On the final chapter of "We Are Bellingcat" by Elliot Higgins and it has just been dealing with the pressures on the organisation and individual members in investigating crimes using their open source method. The nature of the work is incredibly intense , and because it involves war crimes, images and videos on social media and a lot more this can result in PTDS for some investigators.
I wont go into the details and would suggest you read the book to see what this incredible team are doing.
The final sentence in the "Mice Catch Cat" is very pertinent , not just to Bellingcat , but to other organisations and teams that I know are developing.
"While it's true I could do little to stop an attack, our opponents can do nothing to stop what we are becoming"
Bellingcat are a force for good as are the people that I speak of, and I have just found there is a film here
Appropriate music is Midnight Oil's "Beds Are Burning" , Peter Garrett being an active ecological politician as well as still fronting the band.
