From the people to the people

About LeBloggers, an organization that took it upon themselves to live cover the municipality elections in Lebanon.

CUE:

“From the people, to the people” This is the motto of Lebloggers; a non-profit organization that took it upon themselves to gather volunteers, train them and send them off in five teams to cover the municipality elections live over the internet. So far they have had two training sessions to learn how to become citizen journalists; this involves having internet on their mobile phones and knowing how to send information over the internet instantly. How did they do it? Eleena Korban reports.
