New Tactics, a community for people committed to human rights, is sponsoring a virtual discussion on "Using Mobile Phones in Action" from November 28 to December 4. is partnering with New Tactics and is also participating in this online conversation. We all believe that "strategic and tactical thinking, long used by business and military strategists, is an effective means for the human rights movement to expand options and possibilities of what can be done." The discussion will focus on tactics for activism using mobile phones.

Practicioners in the dicussions will include Ken Banks of, Evans Wafula of Africa Interactive, Noel Large of Interaction Belfast, and Natasha Dokovska of Journalists for Children and Womens' Rights and Protection of Environment. MobileActive's Katrin Verclas is a participant as well. We will be discussing how practitioners are using mobile phones in their work.
