The Internet is the ideal channel through which to publish and circulate photos and videos of atrocities, and it is a place where citizens can organize to better resist and overthrow their oppressors — that is, provided they can gain access to the Internet. Enter Facebook and Google, which are working independently on two similar projects to enable free, uncensored Internet access from the sky.
