Board Members George Clooney and John Prendergast New York Times Op-Ed on Sudan's Rape of Darfur

This op-ed was originally published in The New York Times, and co-authored by board members George Clooney and John Prendergast.

 

In the early 2000s, a brutal conflict in western Sudan between the government and rebels led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Darfuris, with millions displaced as refugees. In 2004, the United States declared Sudan’s actions a genocide.

 

After that spike in attention and concern, the world has largely forgotten about Darfur. Unfortunately, the government of Sudan has not.

SSP report: "Janjaweed Reincarnate: Sudan's New Army of War Criminals"

One decade after Darfur’s Janjaweed militiamen earned global infamy as “devils on horseback,” Sudan is experiencing brutal violence at their hands once again. Newly armed and outfitted, re-branded as the "Rapid Support Force" (RSF) and flying the national flag, the government of President Omar al-Bashir has unleashed this new military entity, in a devastating campaign of mass atrocities. This report—the product of nine months of Satellite Sentinel Project and Enough Project research—traces the movements of the RSF across Sudan and exposes the civilian targeting that has become the hallmark of their activities. By connecting the Sudanese government’s own public statements with evidence from affected communities, the report lays out the case for the individual criminal responsibility of high-level Sudanese government officials for both the war crimes and crimes against humanity perpetrated by the RSF.

SSP Imagery Used in CAR Report: "Behind the Headlines: Drivers of Violence in the Central African Republic"

Since December 2013, the Central African Republic (CAR) has experienced extreme instability and violence, resulting in the death of at least 2,000 people, roughly 643,000 internally displaced persons, and an additional 100,000 refugees to the more than 200,000 that were already living in neighboring countries. While existing African Union and French forces have attempted to contain the fighting, peacemakers must think beyond immediate responses to the crisis. The violence will not end unless economic and political drivers of the conflict are addressed.
