Our friend Raul Rothblatt asked us to pass this along, as it should be of interest to our readers. For more information, visit their website, join on Facebook, or E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Here's a blurb on what's going on:
What country has the best chance of establishing democracy for the first time in 2010? Surprise: It’s Guinea, a country of 10 million people in West Africa. Guineans deserve the right to make their own decisions, and YOU can help.
Alliance Guinea brings together Guineans & friends of Guinea committed to justice and democracy in the country. We are using a technology where Guineans can report on election problems and successes using their cell phones. It’s called Ushahidi, and it has been used in several countries, including in Haiti after the earthquake. We need volunteers to process the information. All you need is access to a computer and passion for democracy. This is one of the biggest stories of 2010. The election is June 27, so the time to act is now.
