Civil Rights Defenders is an independent expert organisation founded in Stockholm, Sweden in 1982, with the aim of defending people’s civil and political rights. Everybody heard about the tragical story of Natalya Estemirova, a russian human rights activist, that was murdered on 2009 because she was investigating hundreds of cases of alleged kidnappings, torture and extrajudicial killings by Russian government troops or paramilitaries in Chechnya.
In order to protect human rights defenders, Civil Rights Defenders launches the Natalia project. They want to outfit those at high risk of kidnapping with a wristband that can alert the organization and social medias when a problem comes.
Once activated, a signal containing the exact GPS location is sent via mobile phone network to Civil Rights Defenders headquarters in Stockholm, and also to people in the vicinity who can immediately come to the rescue. Natalia Project Facebook and Twitter accounts are also quickly informed and people connected with them can also react.
At first, 55 civil right defenders will be equipped with these wristband. They are looking for donations to expand the project.
