online to enlist help preventing violence. The website was launched Wednesday in conjunction with a conference at UC Berkeley. "We're hoping that by shining a light that we will deter the abuse from ever happening," said Ariela Blatter, director of the Crisis Prevention and Response Center for Amnesty International USA.
