New technology presents new opportunities--and challenges--for the human rights movement. On the plus side, we use satellite images and social media to campaign in partnership with individuals and communities at risk of grave human rights violations. However, the use of mass surveillance and drones present a radical challenge to the protections of international law. It's up to us, the people of the world, to ensure that technology is used to promote, not violate, human rights. Join us!
