Blackwater Watch is looking for volunteers in to help with a variety of tasks including web site/email/listserv communications, organizing public educational and fundraising events, etc. While much of this work can be done remotely from home, ideally the volunteers will be located in the greater Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, North Carolina area so as to facilitate personal meetings with the current organizers.
Blackwater Watch was formed in 2007 as a spin off of North Carolina Stop Torture Now. Headquartered in North Carolina, Blackwater Watch seeks to shine a light on Blackwater USA specifically, and private armies/mercenaries generally, with respect to their human rights violations, absence of accountability and their profiteering at the expense of, and lobbying for, war and conflict. Blackwater Watch represents a growing contingent of concerned individuals and groups including, but not limited to, human rights and peace activists, people of faith, civil libertarians, and veterans. Blackwater Watch is in solidarity with the people in Portrero, California and Mount Carroll, Illinois who are fighting Blackwater's mercurial growth and expansion.
