George Clooney writes to stop another genocide

HollywoodNews.com: George Clooney has always worked hard to raise awareness of various tragedies and now he’s using his writing to do this some more.

Clooney wrote a piece for ‘The Washington Post’ with John Prendergast, co-founder of the Enough Project, in order to bring attention to what is going on in the Sudanese region, Abyei, states RadarOnline.com.

In the piece, he is asking that the developed nations step in to prevent a possible deadly ethnic war, like Darfur, from occurring.

What do you think about Clooney’s work in this field?

    Some people on various blogs have made assumptions about what Clooney wants to do without even reading what he is saying. He wants to use diplomacy to prevent more genocide in Sudan. Diplomacy does not cost anything and is a wise investment. It could not only save the lives of people in south Sudan, but it could well end up preventing international military intervention and/or other types of aid that would cost lives and money. Regardless of what you think of Clooney as a person, his message about Sudan is valid.

    It’s sickening to think that genocide is still in full force around the world. Thankfully the powerful in Hollywood are trying to help out as much as they can. Like George Clooney, Uwe Boll’s new film Attack on Darfur is trying to get people to pay attention. It shoves you into the horror that surrounds Sudan and isn’t afraid to show the unbearable. This film hits you hard and doesn’t let up for the sake of brutal honesty. I’m pretty sure the DVD comes out Oct. 26th.
