was launched today by Amnesty International in hopes of shining a light on the tragedy in Darfur. They have apparently rented commercial satellites to basically "peep" over the walls in Darfur and show the world what is happening. Satellite images are being uploaded in as little as 24 hours after the fact, much faster than what has been available previously. The site shows villages already devastated by forces fighting in Darfur as well as highlights twelve villages that are at risk.
Best of all, there's opportunity to take action by either signing a global petition to purchasing a CD of John Lennon's music re-recorded by artists such as U2, Green Day, Christina Aguillera and Lenny Kravitz (out June 12th).
Take a look and then pass it along. The goal is basically international peer pressure.
