Documentary material is indisputable evidence
We’re working closely with the Slovenian humanitarian worker Tomo Križnar in gathering documentary material. Tomo used the material he gathered together and his own experience as a reliable foundation for writing books about the bloodshed in Sudan, and the footage was used to make documentaries. You can also read Tomo’s letter of protest (link nahttp://www.slotraveler.com/charities/show_item/1204/Ustavimo-genocid-nad-staroselci-v-Sudanu.html)
All the documentary material that’s being gathered is essential for the conviction of the criminals in the international court. Luis Moreno Ocampo, the chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court in The Hague, stated: “The footage represents invaluable evidence for the court in The Hague.”
Based on his own experience and discussions with the indigenous peoples of the area, the world traveller and humanitarian worker Tomo Križnar has written two books about the situation in Sudan: Nuba: Pure People and Oil and Water.
In cooperation with director Maja Weiss, Tomo Križnar turned hours of footage into two influential documentaries, Eyes and Ears of God – Video Surveillance of Sudan and Dar Fur – War for Water, as well as several short documentaries.
With the help of H.O.P.E., the natives have a chance to capture the violence with small cameras, and simultaneously send this evidence via a satellite internet connection out into the world for the courts and politicians to see.
