Code Red will be a strategic think tank and campaign clearinghouse to provide new resources and tactical advice to human rights groups across the world. It will also seek to establish a protection network for rights defenders who are increasingly exposed to aggressive personal retribution by state authorities.
The project’s steering group includes many influential figures in civil society, among them MI5 whistleblower Annie Machon, former US Congress member and presidential candidate Cynthia McKinney, former Wikimedia General Counsel Mike Godwin, Sunil Abraham, head of CIS India, OpenMedia’s David Christopher, Access Now’s Raegan McDonald, the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s International Rights Director Katitza Rodriguez and the former editor of Index on Censorship Judith Vidal-Hall.
