Announced yesterday, the Satellite Sentinel Project site has finally launched — giving the world an unprecedented look at the situation on the ground in southern Sudan.

Spearheaded by George Clooney and his Not On Our Watch org (in partnership with Google, the U.N., and other anti-genocide organizations), the site will provide almost real-time updates of troop movements, civilians in conflict, and other signs of a potential civil war.

“We are the anti-genocide paparazzi,” Clooney told Time. “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.”

As the project as just launched, we’ll provide more updates as we get them. Needless to say, this is yet another sign of just how far George Clooney is willing to go to prevent war in Sudan. It’s not everyday you see a celebrity hire satellites to engage both the public and warn those intent on causing harm that the world is watching. It’s as admirable as it is empowering to know such technology is no longer monopolized by governmental organizations. This is true 21st century activism.
