As an award-winning actor, producer, director and screenwriter, George Clooney is no stranger to the spotlight. Today, however, Clooney is drawing the country’s eyes with his decision to spend a sizable Nespresso paycheck on a satellite aimed at Sudanese dictator  Omar al-Bashir. Clooney is open about his espionage project, telling The Guardian “[m]ost of the money I make on the [Nespresso] commercials I spend keeping a satellite over the border of North and South Sudan to keep an eye on Omar al-Bashir.”

The dictator, who recently fled from Nigeria to avoid begin arrested and charged for war crimes, has been denounced by human rights advocated worldwide for the inhumane and illegal acts committed in Darfur.

Clooney founded and funds the Satellite Sentinel Project,a spy program which tracks the dictator’s army and attempts to protect the lives of innocent civilians by warning them of upcoming attacks. Clooney says “the idea of a government attacking and killing its own innocent men, women and children” was the motivation that led to his involvement in the cause. He remains devoted to aiding the people of Darfur and spreading awareness of the current humanitarian crisis.

Prisons profit from exploiting life and labour

Most young workers don’t want anything to do with manual labour jobs in meat and dairy, and as a result, a large majority of agricultural workers are marginalized people

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
