Hi DIYDrones community! Amazing work you guys are doing!!
We're a group of researchers from Goldsmiths University London, supporting migrants rights organizations in Europe and North Africa to document and bring accountability for the death of migrants at the EU's maritime borders.
We're setting up a platform - watchthemed.crowdmap.com - using all kinds of technology to try and document and map violations in the Mediterranean. We're doing this in collaboration with Boats4People, an important international campaign that will take place this summer between Italy and Tunisia, coalescing around a solidarity boat that will travel between the two shores. http://www.boats4people.org
We thought of trying out drones to monitor the med, fly banners, launching them from from the coast or the solidarity boat. But for our project this summer - 1-20 July - it will be too tight for us to experiment with this technology on our own...
We just wondered if someone in your community might be based in Italy or Tunisia and just might want to experiment in support of our project...
For more info and contacts please view the document attached.
Thanks for your attention on short notice, if not for this time, we'll surely be in touch in the future!
