This site is under construction.

This is the blog site for the EyeSAFEMoJo: the Safe Witness Journalism Project, which will be looking at the new ideas for training and support of frontline media creators in repressive environments, for safe, secure communications, digital security, data gathering, and safety support for the following folks

  • citizen and professional journalists, especially human rights, civil resistance and human security journalists;
  • investigative journalists
  • human rights defenders
  • environmental investigators and defenders
  • anti-violence workers
  • sexual violence defenders
  • anti-trafficking investigators;
  • legal defenders;
  • and many more

The Safe Witness Journalism Project is also excited to be partnering with Blackphone by Silent Circle, as a easily deployable tool, and will be outlining the ways in which supporters can assist in our provision of this and other security support to where it is needed most.

 

Please stay tuned for the full launch soon.

Journalism Triage Process for Civil Resistance and Human Rights Journalism

EyeSAFEMoJo’s JournoTriage Process for Civil Resistance and Human Rights Journalism is a simple concept that adopts traditional newsroom story prioritisation, combining it with the highly effective and universal First Responder’s Mass Casualty Assessment tool.

Journalism Triage was borne out of a demonstrated need for a fast, unambiguous classification system for the urgency of raw data and field reports from journalists and sources during civil resistance and human security crises.  Whilst similar to traditional colour coded news priority “slugs” in newsrooms,

JournoTriage combines a material (Security, political, repressive, casualty, legality and impunity) conditions crisis assessment of standardised coding system that is understood immediately by journalists, human security, medics, counter-disaster and international agencies -instantly.

TRIAGE CARD EYESAFEMOJO LOGO WPM TEXTJournoTriage is designed to fit seamlessly and operate concomitantly with existing crisis classification systems, both from a human security and medical perspective, to enable the most effective prioritisation of both crisis and everyday coverage of crisis, human rights, civil resistance, peace and post conflict journalism.

For Civil Resistance Journalism, we have adapted a Repressive Situation Emergency Medical Triage System and adapted it to frontline civil resistance and human rights journalism priorities within Repressive contexts: Colour Codes in two words that can immediately and without confusion convey the alert level of the situation to the receiver of the status classification. As the colour gets warmer, so does the situation.
