Clooney 'Satellite Project' Monitors Volatile Sudan

Ad Feedback

People around the world will be watching when an estimated 4 million Sudanese voters go to the polls on Sunday, thanks to the new Satellite Sentinel Project.

The project, sponsored by actor and human rights activist George Clooney, will monitor problem areas of the region in an effort to prevent more genocide.

"We need to get in there and do everything we can, not just as a country, but the world united in protecting these people," Clooney told CBN News.

Currently, observers are especially concerned that the Muslim government in north Sudan could attack the Christian south - which is trying to secede.  Such a move could plunge Sudan back into another bloody civil war.

"We are the anti-genocide paparazzi," Clooney told Time Magazine in a recent interview. "We want them to enjoy the level of celebrity attention that I usually get."

"If you know your actions are going to be covered, you tend to behave much differently than when you operate in a vacuum," he added.

Jonathan Hutson, director of communications for the Enough Project, an anti-genocide group, spoke more about the Satellite Project on the CBN News Channel's Morning News, Jan. 7. Click play to watch the interview.
