George Clooney has been involved in peace talks in Sudan for a while now, but just recently his Satellite Sentinel Project (SSP) found physical evidence of some of the atrocities that occurred there.

The SSP has reportedly found evidence of mass graves in the South Kordofan area through satellite imagery and eyewitness accounts. They were tipped off to the area by witnesses, spawning a deeper investigation. This discovery seems to corroborate accounts of the Government of Sudan killing suspected members of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement.

Fighting continues to break out in areas of South Sudan following its independence, and evidence of mass graves has been emerging of late.

John Prendergast, who co-founded the SSP with Clooney, made a statement about the discovery: “This evidence demonstrates the urgent need for a full-scale international investigation into the violence in South Kordofan,” said Prendergast. “Diplomacy as usual backed by no tangible international pressures is a recipe for ongoing death and destruction. The time has arrived for the international community to create a heavy cost for the kinds of crimes depicted in this report, and root that cost within the framework of the international responsibility to protect doctrine.”

There’s sure to be more news about this soon, but despite the horrors behind it, it’s good to see that the efforts of Clooney and others are paying off.
