[liberationtech] Documenting police brutality in Kiev

Hi friends,

The recent mass protest in Kiev resulted in a violent crackdown against
protesters in scenes reminiscent of what the Arab Spring has witnessed. But
what is quite salient in the video shown here:

Is the intentional targeting and destruction of mobile phones of the
protesters. It kind of reminds me of the 'liberation technology' notion of
using phones to document brutality to be published online to mobilize
public opinion. Such devices could threaten expose human rights violations
and expose the ugly truth for the world to see.

Just notice how riot policemen intentionally wreck and destroy mobile
devices one by one. Kind of confirms the LibTech notion, doesn't it ?

Sincerely,

Walid
