Holla Back NYC

In this new website titled 'Holla Back NYC', they encourage local citizens to mobile-camera snap any sources of harrassment - and to post the picture, with words, to publicly humiliate the offender. The site states:

"Holla Back NYC empowers New Yorkers to Holla Back at street harassers. Whether you're commuting, lunching, partying, dancing, walking, chilling, drinking, or sunning, you have the right to feel safe, confident, and sexy, without being the object of someone's fantasy.So stop walkin' on and Holla Back: Send us pics of street harassers!"

Another indication of the move towards civil participation and the participatory panopticon?
