KODAO Video in the Philippines
JOLA DIONES MAMANGUN says that people's video is still an effective tool. The Philippines-based KODAO Productions' executive director says the group aims "to use the medium of video and radio in disseminating people's issues in respect to human rights."
She currently works on producing a video advocacy project about displacement caused by "development" initiated by the national government.
Their focus is particularly about the mining project in Nueva Vizcaya, northern part of Luzon, and a video on this is due to be released in October 2009. Thanks to Frederick Noronha for the link. His blog, http://informationactivism.org is an amazing source for interesting projects.
