Global Voices Online

Interesting site started at Harvard Law School. It covers issues like ethnicity, freedom of speech and human rights. The kind of stuff that we discussed in class today doesn't seem to get attention in other citizen journalism-oriented sites. Maybe that's not a fair comparison though, since those were hyperlocal.

Anyway, worth a peep.

(Their stated goal):

"At a time when the international English-language media ignores many things that are important to large numbers of the world’s citizens, Global Voices aims to redress some of the inequities in media attention by leveraging the power of citizens’ media. We’re using a wide variety of technologies - weblogs, wikis, podcasts, tags, aggregators and online chats - to call attention to conversations and points of view that we hope will help shed new light on the nature of our inter-connected world."
