Many readers have contacted me asking whether they could submit stories of human rights violations and other forms of inequities to be published on this blog. Mindful of the fact that exposing human rights violations can go a long way to deter perpetrators and perhaps help bring them to justice, I have created a human rights abuse report hotline which is powered by a Human Rights Abuse Report Form.
The hotline is a channel through which victims and witnesses of human rights violations and other forms of abuse can submit detailed reports of violation. Submitted reports will be reviewed and published on this blog.
Help keep violators grounded by making them famous online! The power of the internet is enormous in the fight for human rights and social justice.
The HotLine is available on the top right-hand corner of this blog. It is presently on a trial period after which it will be evaluated and its future decided based on the quality of submissions. Suggestions on how the human rights abuse report hotline can be improved are welcomed.
Please use the hotline responsibly. Rumors or hearsay information will not be published.
UPDATE (2 June 2011): The trial period of the HotLine is now over and the page has been removed. It is worth stating that most reports submitted were unverifiable hence could not be published. However, reports could still be submitted via Contact Zuzeeko. I appreciate all those who took time to submit reports.
