George Clooney @ UN Security Council on September 14, 2006Since 2003, more than 400,000 people have been killed in the western Darfur region, and more than 2 million have fled their homes. Says the website SaveDarfur.org: “Not since the Rwandan genocide of 1994 has the world seen such a calculated campaign of displacement, starvation, rape, and mass slaughter.”

George Clooney spoke to the UN Security Council yesterday to beg them to send peacekeeping forces into the Darfur region. This is not a new issue for him, however. Earlier in the year, he traveled to Sudan and Chad with his father, Nick Clooney, to document the situation. The three part video diary can be found on YouTube (Parts 1, 2, and 3).

There will be a rally in NYC on Sunday, September 17, 2006 (Central Park, East Meadow, 2-5pm). Attendees are urged to wear a blue hat to symbolize the need for UN peacekeepers. For more information visit Save Darfur.
