Martus Human Rights Bulletins System
Developed by: The Benetech Initiative
Type of resource: Software
Target audience: General
Cost: Free access
Martus (Greek for witness) gives NGOs an easy-to-use and email-like technology tool to help collect, organize, safeguard and disseminate information. Martus was initially developed for use in human rights work, but the technology is applicable to anticorruption, environmental and other social justice sectors. With Martus, activists can use a computer to generate reports and keep them securely encrypted. Attachments of any type can be included in these bulletins, e.g. video, audio, etc. When an Internet connection is available, the activist can then upload it to a backup server and decide whether to maintain privacy, or web publish it on a web portal that Benetech is designing called the Martus Amplifier. Martus software is open source, free software.
