Another angle

via Witness

I've mentioned Witness (Brooklyn) before. I had never heard of them, prior to sharing a bus ride and a crazy few days in Siem Reap. Prior to moving here, I had never heard of many, many things. In fact, the term "forced eviction" wasn't even in my lexicon. And now . . .

If you are so inclined, Witness just published a short video of their work in Cambodia and the forced eviction issue. With what little knowledge I have about them, it's my understanding that Witness approaches human right issues around the world from a media/information dissemination perspective. I spoke to Ryan (the guy in the video) a bit about how he ended up in this work, how he ended up marrying his creative proclivities with law and international human rights work. Interesting stuff.

I sound like a broken record: people amaze me.


  1. I don't think one can say this enough so I don't think you sound like a broken record. I sent this post along to a few friends of mine in Brooklyn.
